Judge temporarily blocks download of 3D-printed plastic gun plans

On Wednesday, Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) informed R. Clarke Cooper, who is nominated as the next assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, that he would be objecting to his confirmation until the administration reverses its policy. But a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order, to stop the release.

Defense Distributed argues that this is a simple First Amendment question.

The belief led to home and other plaintiffs to file a lawsuit in 2015 against the state department, which was quietly settled in 2018. A total of 20 states (and DC) have sent a separate letter expressing their support.

Many anti-gun politicians and members of the media have wrongly claimed that 3-D printing technology will allow for the production and widespread proliferation of undetectable plastic firearms. "I hope the President does the right thing and directs his administration to change course", Ferguson continued.

The NRA's statement came in the midst of a simmering debate over a June decision by the State Department to settle a lawsuit with Defense Distributed, a Texas-based digital firearms nonprofit, giving it the go-ahead to begin publishing blueprints for 3D-printed guns.

Since the weapons "did not create a military advantage", he told the judge, "how could the government justify regulating the data?"

By the end of the day Wednesday, the California gun-rights groups' website was offline.

A four-year legal battle followed between digital weapons publisher Defense Distributed, pro-gun activists the Second Amendment Foundation and the federal government, which concluded with a surprise decision that USA citizens can "access. use and reproduce" the plans.

Family stunned by pizza delivery guy's piano skills
Julie Varchetti said her husband ordered Hungry Howie's Pizza for dinner Wednesday night for their family. Dudal noticed that the family had a baby grand piano in their home when they opened the door.

Canada's Ministry of Public Safety and spokesperson Tim Warmington said, "government officials are closely monitoring developments related to 3D printed firearms".

The weapons, made of the same plastic as Legos, are unrecognizable by metal detectors and are untraceable because they don't have serial numbers.

On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled that posting designs for 3-D printed guns online is illegal - a decision that will likely be challenged - after the State Department dropped its five-year-long case against Wilson in July.

A Texas company's plans to post blueprints for 3D printable guns online for the public has been stopped - at least for now, according to the New Jersey attorney general.

The NRA followed suit. By law, it's not considered a gun until someone puts the parts together. No materials are undetectable or invisible, period.

"And, by the way, people have been making homemade guns since before the founding of the Republic", he continued, adding that you don't need a license to make a firearm for personal use; only for sale or distribution. Richard wrote at 8/2/2018 3:56:22 AM: This action is merely political theater, and means nothing.

"Just before I wrote this piece, I typed a single phrase and found plans for multiple guns", David French wrote for the National Review.
