Washington leads multi-state lawsuit against Trump admin over 3D printed guns

Enlarge  The Defense Distributed website this

Attorney Gen. Josh Shapiro says Texas-based pro-gun group Defense Distributed agreed to block Pennsylvania users after an emergency hearing Sunday night in federal court in Philadelphia.

"We hope that the Trump Administration will take the reasonable step of slowing down the settlement and sharing its reasons for doing a complete 180", she said in a statement to HuffPost.

Just days before the blueprints for 3D printable guns get released to the public, several USA states have jointly filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration in a bid to stop the release.

On Wednesday, you will legally be able to download the digital plans for a gun that you can then load into your 3D printer and create a plastic, untraceable firearm from the comfort of your home. Ferguson's lawsuit comes after the Trump administration unexpectedly settled a separate lawsuit, which paved the way for the proliferation of do-it-yourself handgun design plans on the Internet.

The states will ask a federal judge to issue a restraining order and an injunction to block the publication, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson said at a news conference in Seattle. But Defense Distributed challenged that effort on Sunday by filing a federal lawsuit in Texas.

In 2013, the designer, Cody Wilson, who is also a gun activist, posted the plans online, only to have the government tell him to take them down, arguing the plans could violate global traffic in arms regulations. According to its website, "Defense Distributed is a non-profit, private defense firm". "We won't stand by as New Yorkers' safety is jeopardized by this abrupt about-face by the federal government". Wilson claimed the government had violated his First Amendment right to free speech, but federal courts hadn't appeared sympathetic to his case, and as recently as April the State Department seemed willing to continue litigating.

Lunar eclipse: Stargazers in Singapore catch century's longest 'blood moon'
To astronomers, this is a thrilling example of a total lunar eclipse - the longest one we'll see for the rest of the century. A total lunar eclipse - the longest of the century - is now starting to become visible for much of the Eastern Hemisphere.

A retired Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives agent told CBS News that the guns are unregulated and untraceable and a threat to public safety. "The internet will serve guns, the gun is downloadable", Wilson said.

"Our Congress has carefully crafted laws to protect us and, in one moment, without any consultation with experts, the administration undoes it", said Ferguson, who also called the settlement "arbitrary and capricious". Durkan said while she was the U.S. Attorney for Western Washington her office considered 3D-printed guns a risky threat for countering terrorism, especially in how the plastic guns could be brought onto commercial flights.

The 3D-printed guns files are slated to be uploaded on DEFCAD.com this Wednesday.
