States sue to block sale of 3D-printed weapon designs online

"I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public", Trump said in a Twitter post that referred to the powerful National Rifle Association lobbying group. "Already spoke to NRA, doesn't seem to make much sense!" the President tweeted Tuesday, without offering further details about what he'll do about the weapons.

"What the blue states got here is a court order that will force us to take down files off the internet, says Blackman".

The 3D-blueprints were removed from the site in 2013 because the government said it violated global regulation laws, but eventually surrendered, concluding 3D-gun blueprints count as constitutionally protected speech. Separately, attorneys general in 21 states urged Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday to withdraw from the settlement with Defence Distributed, saying it "creates an imminent risk to public safety". Lisa Murkowski tweeted, linking to a news story on the guns. "As we argued in our suit, it is insane to give criminals the tools to build untraceable, undetectable 3D printed guns at the touch of a button", Underwood wrote.

"I still would be able to travel to the State of NY quickly, download the code one time, return to New Jersey, and print the 3D guns in New Jersey indefinitely".

American rider Lawson Craddock, who broke his shoulder in the opening stage and sits last overall, also broke down into tears upon reaching the finish.

Wilson first designed a 3D-printable plastic pistol, called the "Liberator.380", in 2012 and put the plans online.

The US district judge Robert Lasnik issued the order Tuesday afternoon, saying: "There is a possibility of irreparable harm because of the way these guns can be made".

It would have allowed anyone with access to a printer to potentially build a lethal weapon, which opponents say can not be seen by a metal detector or tracked to a licence holder.

Nelson's bill would make it illegal for anyone to publish a digital file online that programs a printer to manufacture a firearm. When the case was finally settled in June, the agency said the decision was made in the interests of the security and foreign policy of the United States and in consultation with the Justice Department.

The NRA said in a statement that "anti-gun politicians" and some members of the news media wrongly claim that 3D printing technology "will allow for the production and widespread proliferation of undetectable plastic firearms".

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.

People can use the blueprints to manufacture a plastic gun using a 3D printer. And they're not usually very accurate.

Wilson says he plans to post his 3D printed gun plans when the State Department's prohibition ends on Wednesday.

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.

He also argues that the State Department's actions violate the Administrative Procedure Act, by neglecting to inform Congress of the changes, in addition to state's rights under the Tenth Amendment. But due to the pending legal battle, Wilson has made a decision to abide by the cease-and-desist orders, and will not make DEFCAD available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Los Angeles.
