Judge Blocks Trump Admin From Allowing Posting 3D Gun Printing Information

A U.S. judge has blocked the Trump administration from allowing a company to post online plans for making untraceable 3D guns.

Nineteen states and the District of Columbia had sought an injunction to stop a settlement that the government had reached with Austin, Texas-based Defense Distributed.

The states argued that online access to the undetectable plastic guns would pose a security risk and could be acquired by felons or terrorists.

Seattle-based U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik agreed Monday to the proposed risk.

The State Department had reached the deal with the company after the agency removed the 3D gun-making plans from a list of weapons or technical data that are not allowed to be exported.
