USA states make last-minute legal bid to halt 3-D online guns

President Donald Trump on Tuesday raised concerns about the sale of plastic guns made with 3-D printers, a day after several USA states sued his administration to block online publication of designs to make weapons that security screening may not detect.

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.

In an emergency hearing over the phone this week, Shapiro's office asked a judge for a restraining order to block Defense Distributed's website in Pennsylvania, which was granted. State Department officials said the plans violated US export laws.

President Donald Trump says he is studying whether guns made by a three-dimensional (3-D) printer should be sold in the United States. "I will waste all my time", Wilson said.

They are often called "ghost guns" because it's possible for people to make their own firearm without the serial number which allows cops to trace them.

Defense Distributed's website said it would publish the files on Wednesday but blueprints for seven guns already were available for download on Tuesday. Among them were schematics for the Liberator, a single-shot.380-caliber handgun made nearly entirely of 3D-printed plastic.

"There is a possibility of irreparable harm because of the way these guns can be made", Judge Lasnik said ahead of the plans' scheduled nationwide release on Wednesday.

On Monday, eight states filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration to block the settlement.

On the legislative front, Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton, a Democrat, said early Tuesday he would introduce a bill in the House that would seek to include the weapons in the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, while Senators Chuck Schumer and Ed Markey, both Democrats, have made similar noises of stopping their availability in the market. But on the evening of July 31, a judge issued a temporary restraining order in response to a legal challenge from state attorneys general that prevents the information from being published.

The blueprints can be used with special printers and certain plastics or metal to manufacture the instruments capable of discharging live rounds.

As a result, the state attorneys are also suing the Trump administration for making the settlement with Wilson.

Criminals in the comfort of their own homes could fire up their computer, download a file and use a printer to make a gun. Officials say 1,000 people have already downloaded blueprints for AR-15 rifles.

He added that it didn't "seem to make much sense!".

The company's founder, Cody Wilson, developed a printable plastic pistol known as the "Liberator.380" in 2012 and put the plans online, but was blocked by the federal government. "The administration supports this almost two-decade old law".

Wilson has argued that the restriction on his company violates its First Amendment rights.
