Guest Dwight C Posted August 28, 2018 Share Posted August 28, 2018 Federal Judge Extends Ban Of 3D-Printed Gun Blueprints Mon. August 27, 2018 A federal judge in Seattle temporarily extended his order banning 3D printed gun blue prints from circulating online. The ruling blocks the Trump administration from allowing Texas firm Defense Distributed from releasing the blue prints pending a lawsuit brought on by several states. Cody Wilson — the owner of Defense Distributed — wanted to post the plans online so citizens could arm themselves without having to deal with licenses, serial numbers and registrations. However, his efforts were halted in July when a temporary injunction was filed against his plans. Wilson is arguing that the move violates his freedom of speech. “We were challenged by the government, the government said well okay great you’ve printed this gun, but you have to ask us for permission to put it on the internet,” he stated. “Well for about 5 years in federal court I disputed this and said no I don’t think I have to ask you for permission — I believe I have a First Amendment interest in doing this and of course all Americans would have a First Amendment interest in it.” President Trump has previously mentioned that he is speaking to the NRA on the matter of 3D printed guns.
