The company had promised the age of the downloadable gun formally begins August 1, but in court, the company said it started distributing gun files Friday.
Several U.S. states said on Monday that they would jointly sue the Trump administration in a last-ditch effort to block the public from being able to download blueprints for 3-D printable guns.
Late Sunday, Pennsylvania state officials successfully stopped the plans from being available in that state after taking legal action, but revealed the files had actually been up Friday and downloaded by 1,000 people. 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.
"It is, simply, insane to give criminals the tools to build untraceable, undetectable 3D-printed guns at the touch of a button".
The lawsuit, announced Monday by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D), asks a federal judge to halt a June settlement between the Trump administration and digital firearms nonprofit Defense Distributed. Wilson, a gun rights activists, has been arguing that the First Amendment protects his constitutional right to share the 3D files as free speech.
The U.S. ordered Defense Distributed founder, Cody Wilson, to remove blueprints for 3D printing a gun in 2013.
The gun control groups had argued not halting the distribution would "cause immediate and irreparable harm to the United States national security" and that of individual USA citizens. "We won't stand by as New Yorkers' safety is jeopardized by this abrupt about-face by the federal government". The federal government had prevailed at every step in the court process, according to PBS, until they suddenly agreed to settle Wilson's lawsuit out of court, allowing him to distribute the plans and even giving him $40,000 in legal fees.
Attorneys general for California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Pennsylvania ― all Democrats ― have also joined Ferguson's lawsuit against the State Department. "The American people have the unquestionable right to access this information". The agency said that the company's 3D-printed pistol designs were a violation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations.
But it turns out that Defense Distributed actually rang that bell before the lawsuit was filed.
Critics have blasted the settlement, saying it threatens public safety and national security by opening the door for the production of unregulated and untraceable firearms. His office will need to work fast if they want to stop the spread of these schematics for 3D-printed guns.
