Federal judge rules online blueprints for 3D-printed guns illegal

A federal judge on Tuesday struck down the Trump administration’s effort to allow blueprints for making guns from 3-D printers to be posted online. District Judge Robert Lasnik said the State Department violated federal law by letting Defense Distributed publish downloadable blueprints for the untraceable, undetectable, mainly plastic firearms.

Good luck with that. They're more likely to win the war on drugs than a war on the internet. Once it's on the net nothing but a catastrophic solar flare will get that gun design off the web.

What the hell is wrong with federal judges. Progressive activists legislating from the bench. Disgusting.

Protected by the 1st and 2ed amendments. Gun control is dying, even a European can print off a functional firearm at home right now. I can convert my AR to full auto with a Quick Link, which can be tossed when I am done. Judge can go fuck himself, have a 3d printable AR: http://www.printedfirearm.com/bolt-together-ar-15-lower-receiver/

Federal Judge decides the 1st amendment is null and void?

What a loon; this seems to be likely to be overturned, for the judge's reasoning alone if nothing else. FTA: Lasnik cited the State Department’s prior view that publishing such instructions could threaten U.S. foreign policy, national security and even world peace by enabling criminals, including terrorists outside the United States, to obtain the firearms.
