3D-Printed Firearms

A Trump Administration proposal to transfer control of firearm exports from the State Department to the Commerce Department would ease restrictions on the online distribution of plans for 3D-printed guns. But legislation is pending in Congress to prohibit the online distribution of instructions and blueprints for 3D-printed firearms. Meanwhile, a group of state attorneys general have sued the Trump administration to stop a Texas-based company from publishing blueprints for several 3D-printed guns.
