And, he is seeking "to prevent Defense Distributed posting the downloadable guns online".

The State Department's decision to settle the case last month came as a surprise to pretty much everyone, including Defense Distributed, according to Wired. The U.S. State Department quickly ordered Wilson to remove his plans, arguing that they violated worldwide arms treaties because the plans were in effect distributing weapons across the world.

Wilson sued in 2015, arguing that his weapons' plans were a form of speech and that his First Amendment rights were being stifled. David Cicilline of Rhode Island and Seth Moulton of MA, said they planned to introduce a bill Tuesday that would prohibit 3D printed plastic guns that can not be detected in standard security screens.

"These downloadable guns are unregistered and very hard to detect, even with metal detectors, and will be available to anyone regardless of age, mental health or criminal history", said Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

"Yesterday, [Defense Distributed] sued me for trying to keep untraceable guns out of the hands of terrorists and criminals". Wilson said he would make the plans available August 1 - the day, his website said, when "the age of the downloadable gun formally begins".

Critics generally say easily printable guns could allow people to circumvent federal, state, and local gun restrictions by home printing their own weapons with little oversight. Ferguson asked. "These downloadable guns are unregistered and very hard to detect, even with metal detectors, and will be available to anyone regardless of age, mental health or criminal history".

Joining were attorneys general from California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Pennsylvania. He said the settlement violated states'rights to regulate firearms. Wilson posted the plans for his gun, called the Liberator, onto his website, where the plans were downloaded thousands of times.

"This is part of the Trump Derangement Syndrome". The attorneys general, representing citizens' interests and citing states' rights, are more likely to succeed on standing, regardless of the ultimate outcome. "This has nothing to do with President Trump", Gottlieb said. "So be it. I'm not backing down on public safety", Grewal posted on Twitter. "If people have the ability to download these guns arbitrarily, the danger to the public is going to be enormous", Best said.

"We hope that the Trump Administration will take the reasonable step of slowing down the settlement and sharing its reasons for doing a complete 180", she said in a statement to HuffPost.

Gottlieb says the entire thing is political, that if some Washington leaders had their way they would prohibit all guns.

It comes as little surprise, then, to read that less than a year after a mass shooting in Las Vegas that saw the killing or wounding of some 480 people, yet another law has been passed in America; one that makes it easier for people to get a gun.

A firearms expert told CNN that a 3D printed gun would need to have some type of metal component because it's federal law.
