3D-Printed Gun Blueprints Spark Fierce Debate

What would have been a milestone for gun “manufacturing” gets the boot: Today was set to be the first day youÂ’d be able to download blueprints to 3D-print a gun at home.

But instead, a federal judge blocked the public availability of the blueprints just a handful of hours before they were set to hit the open internet.

But what happened? Gun control advocates took action and numerous states filed a joint lawsuit aimed at preventing the blueprints from becoming public, citing a threat to public safety...and it worked.

The view from Washington: President Trump was skeptical (FYI, the NRA notes that undetectable plastic guns have been illegal for 30 years, and the White House supports that law).

Another perspective, from Medium blogger BJ Campbell: 3D-printed guns would barely work, he writes, not to mention...they're way more expensive to build than buying a regular handgun.

Bottom line: Thought the gun control debate was already heated? Technological innovations like 3D printing will only create more battle lines.
