Everyone’s been freaking out over the whole 3D gun thing. If you haven’t read this fantastic thread on it, you really should.
The entire debate even caught President Trump’s attention.
I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public. Already spoke to NRA, doesn’t seem to make much sense!

Well guys, it looks like this entire thing is paused until further notice. A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order, which essentially stops the release of the downloadable blueprints for the guns.
U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik issued the order a day after eight states sued the government to block a settlement reached by the Trump administration last month allowing a Texas-based company, Defense Distributed, to resume online-sharing of blueprints for the 3D firearms.
