US Government Fails To Stop The Advance Of 3D-Printed Gun

On Thursday, the US Department of State demanded that non-profit Defense Distributed (DD) removes the blueprints for its fully-functional 3D-printed handgun, the Liberator, from the recently-launched Defcad repository.

According to the Office of Defence Trade Controls Compliance, such designs are likely to be illegal since they breach international arms control regulations.

By the time the organisation complied, the files had already been downloaded more than 100,000 times and, according to the founder Cody Wilson, are now safe in the hands of Internet communities.
