State Department Demands Takedown Of 3D-Printable Gun Files For Possible Export Control Violations

The battle for control of dangerous digital shapes may have just begun.

On Thursday, Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson received a letter from the State Department Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance demanding that he take down the online blueprints for the 3D-printable “Liberator” handgun that his group released Monday, along with nine other 3D-printable firearms components hosted on the group’s website, while it reviews the files for compliance with export control laws for weapons known as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or ITAR. By uploading the weapons files to the Internet and allowing them to be downloaded abroad, the letter implies Wilson’s high-tech gun group may have violated those export controls.

All of this brouhaha, just in time for Obama's visit to Cody Wilson's adopted hometown of Austin, TX:

Traffic will be affected downtown and in eastern Travis County on Thursday because of President Barack Obama’s visit.

Air Force One is scheduled to touch down at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport about 12:15 p.m. and is set to depart about 5:35, officials have said.

In between, Obama will visit New Tech High School in Manor and Applied Materials, which is off U.S. 290 near Gilles Road.
