Texan says he’s selling 3D-printed gun plans, despite court ruling

EXCLUSIVE 3D Gun Proponent Defiant Offers Firearm Blueprints for Sale

Wilson told reporters Tuesday that while the injunction blocks him from posting the files publicly, he is still able to sell them online and distribute them via email or mail on a USB drive.

The owner of a company that makes blueprints for 3D-printed guns said Tuesday that he has begun selling instructions for making the guns despite a court order barring him from uploading the directions, The Associated Press reported. Wilson says he believes that selling them, instead of posting the plans for anyone to view or download for free, will not run afoul of the Seattle federal judge's Monday order.

"Anyone who wants to get these files is going to get them", Wilson said, noting he can only sell to USA customers.

Cody Wilson, the founder of Defense Distributed, said the judge's decision was a "kneecapping and subversion" of his First Amendment rights, which the ruling said were outweighed by the states' concerns about potential harm.

Critics say the blueprints will make it easier for felons, minors and mentally ill people to potentially make their own 3D-printed guns, which they fear can be made to be untraceable.

"Regulation under the (Arms Export Control Act of 1976) means that the files cannot be uploaded to the internet, but they can be emailed, mailed, securely transmitted, or otherwise published within the United States", the court order reads. I'm gonna sell it to them, I'm gonna ship them.

Gun control proponents are concerned the weapons made from 3-D printers will be untraceable, undetectable "ghost" firearms that pose a threat to global security.

"Because of our lawsuit, it is once again illegal to post downloadable gun files to the internet". "If they don't, President Trump will be responsible for anyone who is hurt or killed as a result of these weapons".

Wilson said he will continue to challenge the federal court order.

Wilson said he anticipates that states may try to sue to stop him from selling the plans, but that he is raising money for his legal defence.

Further, he said his company would be fine, and he portrayed his inability to post gun blueprints online as a violation of free speech. It's not just me selling these files.

In regards to the judge's ruling Monday, Wilson said, "We didn't get an interruption to the access of these files".
