TEXAS: Company Defies Court, Sells 3D Gun Plans

Courthouse News reports:

Blueprints for 3D-printed guns are now available to anybody who wants them, the owner of a Texas company said Tuesday, claiming a federal judge’s order the day before applied only to free online instructions.

Consumers in the United States can name their own price for the controversial files that began shipping on USB drives Tuesday morning by Austin-based Defense Distributed, owner Cody R. Wilson told reporters at a news conference.

“This judge’s order stopping us from simply giving things away was only an authorization that we can sell it, that we can mail it, that we can e-mail it, that we can provide it by secure transfer,” Wilson said. “I am doing all of those things,” he added. The company’s selection of 10 3D-printable weapons includes an AR-15, Beretta 92FS and Ruger 10/22.
