A Texas-based company has begun posting instructions for making guns using a 3D printer after receiving a green light by a federal judge on Friday.
Austin-based Defense Disturbed released the internet-accessible plans that allow anyone with access to a 3D printer to create firearms from polymer, which can't be flagged by metal detectors.
The guns are also untraceable because they're homemade and don't have serial numbers.
The latest news from around North Texas.
A settlement between the State Department and Defense Distributed allowed the release of plans for guns online.
Days later, Defense Disturbed agreed to block users in Pennsylvania after an emergency hearing Sunday in federal court in Philadelphia.
Attorney Gen. Josh Shapiro said he, Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania State Police sued the company before its formal rollout of a downloadable gun program Wednesday. He says the company said in court it actually began distributing gun files Friday and by Sunday, 1,000 people had downloaded 3D plans for AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifles.
