Pennsylvania and New Jersey blocked from downloading 3D printed guns

Pennsylvania Attorney Gen. Josh Shapiro and Governor Tom Wolf has sued Cody Wilson’s company Defense Distributed in an effort to stop them from distributing 3D printed plans in Pennsylvania. The company agreed to block Pennsylvania users after an emergency hearing Sunday.

Gov Wolf said “untraceable guns in the hands of unknown users is too daunting to stand by and not take action.”

New Jersey also attempting to block the 3D printing technology was sued by Cody Wilson’s company.  New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal last week sent the group a letter claiming that making the files available to New Jersey residents would be a violation of state law.


Wilson said Sunday he would temporarily block users with New Jersey IP addresses from accessing the files when they are posted. Later, in an email to NJ Advance Media, Wilson said he “elected to correct your attorney general in court” and filed papers in the U.S. District Court in West Texas.

The suit also names Los Angeles City Attorney Michael Feuer, who sent a similar letter, as a defendant.


Editor’s note. I’m guessing these Attorney General’s never heard of a VPN, virtual private network.
