A federal judge in Washington state on Tuesday temporarily blocked an agreement with the State Department that would have allowed Texas-based Defense Distributed to publish documents that include instructions for making the guns with a 3-D printer.
The order has put on hold a plan for people to be able to legally download blueprints to make 3-D printed guns.
A US judge on Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order to stop the release of 3D printed gun blueprints hours before they were set to hit the internet. A judge in Seattle granted the injunction Tuesday after eight U.S. states and the District of Columbia argued that criminals and terrorists would use the blueprints to make untraceable, undetectable plastic weapons.
Shkop said he thinks 3D-printed plastic guns are more of a novelty than a commonplace threat.
"These downloadable guns are unregistered and very hard to detect, even with metal detectors, and will be available to anyone regardless of age, mental health or criminal history".
A Texas company has the blueprints and was ready to download them free of charge. Wilson has argued that the restriction on his company violates its First Amendment rights. The Trump administration reversed course, agreeing to allow Defense Distributed to publish the tutorials online.
Some gun rights advocates said a ban would infringe on their rights and have no impact on crime.

The Trump-Cohen Tape Reveals A Concealed Affair And A Corrupt Coverup
The audio recording isn't clear, so it's hard to tell if the president is asking Cohen to pay in cash or not pay in cash. Rudy Giuliani tells The Associated Press that Trump did not want to pay cash and "suggesting otherwise is ridiculous".
"I can control the distribution of firearms but I can't control the distribution of printers".
U.S. President Donald Trump speaks about the economy while delivering remarks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 27, 2018. "It's illegal to own an untraceable and undetectable firearm at this point", he said, citing the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.
"These guns which have no serial numbers and are not traceable by law enforcement are risky", Grewal said.
3D printed guns generally fall apart after a couple of shots. He understands concerns about the guns' ability to be detected, but laws already make it illegal for people to possess undetectable guns.
The judge has scheduled a hearing on August 10. But gun industry experts have expressed doubt that criminals would go to the trouble, since the printers needed to make the guns are very expensive, the guns themselves tend to disintegrate quickly and traditional firearms are easy to come by.
Some background: In 2013, Cody Wilson, the founder of Defense Distributed, uploaded on his website the design files he used to create the first fully 3-D-printed gun. "The Attorney General's actions today are an important step in developing common sense gun measures that will help to protect public safety".
Last month, in a surprise move, it won its case, with the US Justice Department ruling that Americans may "access, discuss, use and reproduce" the technical data.
