Stop 3D Guns demand Gun Control groups to court. Judge says “Nay.”

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Friday rejected a last-ditch effort by gun control groups to block the Trump administration from allowing the public to download blueprints for 3-D printable guns, declining to intervene just days before the designs are expected to go online.
U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman in Austin, Texas, denied the request for an order by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety and the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence at a hearing, saying he would state the reasons for his decision in a written order to follow.

U.S. judge denies gun control groups’ attempt to block 3-D gun blueprints.

Either the deal made with State is legally bulletproof or the Opposition bungled their petition or both. Consider that the judge was a twice Obama appointee, so you know he is not the most conservative guy around.  And I have no doubt that Brady, Everytown and Giffords went judge shopping for this one.

  1. “I want you to ban a drawing” is pretty much the definition of a First Amendment violation. I don’t think there is a judge in America that wants to get overturned that hard.

  2. This the feel-good story of the day.

    There’s more to the story that’s also good. Among them, they declared that essentially everything short of fully automatic 50 cal guns are removed from ITAR regulations.

    Remember that thing during Obama where the feds were arguing that putting up a video on how to clean your AR was an export and you could be arrested under ITAR? I don’t think that had much of chance of winning in court, but you’d still be relieved of your life’s savings fighting it. This ruling kills it deader than the Wicked Witch of the West.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick. Also, You can use html code to decorate your comment.
