There was a little noticed settlement in the lawsuit filed by Defense Distributed and the Second Amendment Foundation against the U.S. Government.
If you recall, the State Department tried to shut down DD’s website that was publishing downloadable schematics for 3D-printed guns under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations.
DD was created by the same guy that started Hatreon, the crowdfunding site for alt-right (some say, hate) groups.
DD and the SAF sued the US claiming that the “prior restraint” violated DD’s First Amendment free speech rights.
In the settlement, the State Department “agreed to pay a significant portion of the plaintiffs’ attorney’s fees, and to return $10,000 in State Department registration dues paid” by DD.
Soon, anyone with a computer and a 3D printer will be able to download CAD files to make their own lethal weapons, including the infamous AR-15.
