U.S. State Department moves to block 3D-printed gun plans online

Lucas Mearian | July 8, 2015
U.S. State Department announced new proposed rules that would effectively make it illegal to post blueprints for 3D-printed guns online.

In the public notice, the State Department revises the definition of an export in an attempt to "remove activities associated with a defense article's further movement or release outside the United States," including any technical data" posted on the Internet.

The public has less than 60 days (until Aug. 3) to comment on the proposed rules by sending an email to with the subject line, "ITAR Amendment -Revisions to Definitions; Data Transmission and Storage."
