The idiots at the state department are too late.
Last I heard,(several days ago) they had far exceeded 100,000 downloads. Very soon others will reverse engineer those blueprints and begin producing their own. You can't stop the signal. The internet is forever. And I'm pretty sure there are no laws against making our own guns.

Not only that. It seems that a Canadian has made a printed rifle that has done 14 rounds.
.
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/... Mashable.com reports that "Matthew" has successfully fired 14 rounds from a .22 rifle created from a 3D printer.
The rifle represents Matthew's second prototype and is called Grizzly 2.0. The barrel of the first prototype cracked after firing just one round, so he adjusted the barrel's thickness and fired 14 rounds from the next model before experiencing any problems.
The Grizzly 2.0 is a single shot rifle. The user reloads it after each shot by taking off the barrel, clearing it of the spent shell casing, and loading another round.

With video on this one
http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/08/05/3d... He used a Stratasys Dimension 1200ES industrial 3D printer to make the weapon but with the rapid increase in technology in this area it can't be long before guns can be made by widely available commercial models.
