A federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from allowing a Texas company to post plans for making untraceable 3D guns online, CBS News reports. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia sued to stop an agreement the government had reached with Texas-based Defense Distributed, saying instructions on how to print plastic guns could be acquired by felons or terrorists. “It is the untraceable and undetectable nature of these small firearms that poses a unique danger,” U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik said.
