Federal Judge Robert Lasnik extended a restraining order on 3-D gun blueprints. This countermands the Trump administration settlement in June 2018 allowing 3-D gun blueprints to be posted online beginning in August 2018.
Party to the lawsuit is Alan Gottlieb, founder of the 2nd Amendment Foundation. Gotlieb stated, “Judge Lasnik’s ruling involves some of the most amazing legal acrobatics I’ve ever seen. He has accepted the plaintiffs’ claim that the CAD files are only available on the so-called ‘Dark Web,’ but that’s not at all accurate. The files are available on the normal Internet, and now, thanks to the court, they are available by links in the court record.”
Gottlieb added, “It is particularly disturbing that Judge Lasnik admitted that the court has decided to not fully explore all the issues because of its limited record while presuming that we have a First Amendment right to disseminate the CAD files. Then he caps it off by saying that our First Amendment right is only abridged, but not abrogated. That’s like saying the government is only stepping on your neck, they haven’t completely crushed your windpipe.”
Gottlieb and 2nd Amendment Foundation spokesman Dave Workman are available for Talk Show interviews on this topic, as well as discussions of other pertinent 2nd Amendment news stories and legislation.
“If this case had to do with anything besides guns, we all know that the court would stop this nonsense in a heartbeat and we wouldn’t even be talking about it. But because this involves publishing information about guns, suddenly the First Amendment is being treated differently because the Second Amendment is involved,” concluded Alan Gottlieb.
