A judge in Seattle on Monday upheld a ban on publishing instructions to print 3D guns amid ongoing litigation challenging the practice.
U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik extended his previous ruling that barred Defense Distributed and its founder, Cody Wilson, from uploading directions to the internet for printing 3D guns.
The article goes on to state the following:
Wilson has argued he has a First Amendment right to publish the instructions.
But Lasnik wrote that the burdens on Wilson’s First Amendment rights “are dwarfed by the irreparable harms the States are likely to suffer if the existing restrictions are withdrawn and that, overall, the public interest strongly supports maintaining the status quo.”
