Plans for Ghost Guns on Internet?

Wednesday August 1, 2018 could have proven to be a landmark day in the gun debate. That’s when people were supposed to be able to start legally downloading blueprints for 3D-printable guns. The implications of this could be historic. Do-it-yourself firearms don’t have serial numbers and are untraceable. Supporters say the ability to build unregulated and untraceable guns makes it much harder, if not impossible, for governments to ban them. Others fear the technology will make it easier for terrorists and people who can’t pass background checks to get guns.  A Federal Judge blocked the release of the plans on the internet, but this issue is far from resolved.  Stay tuned for further developments.
