3D printed guns cleared for download in the US

The United States Government on Friday cleared gun rights activists to post plans for 3D printable guns online from August 1. The feud between the two parties started in 2013 when a self-proclaimed 'post right anarchist', Cody Wilson uploaded plans for a 3-D printed handgun he called "The Liberator". The handgun was almost entirely made of ABS plastic. As part of the settlement reached, Wilson and Defense Distributed have been cleared to upload their plans, files, and 3-D drawings and have been exempted from the export restrictions. The government has also agreed to refund Wilson's legal fees to the tune of USD 40,000, along with some registration fees.
