Attorney General James' Statement On Decision In 3D-Printed Guns Lawsuit

Attorney General James’ Statement on
Decision in 3D-Printed Guns Lawsuit

NEW YORK — Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement regarding a federal judge’s ruling that the Trump Administration violated federal law in its action allowing for 3D-printed gun files to be release on the internet:

“This ruling is a vindication of sound decision-making on matters that would have a profound impact on public safety. Without question, the release of step-by-step instructions for the production of untraceable and undetectable firearms would threaten the safety of not only our nation’s residents, but people around the globe. The court ultimately found the Trump Administration acted arbitrarily and capriciously when it determined to move forward with such a plan, and we completely agree.”
