Ferguson said in a statement. Gun rights advocates say fears about 3-D printed guns are largely overblown, based on current technology.

And ARS Technica quoted Ferguson speaking about online gun files, saying, "After nearly 18 months I was skeptical that there was anything else that this administration would do that would truly shock me, but they have".
Its files include 3-D printable blueprints for a plastic AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle, a version of a weapon that has been used in many USA mass shootings, as well as other firearms. That in theory could have been the end of it, and the federal government moved to dismiss the lawsuit in April.
