(NEWSER) – When a company run by a Texas law student posted blueprints online this week for a 3D-printed gun, it logged more than 100,000 downloads in its first two days. Now, the State Department also has taken notice of the gambit by Cody Wilson at Defense Distributed, reports Forbes. It ordered the blueprints for the "Liberator" taken down, and Wilson is complying. The feds are investigating whether the blueprints violate arms-trafficking laws.
