During the Tuesday hearing in Seattle, Eric Soskin, a lawyer for the U.S. Justice Department, said they reached the settlement to allow Defense Distributed to post the material online because the regulations were created to restrict weapons that could be used in war, and the online guns were no different from the weapons that could be bought in a store.

The settlement ends a multiyear legal battle that started when Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson posted designs for a 3-D printed handgun he called "The Liberator" in 2013.
Attempts to post 3-D gun blue prints online have been blocked by a judge in Washington. "Already spoke to NRA, doesn't seem to make much sense".

But in the past three days, more than 2,500 people have downloaded Wilson's blueprints for 3D-printed AR-15 style assault rifles.
These basic guns can be made by anyone who owns a 3D printer, which uses plastic or other materials to build up an object layer by layer.
Criminals in the comfort of their own homes could fire up their computer, download a file and use a printer to make a gun.
