They say the USA government has failed to study the national and state security implications of the decision and violated states' rights to regulate firearms.

But the judge countered, "There is a possibility of irreparable harm because of the way these guns can be made".

The company behind the plans, Austin, Texas-based Defense Distributed, had reached a settlement with the federal government in June that allows it to make the plans for the guns available for download on Wednesday.

State officials say they've stopped a company that makes 3D downloadable guns from making them internet-accessible in Pennsylvania and from uploading new files. "These detachable metal clips can often be easily removed before entering a security screening area and reattached again after to meet the law's requirement", his office said.

Grewal filed a lawsuit today seeking to prevent a firearms developer from publicly releasing computer files that would enable individuals to create untraceable firearms using a 3-D printer. Richard Blumenthal, D-Ct., display a photo of a plastic gun on Tuesday, July 31, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

In the meantime, congressional Democrats have urged President Trump to reverse the decision to let Defense Distributed publish the plans.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump raised concerns about the sale of plastic guns made with 3-D printers and said on Twitter he had talked with the powerful National Rifle Association lobbying group about the weapons.

Before the ruling, President Trump sent a tweet saying, "I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public".

The site features downloadable blueprints for a variety of firearms, including the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, the AR-10 battle rifle as well as the Liberator, a single-shot handgun. Ed Markey, D-Mass., called it the "ultimate gun loophole".

The State Department demanded Wilson take down his blueprints five years ago.

"It's his doing, it's his responsibility and the blood is going to be on his hands", said Sen.

The White House did not immediately return a request for additional comment.

"Many antigun politicians and members of the media have wrongly claimed that 3D printing technology will allow for the production and widespread proliferation of undetectable plastic firearms", said Chris Cox, the NRA's executive director for legislative action. The single-shot pistol was made nearly entirely out of ABS plastic - the same material Lego bricks are made from - and could be made on a 3-D printer.

Should the blueprints for 3D printed guns be legally available?

"There is no doubt that Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed have inspired countless Americans to exercise their fundamental, individual rights, including through home gunsmithing", it read. Under the settlement, the Trump administration will allow downloadable guns for unlimited public distribution in any form.
