The US government has blocked a Texas-based company from distributing details online of how to make a plastic gun using a 3-D printer.

 

 

 

The ban, by the State Department citing international arms control law, comes just days after the world’s first such gun was successfully fired.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Defense Distributed, the company that made the prototype, stated on Twitter that its project had “gone dark” at the instigation of the government.
