Federal courts in three states issued rulings Tuesday to block the release of downloadable blueprints for 3D-printed firearms.
Courts in New York, New Jersey and Washington issued the rulings ahead of the deadline at midnight Tuesday when Cody Wilson and his company, Defense Distribution, would have been permitted to publish the plans online.
“Today Cody Wilson committed to not publish any new printable gun codes nationwide until a court hearing in September,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said.
Wilson told USA Today the agreement maintained “the status quo,” by keeping existing files available, blocking New Jersey IP addresses and not posting any new files.
New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced on Twitter that the order would go into effect nationwide and described it as a “major victory for common sense and public safety.”
