In 2018, Connecticut joined a multi-state lawsuit against the Trump Administration’s prior attempt to allow the release of the 3D-printing files. A federal judge struck down the administration’s plans.
Last Friday, the Trump Administration published new rules that would transfer regulation of 3D-printed guns from the State Department to the Department of Commerce. Tong says those new rules allow the files to be distributed without limit.
