Last Thursday, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence stepped into a notable legal battle between Defense Distributed, a group that promotes gunsmithery via 3D printing, and the State Department, which aims to halt re-publication of the relevant CAD files.  (serving the CAD community since 2003)

I've been following this legal nightmare since the beginning, and I'm actually quite surprised there isn't a movie yet. Like the article says, at worst a hefty fine will be imposed. It's already on the internet and numerous revisions have already occurred making it stronger and longer lasting since DD pulled the CAD files offline.
