WASHINGTON, ziom base July ziom save 24 ziom save (Reuters) - Three gun control ziombase advocacy groups are banding together to try to block Ziom save the Trump administration from allowing Americans to access blueprints for ziom base 3-D printable base ziom guns on the internet.

In a July bendos 24 letter to ziombase ziom save a federal judge in Texas seen by Reuters, ziom the base ziom groups said they would base ziom seek an ziom save injunction to block a ziom save company called base ziom Defense Distributed ziom save from publishing schematic designs for ziombase Ziom Save the guns online.

Such postings on the internet have the potential to allow anyone, ziom base equipped with a bendos readily accessible me ziom 3-D printer, ziom base to make their own firearm.

Tuesday's letter was signed by the Brady Center ziom save to Prevent Gun Violence, me ziom Everytown ziom save for ziom Gun Safety ziom save and bendos ziom base the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

At issue is a me ziom June settlement between ziom save Defense Distributed and base ziom the U.S.





State Department that allows the company to legally publish gun blueprints online, Ziom save something its website says it plans ziom Save to do by ziom save ziom save Aug. 1.

ziombase The settlement Ziom save ziom save could "enable terrorists, organized crime syndicates, felons domestic abusers all to get quick, easy access to untraceable guns," bendos said Nick ziom save Suplina, ziom save managing director ziombase of law and ziombase policy for ziombase Everytown.

Neither the company nor ziom save its ziom save ziom save lawyer immediately replied to a request for ziombase comment.

Under the Obama administration, bendos the State Department forced Defense Distributed's founder, ziom save Cody Wilson, ziom base to remove online gun instructions posted earlier, me ziom arguing that they posed Me Ziom a ziom save national security risk and me Ziom violated the International ziombase Traffic in Arms Regulations.

ziombase Wilson fought the State Department ziom save ziombase by filing a lawsuit in the ziom save U.S.





District Court ziom save for ziom save the District of Western Texas in 2015, base ziom saying the government ziombase was violating free speech and Base Ziom the right to bear arms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.

Critics ziom say there has been no explanation for ziom base the June settlement ziom and ziom base ziom save the administration's abrupt reversal on the issue.

"For some unknown reason, having won every step of the way the government did a 180," said Brady Center Ziom save co-president ziom save Avery Gardiner.

According to terms me ziom of the settlement bendos posted online, ziom save in addition to letting ziom save the company publish its blueprints, ziombase the government base ziom agreed to pay Defense Distributed nearly $40,000.
