The owner of a Texas company called Defense Distributed has created blueprints for people to 3D-print guns. On Tuesday, Defense Distributed owner, Cody Wilson began selling the blueprints through his website despite the federal court order on Monday that banned the company from posting the plans online.
Wilson said at a news conference that he started selling the plans Tuesday morning, and currently has over 400 orders. He claimed he found a loophole to Monday’s federal court order. Instead of posting blueprints online to be downloaded for free, Wilson sells the blueprints to customers, letting them set their own price. From there, he saves the blueprints to an external drive and sends it to the buyer for approval via standard mail, email or by another secure transfer channel. In addition to USD, Wilson also permits payment in cryptocurrency.
