Cody Wilson, the owner of a Texas company that has been barred from posting 3D-printed gun blueprints online by a federal court, is already “selling the blueprints through his website” in defiance of the court order. The Associated Press reports that Wilson, owner of Defense Distributed, said in a Tuesday news conference that he will “make the plans available to anyone who wants them at any price.” Wilson started selling them Tuesday morning and claims he’s already received nearly 400 orders. “Anyone who wants to get these files is going to get them,” he said. “They can name their own price.” Wilson also said he will continue to challenge the court order. This comes after 19 states and Washington, D.C., sought a court injunction to stop the release of the gun blueprints, citing the “security risk” and the fact that “felons or terrorists” could obtain them. U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik granted the injunction Monday. Defense Distributed and the State Department had previously reached a settlement that allowed the company to release the blueprints.
