Blueprints for 3D-plastic gun remain freely available online despite State Department forcing the company behind the weapon to remove it from their site

Blueprints for how to build a 3D-plastic gun remain easily accessible via the internet, despite the U.S. State Department ordering the website which initially posted the plans to remove them.

On Thursday, Defense Distributed was forced to take the blueprints down from its site by the U.S. Department of State on the basis that they could violate possible arms trafficking violations.

But now the plans have been uploaded to torrent site Pirate Bay multiple times, and have already been downloaded from the site thousands of times.
