As reported by the American-Statesman’s Chuck Lindell the Austin man behind the fight for guns made on 3D printers, Cody Wilson, announced that his company has begun selling firearm blueprints. Cody Wilson said a federal judge’s recent order to block access to the files applied only to free downloads from his company’s website.

Robert Parker: Well played, Cody. Can’t stop the signal.
Jeremy Swanson: They’re free, and they’re all over the internet. This court block is pure symbolism.
