Richmond, Va (wrva.com) - Attorney General Mark Herring (D) has signed onto a letter, along with several other attorneys general, asking the Trump Administration to withdraw from a settlement that would allow a company to put plans for 3D guns online.  Herring calls the release of such plans unsafe, and would allow prohibited people much easier access to firearms.

Herring also says the plastic guns, made by 3D printers, would be incredibly difficult to detect.  The Democrat, who favors additional gun control, says anyone with a 3D printer would be able to make a gun if the plans were released.  

The company involved was ordered five years ago to remove the files from their website.
