The government has reached an agreement with a gun rights activist allowing plans for 3-D printable guns to be posted online.
The agreement goes into effect Aug. 1.
The settlement comes as a result of a lawsuit filed by Cody Wilson, who posted plans for a 3-D printable gun back in 2013.
The government ordered him to remove it, arguing it violated arms trafficking regulations.
As a result of the settlement, Wilson can now post the plans online and it also exempts him from export restrictions.
