OLYMPIA — Attorney General Ferguson today issued the following statement regarding the temporary restraining order granted in the 3D printed guns case:

“Once again, my office had to hold this Administration accountable to the rule of law. I am thankful and relieved Judge Lasnik put a nationwide stop to the Trump Administration’s dangerous decision to allow downloadable, 3D-printed ghost guns to be distributed online. These ghost guns are untraceable, virtually undetectable and, without today’s victory, available to any felon, domestic abuser or terrorist. I hope the President does the right thing and directs his administration to change course.”
