New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said yesterday that a federal judge’s decision to temporarily block a Texas company from posting computer files that let people make guns with a 3D printer is a big win for public safety.

The so-called ghost guns can’t be traced by law enforcement.

Grewal said if the state finds other websites that offer 3D blueprints that can be used to manufacture guns he’ll take them down.

He said he’ll do everything in his power to keep the untraceable firearms out of the hands of terrorists and criminals. He agrees with President Donald Trump’s tweet that allowing the public to have access to 3D guns doesn’t make sense.

Legal arguments will be heard next week in the federal case on whether an injunction is needed.
