Loesch: 'Shameful' That Dem Officials Want to 'Fear-Monger' About 3D-Printed Guns
NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said Thursday that those arguing against 3D-printed guns don't quite have their facts straight.
A federal judge stopped the release Tuesday of blueprints to make the undetectable 3D guns, which had come from Texas nonprofit Defense Distributed.
Defense Distributed had previously reached a government settlement to make the blueprints available for download this week.
Loesch said that there is a lot of misinformation made public, and that lawmakers are failing to acknowledge the facts.
"It's pretty shameful that there are elected officials that are trying to exploit the lack of information and the lack of knowledge about this entire issue and fear-monger. That is exactly what this is," Loesch said on "Fox & Friends."
A number of prominent Democrats publicly opposed the potential release of the gun blueprints, including Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson.
"All of the plans that we're talking about actually follow the rule of law," she said. "There is no such thing as a legal, undetectable gun."
She said that in order to make a legal firearm, anyone creating one must ensure it contains specific amounts of metal, citing the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.
Loesch added that in order to obtain the proper printer and the required materials, it would cost a lot of money.
"It's very expensive, it's cost-prohibitive. Criminals are not going to go out and buy 3D-printing machines when they can get a boatload of firearms on the black market."
