Defense Distributed shutdown by Department of Defense

            FTCN has been extremely interested in the developments of Cody Wilson's DefDist, a company opensourcing data to print and distribute 3D printed guns.  After having success fired the first 3D printed handgun last weekend, and after the resultant 100,000+ downloads of the data, the Department of Defense has shut down the operation.  Below is the text now found on DefDist's website.

This file has been removed from public access at the request of the US Department of Defense Trade Controls. Until further notice, the United States government claims control of the information.
