Among the thousands of firearms discovered at airport security checkpoints around the country in the past two years, a handful were created with a 3D printer. The TSA told CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave there have been at least four incidents at checkpoints involvingor parts of guns since 2016.
The statistic from the agency comes amid a court battle over downloading. On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered a gun-rights organization to temporarily stop making such blueprints available.
The fight stems from eight Democratic attorneys general seeking to block a settlement the Trump administration reached with Texas-based Defense Distributed over the blueprints. The company made the blueprints available online Friday.
