STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, AUG. 9, 2019....An individual who builds, sells or owns a 3D-printed gun in Massachusetts could run afoul of state law in six different ways, according to a notice Attorney General Maura Healey and other top law enforcement officials issued Thursday.

The public safety notice, Healey's office said, responds to a recent U.S. State Department settlement involving the online posting of 3D-printed gun blueprints and was issued jointly with the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, the Massachusetts Major City Chiefs of Police and the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association.
