Attorney General Jeff Sessions is promising to prosecute anyone who makes undetectable plastic firearms because of the "significant risk" they pose to the public.

Sessions remarked in a Department of Justice release that undetectable, 3D-printed guns have no place in the United States.

"Under federal law, it is illegal to manufacture or possess plastic firearms that are undetectable," Sessions said. "Violation of this law is punishable by up to five years in prison.

"Such firearms present a significant risk to public safety, and the Department of Justice will use every available tool to vigorously enforce this prohibition. We will work with federal, state and local law enforcement to identify any possible cases for prosecution."

Blueprints for making guns on a 3D printer were recently posted on the Internet, despite a federal judge's decision to block their release last month.

"We will not stand for the evasion, especially the flouting, of current law and will take action to ensure that individuals who violate the law by making plastic firearms and rendering them undetectable, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent," Sessions said.
