    Facebook is blocking its users from sharing blueprints for making 3D-printed guns.

    The company announced it will remove all such content from its site, saying the information violates its community standards.

    Facebook already bans the sale or exchange of firearms on its site, except by licensed dealers.

    The announcement comes after a federal judge blocked a settlement that would have allowed a company, Defense Distributed, from publishing blueprints for 3D printing firearms.
