The Right to Print Weapons is the Right to Be Free?

The federal government is trying to prevent CAD files for printable weapons from being displayed online. As Glenn Reynolds notes, they (the Clinton administration) tried to do this with cyptography.

Will they go SOPA on 3D printers by trying to cripple them and/or prevent the price from dropping?

Addendum 20130512: When I made this post, I was unaware that on 20130504162807, AR15 forum member grendelbane had written:
My new sig line may be, "The right to print weapons is the right to be free", with apologies to A. E. van Vogt.
The linked site does not assign addresses to individual posts, so click the link and search for Vogt.
