Everytown for Gun Safety

The State Department is about to recklessly allow a company to post its gun blueprints online for anyone to download. That means people like terrorists, convicted felons, and domestic abusers will be able to print functional guns out of plastic that won't be detected by metal detectors. We only have UNTIL FRIDAY to STOP THIS

At the end of the week, anyone with a regular internet connection and access to a 3D printer will be legally allowed to make their own illegal and untraceable guns. That means anyone can download these files and print a functional, untraceable gun!
  • People who can't pass a background check, including terrorists, felons, and domestic abusers will be able to print their own functional guns.
  • Many of these guns can be printed entirely in plastic, so metal detectors won't detect them — putting our planes, music festivals, and government buildings in danger.
  • Law enforcement will not be able to trace any plastic guns recovered at crime scenes — stalling their criminal investigations before they even start.
These do-it-yourself downloadable guns are incredibly dangerous, and the State Department's appalling decision to allow a company to post its gun blueprints online can completely unravel the work we've done to create a safer America free from gun violence. We can't let this happen. Take action by sending the State Department your message RIGHT NOW, demanding that they stop the distribution of downloadable guns.
Thank you for fighting with me.
