Everytown for Gun Safety Applauds State of New Jersey for Working to Prevent Reckless Release of Designs for Downloadable, Untraceable Guns

WASHINGTON – Everytown for Gun Safety, the country’s largest gun violence prevention organization, today applauded the state of New Jersey for issuing a cease-and-desist letter informing Defense Distributed, a company run by a self-proclaimed anarchist who wants to undermine gun safety laws, that it would take legal action within days unless the company halts its efforts to publish designs for downloaded, untraceable firearms.

STATEMENT FROM NICK SUPLINA, MANAGING DIRECTOR FOR LAW AND POLICY FOR EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:

“Publishing these designs would make it easy for anyone with an internet connection and a 3D printer to make untraceable guns in just a couple clicks – including guns printed entirely in plastic that metal detectors can’t catch. The implications for public safety are clear and grave, and we’re grateful to New Jersey’s Attorney General Grewal and Governor Murphy for taking action to protect Americans from this reckless prospect.”
