From Alyssa Milano retweeted by David Hogg:
Here is the bipartisan, multi state letter @maura_healey sent today to @SecPompeo and @jeffsessions demanding an end to the dangerous 3D gun policy about to take effect. We are grateful to Maura and these 21 Attorneys General for their leadership. #NoRA pic.twitter.com/5LI2lqZFEv

Here is the letter:
I want too call your attention to a couple of sentences on the second page:
“allowing the distribution of the computer files at issue here is tantamount to permitting the dissemination of firearms themselves.”
Only a very well educated lawyer could be that fucking stupid.
“Here is a thumb drive with an STL file on it” is not the same thing as “here is an AR-15.”
Even if 3D printing lowers the barrier of entry to making guns at home (which is debatable) a CAD drawing is not a gun. There are still too many steps between downloading a file and having a working gun.
If their logic is upheld, you will have to go to a dealer and have a NICS check performed to download CAD files.
It’s sad and horrifying to watch state Attorney Generals have a collective temper tantrum over something they don’t understand.
