Today OAG's Deputy AG of Public Safety Liz Wieser testified before @councilofdc about strategies to reduce gun violence in DC.

OAG prosecutes gun offenses aggressively, but we also invest in violence prevention strategies to stop gun violence before it starts.

@councilofdc #CuretheStreets is OAG’s violence interruption program which uses public-health strategies that treat violence like a disease that interrupt, treat and stop it from spreading.

With support from @councilofdc, we are extending Cure the Streets to four additional sites this fall.
@councilofdc OAG also just litigated its first successful #RedFlagLaw petition designed to keep guns away from potentially dangerous individuals.

These so-called “ghost guns” are as terrifying as they sound. They can pass through metal detectors undetected. They have no serial numbers, so law enforcement can’t trace them. And anyone can buy a 3D printer and make themselves a firearm with no background check at all.
For those naively saying there's no reason for concern about 3D printed guns because 3D printers are expensive - well, 3D printers once weighed hundreds of pounds & cost thousands, but today you can put one on your desk for less than 1k, and they're only getting cheaper.
The bottom line is that with new technology comes new responsibility. We cannot let innovation render our background check system or federal gun safety laws obsolete. #StopDownloadableGuns

We’re just days away from dangerous ghost gun blueprints being shared freely online & the admin has taken NO ACTION to protect our communities. Proud to join @SenBlumenthal & @SenBillNelson in unveiling the Untraceable Firearms Act. This bill must pass before it’s too late.
Families, survivors and advocates have been speaking out from coast to coast. Read @Alyssa_Milano’s op-ed on why 3D printed gun blueprints must not be made widely available today:…

#BREAKING We are suing the State Department to stop the illegal distribution of 3D-printed guns. This is an imminent threat to public safety and we have a responsibility to ensure these guns are never available online in any form.
Everyone needs to know how dangerous downloadable guns are.
For 3 years @StateDept fought to keep these plans off the internet

Then they reversed course

State AGs are picking up the fight to keep people safe. @AGOWA @AGBecerra @AGJepsen @AGKarlRacine @BrianFrosh @NewYorkStateAG @NewJerseyOAG @ORDOJ @PAAttorneyGen…

URGENT THREAD: A few days from now, *anyone* with a regular internet connection and a 3D printer will be able to make their own untraceable guns in just a couple clicks. This includes terrorists and people who can’t pass a background check.
Incomprehensibly, the Trump @StateDept is about to allow a company run by a self-proclaimed anarchist to post its gun blueprints online in files that can be sent directly to a 3D printer to print guns on demand.…
To add more danger to this situation, many of these guns can be printed entirely in plastic, so metal detectors won’t catch them. These plastic guns could easily be snuck onto airplanes, into music festivals and government buildings.
