The senator from the state of California has submitted her request through letters addressed to the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, Craiglist, Google, Reddit and Yahoo, as Feinstein has shared from the United States Senate website.
In the letter addressed to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the Democratic Party MP has requested that his company “take immediate measures to block or limit access to materials to print 3D weapons available online.”
Following the recent ruling of a federal judge that allowed the free dissemination of 3D weapons, the Defense Distributed company announced that it would publish on the Internet planes of firearms that it is possible to build using 3D printers.
These reproductions are shared through archives for computer-aided design (CAD) tools, which can be shared through the Web and social networks and found in Internet search engines.
In addition, this Thursday the US Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has warned that he will prosecute people who possess 3D weapons, as well as their production.
