Winning Issue » UNDETECTABLE FIREARMS


The Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 makes it illegal to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer or receive any firearm that is not detectable by walk-through metal detectors or airport x-ray machines. At the time this law was passed, concern was over the damage hijackers could do should they smuggle a ceramic weapon onboard an aircraft. However, with the advent of 3-dimensional printing technology, nearly undetectable plastic weapons can be constructed at home. The absence of a serial number or sales record makes these home-made firearms practically untraceable. Although not yet reliable, these guns could still pose a danger to air travel. 3D metal printing, using aluminum and titanium powder rather than plastic, is the next goal in developing this new manufacturing technology. Advocates say that 3D printing has the potential to render many gun laws obsolete, not to mention many gun manufacturers.


Pending Legislation:
H.R.377 - Homemade Firearms Accountability Act of 2015




Options


  • I oppose reforming current undetectable firearms policy and wish to defeat H.R.377 - Homemade Firearms Accountability Act of 2015, and also wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of either Rep. Paul Ryan or Sen. Mitch McConnell
  • I support requiring a person who desires to make a handgun to request a licensed firearms dealer to issue a serial number or identifying mark for such handgun; treating such request as a proposed transfer of the firearm from the dealer to the applicant for purposes of National Instant Criminal Background Check System provisions; prohibiting a person from: (1) making a firearm unless the person has obtained a serial number and identifying mark under this Act, or (2) possessing or transferring a firearm made by the person after 1968 (with exceptions) unless a serial number and identifying mark have been issued under this Act and are stamped on or otherwise permanently affixed to the firearm within 10 days after issuance. Requires any such firearm that is made from polymer plastic to be imbedded with 3.7 ounces of material type 17-4 PH stainless steel on which the serial number or identifying mark is permanently affixed, and wish to pass H.R.377, and also wish to donate resources to either the campaign committees of Rep. Robert Goodlatte (VA) and/or Rep. Mike Honda (CA), or to an advocate group currently working with this issue
