SB 1577 : Ban Undetectable and/or Untraceable Firearms

Position: Support Status: Senate Judiciary Committee

Three dimensional printing (also called additive manufacturing) allows criminals and terrorists to make firearms that do not have a serial number, thereby rendering a firearm untraceable to law enforcement. The process also allows criminals and terrorists to make firearms without mechanism (called a security exemplar), thereby rendering a firearm undetectable by metal detectors.
