To reauthorize the ban on undetectable firearms, and to extend the ban to undetectable firearm receivers and undetectable ammunition magazines.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ``Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act''.
SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
The Congress finds that-- (1) according to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 8,583 of the 12,664 murders in the United States in 2011 were committed using a firearm, and more than 57 percent of the murders that occurred in New York State were perpetrated with a firearm; (2) the ability to produce a receiver for a firearm in the home would circumvent a number of laws, because the receiver is the component of the firearm that bears its serial number, as required by regulations; (3) digital manufacturing technologies, including but not limited to computer numerical control mills (``CNC mills''), 3- dimensional printers (``3D printers''), and laser cutting machines, are quickly advancing to a point where it will soon be possible to fabricate fully operational firearm components; and (4) some commercially available products that utilize digital manufacturing technologies to manufacture objects are able to manufacture these objects using materials that are unable to be detected by traditional metal detectors, and may not present an accurate image on an x-ray.
