Untraceable. Below the radar firearms. Ghost guns. No matter what you call them, the fact that they were built at home might make them soon be banned weapons.
The good news is that right now, it’s legal to make your own firearms at home. It doesn’t even need to be registered, and you don’t have to undergo a background check to participate in this time-honored hobby. However, privately made firearms do have to be made and owned by someone that is legally allowed to have one in their possession. They can’t have a criminal background record or history of mental health issues, but if either one of those situations don’t apply to you, feel free to make your own guns. It will be legal at least until the new Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021 is passed by Democrats in Congress. That’s the bad news.
The Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021
Anti-Second Amendment activists or gun control enthusiasts have been all in on making different types of firearms illegal for years now, even though their efforts are unconstitutional. One of the recent measures is with the Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021, which aims to ban homemade guns. The legislation is being spearheaded by Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island and Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.
This isn’t a new bill that’s trying to be passed, Rep. Cicillline introduced one like this back in 2019, but it didn’t go through. Now that the political climate has changed in Washington, D.C., it’s more likely to get passed by a Democrat led House, even though the Second Amendment of the Constitution clearly states that people can make and bear their own arms.
The Majority of Firearm Builders Aren’t Criminals
Plus, the majority of people who are building their own firearms as a hobby in their owns homes aren’t using them for criminal purposes, and are just crafting them for hunting, home defense, or shooting sports. Most hardened criminals don’t have the skills or patience to craft a homemade firearm. The current laws in place cover both on a federal and state level felons from owning any type of gun, manufactured or homemade. So the Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021 is a pretty useless endeavor, not to mention unconstitutional and violating law-abiding citizens rights.
Hopefully This Act Will Get Shot Down
Hopefully, Congress will make the right decision to not put this Act into place by allowing it to pass. They also don’t need to ban other types of weapons, like modern sport rifles (MSRs) that are legal under the Second Amendment. If you care about your rights, it’s easy to send a message to Congress via phone or email and specifically tell your Representative to vote down the Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021.
