house Bill H.R. 1266

Should Purchases of Untraceable, Homemade 'Ghost Guns' be Subject to Federal Background Checks?

Argument in favor

Untraceable guns pose a serious safety threat to communities, as they are more likely than registered guns to be used in violent crimes. Subjecting gun parts and kits’ sales to federal background checks will make these sales traceable and therefore safer for communities.

The only absolutely essential part of any firearm is the barrel because that is the part that contains the fired projectile, contains the pressure developed to force the projectile to gain it’s exit speed, and guides the bullet in the direction of the target. It would be much simpler to require any ‘barrel’ or part that includes a ‘barrel’ to be considered a gun and have great same regulations and restrictions as any like firearm. There are too many ‘whereas’ and ‘what for’ details in too much legislation that only leaves too many loopholes. Keep it simple by going to the heart of the matter and make it difficult to find loopholes.

Yes why ask a question like that all guns should require background checks weather bought or made

Argument opposed

There is already a federal law that bars the manufacture, sale, or possession of an undetectable firearm. Ghost guns, which fall under this definition, should be regulated under that existing law, rather than under a new law that may be difficult, if not impossible, to enforce.

Folks, we have our Constitution, the law of the land. If you want to change it, then propose an amendment, until then, get off the backs of us law-abiding citizens. How about doing something about the mass murders going on in our major (Democrat controlled) cities!? To difficult!? You’d rather go after us and pretend that you “did something!?”

If you can afford this devise, you are smart and intelligent enough to build your own weapon. Because you are not going to sell it or use it for a negative reason.

Is this actually a problem? Or are lefties just trying to push more gun legislation any way they can.

    If anyone makes a firearm from scratch then they become a manufacturer. I am 💯 % NRA 💯 2nd amendment and from a country with massive gun restrictions, but I could by a gun on the street within 30 minutes. So if you manufacture a firearm without a serial ## then you are 💯 illegal.

    Untraceable firearms should be illegal. Evidence clearly shows that more guns = more Americans dead, mainly innocents. This rampant and unregulated arming of America must stop.

    All guns (or at minimum lower receivers) should be registered.

    You think 🤔. This is as close we are to an invisible weapon; but it fires visible bullets. Some Legislation doesn’t take but 1 sheet of paper.

    My question would be, statistically speaking, how many crimes are committed using these weapons and if they are untraceable, how many arrests were made? Again, drug laws are tough and many want to reduce laws on drug arrests. What makes anyone think this would have any impact whatsoever?

    Yes, but good fuc#ing luck with that, they can be frigging printed on any 3D printer. The persons who put these plans in the internet should be responsible for the killings perpetrated by users of those untraceable guns.

    What kind of question is this. Mass shootings everyday in this country, more children killed this year than soldiers deployed killed and this question comes up. Don’t we have enough guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them?? What is wrong with the people who don’t follow the law now to do background checks & report people who should not have any weapon. # 1. No ghost guns at all. - if they are allowed which is ridiculous, owners must have background checks. This is ridiculous.
