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.
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.
