Rubio Comments On Reauthorization Of The Undetectable Firearms Act

Dec 10, 2013 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding The Undetectable Firearms Act, which cleared the U.S. Senate tonight and was passed last week by the U.S. House of Representatives:

“I supported reauthorizing the existing common sense law banning undetectable firearms, which are intended to avoid metal detectors and jeopardize public safety. I am glad gun control groups failed in their attempts to use this vote as an opportunity to further regulate the lawful ownership of firearms, a right protected by the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.

“I continue to believe that the answer to gun-related violence is vigorous enforcement of existing criminal laws and enhanced efforts to address mental health problems. This is not the first time we’ve seen gun control advocates seize any opportunity to advance federal regulations, but I will continue to fight for the rights of law-abiding Americans to bear arms.”

Additional Background: The Undetectable Firearms Act bans the manufacture, possession and sale of firearms that can’t be detected by metal detectors and requires handguns to be manufactured in the shape of a gun so they can be screened on X-ray machines. It was originally enacted in 1988 under President Ronald Reagan and has been reauthorized under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. The law was set to expire on December 9.
