Federal - S 1831

3D Gun Safety Act of 2019


June 13, 2019


This bill prohibits the distribution of 3D printer plans for the printing of firearms. Because 3D printing allows individuals to make their own firearms out of plastic, they may be able to evade detection by metal detectors at security checkpoints.
