U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill, has announced her support of a bill to uphold a federal ban on firearms that are undetectable by metal detectors.
The Extend Undetectable Firearms Act extends for 10 years the ban on the manufacture, importation, sale, shipment, delivery, possession , transfer or receipt of firearms that are undetectable by metal detectors at security checkpoints. The bill passed the House with bipartisan support.
"When the public enters into buildings that are secured with metal detectors they rightfully expect to be protected from guns being introduced into that environment," Kelly said in a news release. "This law makes it harder for would-be criminals to secretly bring guns into these buildings."
