2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill prohibits the sale and possession of a firearm, firearm receiver, or magazine that is manufactured or produced using additive manufacturing or three dimensional printing technology, computer numerical control mills, or a laser cutting machine, which is undetectable by metal detectors or x-ray machines used at airports. Under the provisions of the bill, it is a crime of the second degree to possess, sell, offer for sale, give, assign or otherwise transfer any such firearm or firearm component. A crime of the second degree is punishable by a fine of up to $150,000, a term of imprisonment of five to 10 years, or both. A person found guilty is subject to a mandatory minimum term of parole ineligibility for five years and would be ineligible for participation in any program of intensive supervision. Certain companies have developed the technology to produce plastic firearms and firearm components which can be manufactured by downloading computer blueprints that mold three-dimensional items from melted plastic. These undetectable firearms serve as a threat to the general public safety and to national security.
