WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Ruben J. Kihuen introduced the Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act, legislation which would strengthen current federal law designed to prevent the production of plastic firearms that can be carried through a metal detector and into secure areas undetected. Representative Kihuen issued the following statement on the introduction of the bill:

"Security checkpoints are a critical line of defense, helping protect our most secure areas from the threats posed by criminals and terrorists. The Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act would make modest tweaks to current law to protect the safety of all Americans while allowing for continued technological advances in firearms production. We need to be making it harder for terrorists and criminals to acquire dangerous weapons that can pass through security checkpoints undetected, and enacting these meaningful reforms will be a big step in the right direction.”
