Below The Radar Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021

Warning Take Action Call Protest
Below the Radar: Making America Safe and Secure Act of 2019

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Anti-Second Amendment extremists have often tried to make various aspects of our Second Amendment rights seem downright scary to our fellow Americans. For instance in the 1990s, Senator Frank Lautenberg tried to push federal legislation that would have overridden the shall issue concealed carry laws on multiple occasions, using the term “concealed weapons.”

Today, anti-Second Amendment extremists are using terms like “ghost guns” and “untraceable firearms” to attack our rights. Two that are currently in Congress, Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are now trying to hype the fear to essentially ban home-built firearms with the Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021, known as S 1558 and HR 3088.

Cicilline introduced a version of this bill back in 2019, and we noted back then that part of the goal was to make it easier to carry out a “Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in” program of the type Feinstein wanted in 1995, or what Eric Swalwell has been pushing as well. One of the necessities for that to happen is to enact some form of firearms registration – what Nelson “Pete” Shields called “the second problem.”

Of course, let’s just be clear – this bill is another round of the usual injustice we see anti-Second Amendment extremists trying to inflict on law-abiding Americans who wish to exercise their right to keep and bear arms by building their own. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of those who are building their own firearms are doing so for lawful purposes, yet anti-Second Amendment extremists want to punish them for crimes and acts of madness they didn’t commit.

What Cicilline and Blumenthal – not to mention the media – fail to mention is that current laws can handle anyone who is home-building firearms for nefarious purposes. Under 18 USC 922, anyone who provides a firearm to a felon, illegal alien, or other prohibited persons is guilty of a felony. 18 USC 924 provides for a potential 10-year prison sentence in those cases and adds other penalties for transferring a firearm knowing it will be used for a violent crime or drug trafficking, not to mention sentencing enhancements for when firearms are brandished or discharged.

Second Amendment supporters certainly should work to ensure that the categories of prohibited persons are not excessive, and how to pare them down can be discussed at a later time. But the fact remains, current laws can address the misuse of home-built firearms while proving anti-Second extremists are liars. Using those laws, through efforts like Project Exile and Project Guardian in conjunction with explaining this situation to our fellow Americans could help us not only turn back this assault on our rights, but to turn back others as well (like bans on modern multi-purpose semiautomatics).

When it comes right down to it, the Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021 is one that should be easy to defeat. Second Amendment supporters should contact their Senators and Representative and politely urge them to oppose HR 3088 and S 1558, and to instead support efforts like Project Exile and Project Guardian. They should also support NRA-ILA and NRA-PVF to ensure that the House, Senate, state legislatures, governor’s mansions, and the White House are not controlled by anti-Second Amendment extremists.

Not “Anti-Second Amendment extremists,” but open traitors destroying your rights and earning their immediate executions.

Language matters, Harold.

Here we go again, passing laws to prevent things that don’t exist. Since we’re going to Mars in a few years, I suppose we need to pass laws to protect astronauts from being attacked by Martians.

LOL! And I bet those martians will say “Oh, it’s against the law to eat humans! Let’s go eat some other invaders.” I wonder if lions and tigers pay attention to their laws too.

Can you even write a single article without plugging the NrA, the org that consistently negotiated Our rights away and supported every single gun bill passed?

I remember local Sheriffs opposing background checks when Colorado implemented universal checks. They said checks deny constitutionally protected rights that precede government and that is why they are Constitutional Sheriffs, because they understand clearly written plain English text to be what it says. The Police and Mr. Fed are an entirely different situation. And, I remember the Colorado Supreme Court lightly berating the attorneys and plaintiffs in the Colorado mag ban case for not bringing a 2A case but rather only bringing a Colorado Constitutional case which allowed the court to easily side with the police state being imposed by… Read more »

The Second Amendment is clear. The federal government has gone rouge. The ATF is operating outside the law. Congress bears great responsibility for this as does the Judiciary. I see nothing short of a Patriots revolution that among other things would restore constitutional law to the government. But thats unlikely to happen. Every civil servant takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution, Yet by the very nature of the way ATF is run that oath is consistantly violated. Every gun grabber in congress violates their oath. The. ATF director violates his oath. Yet they are not held accountable.… Read more »

Yes, they are open traitors who have demanded their own executions. Nothing short of meeting their demands will begin to address the current problems.

Maybe someone will take a close look at what Jim Bell had to say in his essay that was not so widely loved by those in the government. Do a search and read what he suggested. I KNOW it would work.

I was at the “Red Pill Expo” in Rapid City South Dakota on the 5th and 6th of this month. At that expo was one of the two sheriff’s who had bucked the Brady Bill and won their case. His name is Richard Mack and he heads up the CSPOA which is the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. I have all of his books and he is RIGHT ON. I and another person sent our sheriff to one of his seminars. And he came back and said he learned more about the Constitution in three days then he had… Read more »
