Murphy, Blumenthal, Colleagues Introduce Bill to Block Trump Admin Push to Allow Unfettered Proliferation of Untraceable, 3D Printable Guns, Weaken Controls Over Foreign Arms Sales
Earlier this week, U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) joined legislation led by Ranking Member U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and colleagues U.S. Senators Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) yesterday in introducing legislation to block the Trump administration’s efforts to weaken controls over foreign arms sales and allow for the unfettered proliferation of untraceable, virtually undetectable, 3D printable guns that threaten public safety. The Trump administration announced earlier this month that it has taken steps to transfer control of the export of semi-automatic pistols, assault-style rifles, sniper rifles and ammunition from the United States Munition List under the authority of the Department of State to the less-stringent controls of the Department of Commerce. It would also transfer the control of the technical information and blueprints for 3D printing of nearly undetectable firearms to Commerce, where the lax regulations will facilitate the Internet publication worldwide. The senators argue these moves are designed to strangle congressional oversight.
