Dem pushes to regulate homemade guns

A House Democrat is pushing legislation to regulate homemade guns.

Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) says his bill is necessary in large part because of the proliferation of 3-D printer technology, which allows virtually anyone to build a firearm in their own home.

Honda’s proposal would apply existing gun regulations, including criminal background checks, to all homemade firearms.

“The laws should be the same for the gun you buy and the gun you make,” Honda said. “Our system of background checks and registrations are in place to ensure public safety. There’s absolutely no reason these checks and registrations should apply to guns made by a licensed manufacturer, but not apply to other, equally dangerous, weapons.”
