“Following a series of tests the US Department of Homeland Security ran last month, New York Congressman Steve Israel and other Democrats are reintroducing the Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act, which died in Congress back in 2013.

A major component of the reintroduced legislation is the requirement that “certain major components of guns are made of metal so they can be detected,” according to Rep. Israel.
