Congressman Maxwell Frost on Wednesday introduced the Destroy Zombie Guns Act, a new bill designed to close the loophole that allows gun disposal companies to only destroy one part of a gun that has been retired, seized, or surrendered, before reselling the remaining parts as a kit. Frost calls these weapons “zombie guns.” “It’s a gun that should not be living, it shouldn’t be able to operate, it shouldn’t be in use, and it shouldn’t be able to harm or claim another life – but it does,” Frost said during a press conference in Washington D.C. In a lot of cases, Frost explained, purchasers are able to buy the firearm without going through basic requirements, such as a background check. “The whole thing is undoubtedly contributing to the gun violence we are seeing in our communities today,” he added. Frost’s Destroy Zombie Guns Act would require gun disposal companies to destroy seized or retired weapons, no longer permitting them to resell the pieces. “I refuse to see another life taken or another family devastated because of gun violence. We need to destroy zombie guns now,” Frost said. The Destroy Zombie Guns Act has been endorsed by March for Our Lives, Everytown, and Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. 🖊️: @gcbalido 📸: N/A
