California bill seeks to regulate homemade guns

A state lawmaker proposed Monday that California extend its requirement that gun buyers undergo background checks and register their weapons to anyone who assembles a firearm in their home.

Kevin de Leon where he unveiled legislation dealing with so called “ghost guns,” at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, Jan. 13, 2014. Under de Leon’s proposed legislation, SB808 would allow the manufacture or assembly of homemade weapons, but require the makers to first apply to the state Department of Justice for a serial number that would be given only after the applicants undergo a background check. De Leon plans to amend the bill to also require that guns contain permanent pieces of metal that could be detected by X-ray machines and metal detectors. .
