So-called Ghost Gun, from a 3D printer
From Rep. Javier Valdez, D-46, end of session report

Gun violence in America is a public health crisis. Thoughts and prayers aren’t enough to solve the problem.

It’s time for elected officials to step forward and lead on this issue. That’s why I was proud to sponsor an important gun safety bill that was signed into law by Governor Inslee on May 7, 2019.

HB 1739 attempts to get out ahead of a potential major public safety concern before advances in technology lead us down a path of no return. This bill bans the manufacture, sale, and possession of 3D-printed “ghost guns.”

3D printers are becoming more advanced and more available to everyday consumers. These undetectable guns pose enormous threats to public safety. This is one of those issues that requires lawmakers to be proactive before it’s too late.
