house Bill H.R. 1114

Modifying the Definition of "Antique Firearm"

Argument in favor

All Pre-World War One firearms should be considered collectibles, not weapons. People should be able to share their collections without fear of government intervention.

All cars 40 years or older are considered collectables and vehicles have the highest death rate of anything the general public can purchase.

The likelihood of an antique collectable being used in a violent crime is ridiculously low. This will make it easier to preserve and enjoy our cultural history.

Argument opposed

The bill would significantly increase the number of guns that could be owned without a permit or another form of registration. This would increase the chance of gun-related injury.

If the firearm works, it should be treated as a deadly weapon.

If it still capable of firing, it is a weapon, not an antique.
