Keep Americans Safe Act
This bill amends the federal criminal code to make it a crime to knowingly transfer, possess, import, or bring into the United States a large capacity ammunition feeding device (LCAFD).
It permits the continued possession of a grandfathered LCAFD.
Additionally, the bill does not prohibit, with respect to an LCAFD:
- manufacture, transfer, or possession related to certain law enforcement efforts, or authorized tests or experiments;
- transfer or possession related to securing nuclear materials; and
- possession by a retired law enforcement officer.
A violator is subject to criminal penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 10 years, or both.
Newly manufactured LCAFDs must display serial number identification that clearly shows the device was manufactured after this bill's enactment.
