Skip to comments.House reauthorizes ban on undetectable, plastic guns
Posted on 12/03/2013 11:58:46 AM PST by rktman
A bipartisan majority in the House voted to extend a bill banning plastic guns or other guns that would not be detectable in a metal detector or x-ray machine on Tuesday.
The Undetectable Firearms Act, first passed in 1988 and renewed since, is set to expire on December 9. The act prohibits the manufacture, sale, or possession of firearms that do not contain enough metal to render them detectable by metal detectors and hence could be brought into airports or other secure places.
The bill required a two-thirds majority to pass, and it passed easily by voice vote.

Our government is so incredibly stupid. My God, how the Founders would be ashamed of us.
Wad up aluminum foil, stuff it into the magazine well, and ta-da!
They are going to enforce this how?
RINO Quisling traitors. May you rot in Hell.
Can they name one ?
This is just “feel-good” legislation.
And it’s “feel-good” legislation that has no real impact to the gun-owner.
Meanwhile, the drooling, foaming hoplophobes, like upChuck Schemer can go orgastic thinking they’ve actually had an effect on anything.
I see it as a win-win.
We lose nothing, they gain nothing, but they think they made a gain, because they’re too stupid to know the difference.
Notice it was a voice vote, can’t be traced. Bastards
The same way they regulate imaginary ones
“...the right to bear arms shall not be infringed...”
Why is it that every time I try to follow a liberal position, my brain starts to hurt?
What's up next? Perhaps a bill banning phasers, photon torpedoes and disruptors.
Glad I already ordered a phaser for Christmas. And I ain’t setting it on stun either.
Too late! The blueprints are OUT. Cowards.
Whats to worry about?
Im sure the Criminals will follow this law like they do with all others.
I can just envision a gathering of al qaeda terrorists lamenting that itll be against the law for them to use such weapons and cursing that they now will have to make other plans
Well, I’m normally very pro-2nd Amendment, but I can see the House reacting to the situation where John Malkovich tried to shoot President Jim Curley with that porcelain gun, only to have heroic secret service agent Clint Eastwood jump in front of the bullet.
No, wait...that’s still not real.
Well, this one is actually incredibly easy to enforce, because plastic, undetectable firearms don’t exist, and nobody has any clue how to make them exist.
DefCad Liberator. Ammo is still metallic, but that won’t slow Chuck Schumer et al down one iota.
Yeah, you go ahead and try to print that entirely out of plastic and shoot it. I’ll stand waaaaay over here.
Thank goodness they didn’t ban the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator!
Actually, it works fine. .380 is a really low power cartridge.
I even have the plans for the .22lr version.
I’ll let you know how it works out...
