"I only had a couple of seconds to take a picture of it with my cell phone."
A new bill being circulated for co-sponsors in Delaware would make any person in possession of a firearm that is undetectable by a metal detector a felon.
The bill, which has not been posted online, was leaked by State Rep. Jeffery Spiegelman (R) via a phone picture.
Posted from thetruthaboutguns.com, Spiegelman writes, First, let me apologize for the poor quality. This bill (137) was circulated today for cosponsors and I only had a couple of seconds to take a picture of it with my cell phone. In other words, it is not even online for public viewing yet. Here are my initial thoughts . . .
Spiegelman brings some very interesting points. He writes:
-How do you enforce this if 3D printers are legal, the computer file needed for the 3d printer is legal, and neither are traceable?
-Why does the bill mention parts that are not part of the legal definition of a firearm (in other words, by the letter of this law, after the mentioned parts are removed, the gun could still retain metal sights or other parts and be legal or illegal? If the whole firearm is plastic for a metallic serial number plate, is that illegal?)
-Is the plastic magazine and similar parts illegal or only illegal when attached to a legally defined firearm?
-Is there an official hand held metal detector setting? Commercial metal detectors can detect the iron content of a persons blood.
-What is undetectable ammunition?
-What is an undetectable magazine?
-Will existing firearms/parts be grandfathered? How would it be known if they are pre or post ban if printed firearms and parts are not dated?
Political power grows out of the nozzle of a 3-D Printer.
Amazing how many secret laws we are getting.
Wow a perfectly worthless plastic gun spray painted aluminum.
That’s not plastic. It’s stainless steel through and through.
It looks like plastic parts sitting on a block of aluminum. The 3-D printers create plastic parts.
“...Amazing how many secret laws we are getting....”
This guy has an R after his name, and he wants to make you a FELON for being able to print one of these.
He should thrown out of office.
There are 3-D printers that print in metal, carbon fiber, cement, bone, human tissue, etc., etc. Search the keyword “3DPRINTER” here and be amazed.
Re-read the article. This (R) legislator posted this proposed “secret” law after he took a picture of it with his cell phone - he does not support it.
He’s the guy that uncovered the secret and took a photo with his cellphone, I believe.
It’s all “plastic” or whatever synthetic?
What he said.
Isn’t there already a federal law against making non metallic firearms?
Reading comprehension not one of your stronger areas?
There is no “secret law” here. Proposed legislation is always passed around prior to printing when the primary sponsor is seeking co sponsors.
This hasn’t even been introduced yet - it is just a proposal.
DelMarVa Ping (comment here or FReepmail me if wanting on or off) -— I thought McDowell was long gone from the Delaware Senate..............Sheesh. OTOH, if this is still the same McDowell I knew in my years at Leg Hall - he may very well be proposing this to prove a point, he was well known for things like that.
US Senator Schumer calls for legislation to make 3D printed guns illegal
“..Reading comprehension not one of your stronger areas?...”
A couple of shots of JD will do that to me. Been a very long day.
That one is steel.
I jumped all over this guy though, and I was wrong about it. Misread it.
I’ve had a few drinks and things aren;t registering well..
Yes, but the article is talking about guns made of NON-METAL material.
Yeah. The metal gun is one of my stock 3-D printer images. So sue me...
I wonder if sintered metal is strong enough for a handgun?
The technology is laser sintered metal powder. It is out of reach of most of us.
Spiegelman is a strong 2nd Amendment supporter and consistently votes against the anti-gun hysteria that oozes out of our General Assembly in Dover. This is a Democrat bill and since both the House and Senate are overwhelmingly Democrat, this ‘proposal’ will probably pass and be put into the books by our left wing administration. We are fast becoming New Jersey, Jr as our nanny legislators outdo each other to put us under their thumbs.
How serious is a Class G felony? And how much is the state regime budgeting for new prisons, hiring new guards, making up for lost revenue, etc.?
Umm, aren’t all guns 3-D?
It is becoming increasingly difficult, nay, impossible to live in freedom in the northeastern states.
Not all printers create plastic parts. There are several methods to produce metal parts with 3D printers.
