In a tragic sign of bi-partisanship, Congress is on the verge of passing a 10-year extension to the Undetectable Firearms Act that bans all plastic guns that cannot be detected by a metal detector.
The gun controllers argue about the criminals getting their hands on weapons that cannot be detected and sneaking them into places that they could do damage with.
The only problem with this “logic” is that with the advent of 3-D printers and the technology improving in that regard, criminals will just ignore this law too.
Do I want an all plastic gun that is undetectable? To be honest, until I started writing this article I would say no, and that I was only arguing on principle that to infringe upon the manufacturing and owning of plastic undetectable weapons was a violation of the 2nd Amendment.
But the more I think about it, with instances of gun confiscation that we have bore witness to during Hurricane Katrina and now in New York City the idea of having a few undetectable firearms hidden in the walls when the government comes and tries to take the metal ones isn’t the worst idea.
With the direction the technology is heading in over the next decade an improved handgun and perfected rifle made fully of undetectable plastic is an eventuality. This law though, will do nothing to actually stop criminals from obtaining these weapons but rather, will once again exploit the law abiding and keep them at the mercy of the government that hangs over their liberty like the Sword of Damocles.
