Here they go again trying to ban an inanimate object, thinking it will make us all safer. Of course, I don’t think they actually think it will make anyone safer. Anytime a politician says he’s concerned with our safety or security, you can bet that he’s lying. After all, his lips are moving. Breitbart reported:
On June 9, Congressional Democrats will propose an all-out ban on the manufacture of “entirely plastic guns.”
They claim “plastic guns can be even more dangerous than traditional firearms because they’re harder to detect.”
According to The Hill, the Democrats are making this push via the Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act. This act will require at least one “major component” of every plastic gun to be made of metal or contain enough metal that one cannot sneak it by an airport metal detector.
Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) previewed the legislation by saying, “lastic guns are real, they can be fired, they can kill someone, and there’s nothing we can do to stop them from going right through the airport security line because they are undetectable.” He then admitted that even detectable guns can escape detection at times.
He said, “If detectable weapons can make it through security checkpoints, how can we expect to catch wrongdoers carrying undetectable plastic firearms?”
Based on this admission, Israel also said America’s airport security needs to “modernize… so the American people can count on it.”
They’re “harder to detect,” huh? So that’s what this is all about. They’re not as easily tracked as the metal ones are.
I think one of the main dangers with these all-plastic, 3D-printed guns is that they can explode in your hand when they’re fired. But that’s not what these democrats are worried about. It’s that they won’t be able to detect that you have one.
It would seem that democrats would actually prefer plastic guns to metal ones, because they’re more dangerous for the person holding the gun compared with a regular firearm, and they can’t typically fire more than one round. That seems to be right up the anti-gun crowd’s alley.
