House Votes To Renew Ban On Plastic Guns

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 49•49 Dec 4, 2013

The House of Representatives has voted to renew a longstanding ban on plastic firearms that don’t have enough metal to be detected by X-ray machines, though many have criticized the extension bill for not restricting 3D printing technology, which can produce plastic guns with removable metal parts. What do you think?
