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.

“Just more evidence that congress is in the pocket of Big 3D.”
