Plastic Gun Ban Marches On

Posted on December 6, 2013 1:00 pm

So the House quietly renewed the plastic gun ban, a ban made to stop made up guns like the Glock 7 from Die Hard 2 (and was completely ineffective as plastic guns kept popping up in movies all the time).

Funnily enough, with 3D printers, plastic guns are finally becoming a reality, but I’m sure a ban will stop inevitable technological progress. Maybe they should have expanded the ban to mandate stickers on 3D printers that say, “Please don’t print a gun that can pass unnoticed through metal detectors.”

Anyway, let me reiterate a simple principle: If your safety is based on the idea of violent criminals not being able to get their hands on guns, you’re going to get shot a lot.

    Until you can make undetectable ammo and firing pins it’s a moot point anyway

    Plastic is always breaking. They need to be made out of Lexan@ or an eighty ton epoxy something. And if it’s made clear… they won’t even be able to see it.

    I see a bright future for the folks who work at the factory that makes the signs that say…”This is a Plastic Gun Free Zone.”
