Senator Pushes Extension of Ban on ‘Undetectable Firearms’

According to the Guardian, Chuck Schumer, the Democratic senator from New York, wishes to extend a “federal law that [bans]…undetectable guns.”  The law is set to expire on the 9th of December.  Senator Schumer says that “anyone with $1,000 and an internet connection can access…plastic parts that can be fitted into a gun.  [These] firearms cannot be [uncovered] by metal detectors or x-ray machines.”  Senator Schumer is not alone in his concern.  Senators Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Bill Nelson of Florida have also announced their wish for the law to be extended.  As Senator Schumer said during the announcement: “3D printers are a miraculous technology that have the potential to revolutionize manufacturing, but we need to make sure they are not being used to make deadly, undetectable weapons.”
