House Approves 10-Year Extension On Plastic Gun Ban

Congress voted to extend the 25-year-old prohibition against firearms that can evade metal detectors and X-ray machines, just days before the ban would have expired. Spurred on by the recent advances in 3-D printing techniques, some Democrats, gun control advocates and law enforcement officials believe the restrictions must also be tightened.

The Republican-led House approved the 10-year extension of the ban on Tuesday. Democrats’ preference would have been to also require permanent metal components that would make plastic firearms more detectable.

“We can’t let a minute or hour or day go by without having a renewal” of the ban, said Brian Malte, a director of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

The Democratic-run Senate returns from a two-week Thanksgiving break next Monday, the day before the ban expires. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he will seek fast approval of a measure renewing the ban and tightening the restrictions.
