Steve Israel (D-LaLa Land) Wants To Ban Guns That Don’t Exist

I guess Israel is too scared to actually file legislation that attacks real guns

(Daily Caller) New York Democratic Rep. Steve Israel is calling for legislation to renew the federal ban on plastic guns, according to his official congressional website.

“Recent reports have pointed to the new possibility of building guns at home using a 3-D printer,” Israel’s website states. “Right now, plastic guns are illegal under the Undetectable Firearms Act, but this law is set to expire next year.”

The only problem is that these guns don’t actually, you know, exist.

Oh dear sweet Jesus!!!
And these people are able to get elected by a majority of people in their districts? And, there are hundreds of them serving, representing our nation, and being our voices.

There is no such thing as a plastic gun anyway. There is no way any gun can be crafted from plastic.

However, reality and reason are not part of LaLa land. But then, the reason of the people residing in those lands is already lost.

There was a fury about the Glock when it first came out as it has a plastic / polymer frame. People (wrongly) thought that the weapon would not be caught by a metal scanner.

According to US law the receiver of a gun is the gun. While it is the part that holds other parts in place, it is the gun. At least one person has printed a lower receiver for an AR-15. Technically, they have printed a “plastic gun.”

But right now, plastics cannot handle the pressures and overpressure needed for the barrels and chambers of guns.

Ten years ago 3-D printing was prohibitively expensive. The same is true now for 3D printing in metal. But just as the cost of 3D printing has dropped (basic printers start at around $150,) one wonders if people will be able to make a fully functional “printed” weapon at home in the near future.

Unfortunately, yes. Which says something about the people in those districts, and it’s not good.

They might be able to do it in the future, but, they’ll still need metal parts, and especially metal within the cartridges.

Well, what do you expect from people who also want to ban non-existent global warming?

But Nate, global warming is real. Just look at all the ice in the South Pole and the nasty wintry weather in Europe and the northern states.

Proof.
