liberatorWe’re getting word that the House of Representatives just passed HR 3626 to extend the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 for another ten years by a voice vote.

The bill was not changed from its original/current version in the House, however it is expected that anti-gun New York Senator Charles Schumer will offer amendments in the Senate to expand the bill.

Schumer may want to see the law expanded to make it even harder to use a 3D printer to produce a firearm or parts of a firearm.

This could certainly be a huge overstep as things such as 3D printed springs, boxes, tubes and other items could be called “gun parts” since they could obviously be used for those applications.

According to USA Today,

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., plans to offer an extension of the law with the provision included. Supporters say it will address concerns about 3-D printing technology, which can produce solid objects out of digital models and did not exist commercially when the law was first enacted.

The Undetectable Firearms Act, which was first passed in 1988, makes plastic guns, or any guns that are undetectable to a metal detector and other detection devices, illegal.

It looks like John McClane can breathe easy knowing that no more punks will be pulling Glock 7’s on him.
