Q: Why Would Anyone Want a Plastic Gun That is Virtually Undetectable

He Made One - for a Movie Role

Who Needs One???


Story from here - not the silly/nearly insane aspect of the law that got extended for 10 more years, but the power of the NRA and scaredy cats serving in government, running scared of the NRA (their statement on the bills extension is here).

To make matters worse, there was only a voice “vote” (if we can call it a vote) on the extension. That is, there was no recorded roll call vote to show us how our representative voted. I guess we call that narrow Democracy at work? Here is what my research turned up as I tried to find out the voting records on the law extension:

H.R. 3626 – extending the law for 10 more years. “H.R.3626 - To extend the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 for 10 years” 

THE BILL

Sponsor:
Rep. Coble, Howard [R-NC-6] (Introduced 12/02/2013)
Cosponsors:
2
Latest Action:
12/03/2013 On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill Agreed to by voice vote.
Major Recorded Votes:
There are no Roll Call votes for this bill.

So, my question remains: Why would anyone want a gun of any kind that is not detectable by any means other than short of a physical pat down or strip search? Now at this point, you are probably saying, where's the logic in that? For this totally insane Congress (both House and Senate passed the extension) that is one word they seldom use – not when political grandstanding will suffice as the NRA breathes down their neck.
