A fully-functional plastic gun has been made from a 3-D printer and fired succesfully.
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday that he plans to introduce legislation that will ban these weapons, which would be undetectable from metal detectors.
‘We’re facing a situation where anyone — a felon, a terrorist — can open a gun factory in their garage and the weapons they make will be undetectable. It’s stomach-churning,’ he said.
‘Guns are made out of plastic, so they would not be detectable by a metal detector at any airport or sporting event,’ Schumer said, according WCBS 880.
‘Only metal part of the gun is the little firing pin and that is too small to be detected by metal detectors, for instance, when you go through an airport.
‘A terrorist, someone who’s mentally ill, a spousal abuser, a felon can essentially open a gun factory in their garage.’
