What's your opinion on plastic guns

Laws don't stop criminals.. That's why they're called criminals.

 

If a criminal wants a gun, the last thing he will do is print one.

Why use a plastic gun for self-defense ? That's lame .

 

If you want to sneak a gun in somewhere like through security at airports and courts ? You use a plastic gun .

Think.

Question. If someone wants a "plastic" gun to sneak though airport security, do you think they are going to care whether or not a ban exists?

And this has what to do with whether or not they should be banned? So if they are banned and not available to be snuck into an airport, that restricts your rights because? So if another group of Mohamed Atta's hijacks and crashes planes into buildings using these weapons, that's just the price we pay to be free? So in that Looney Tunes mind of yours there just shouldn't be any restrictions whatsoever for any reason period?

any firearm that is not as detectable by walk-through metal detection as a security exemplar containing 3.7 oz of steel, or any firearm with major components that do not generate an accurate image before standard airport imaging technology.

Understood but there presently is no such thing (afaik). Barrels and internals almost all have to be metal to be reliable.

The bill to band undetectable guns is about to expire . Should we renew it or let anyone print a gun?

The ONLY real point to a Plastic gun..is to get it past a metal detector....and you thus can ASSUME there's a dangerous and criminal intent.

 

Maybe you and I are bulletproof..but most folks ain't. For any other purpose...plastic "printed" guns are NOT durable, reliable or cost effective. The GIZMO...ain't cheap. Maybe if you intend to arm a whole gang of thugs to do a few crimes...it can pay. For a LAWFUL gun owner...it's a waste of money. You can get a 1911 Colt cheaper and those suckers LAST.

You guys are morons. You have to use a metal firing pin or the thing won't work. So it's detectable.

 

 

 

Lol...irony.

Not really. There's alternatives to a "metal" firing pin, including less detectable non ferrous metals, composites, ceramics. While it is true, those are far less DURABLE the point is to sneak it past a metal detector and kill someone. This "undetected" home print, plastic gun...is not good for your night stand "home defense"...nor for a normal street gun...since the RELIABILITY factor is pretty important.

 

Whether at State or Fed level...there is NO excuse to allow guns INTENDED to get past a metal detector.

Metal detectors don't only detect iron. I don't know about composite and ceramic firing pins. There's no reason to ban undetectable guns that isn't more than an opinion. If individual states want to do it, fine. They're far from the first things designed to avoid detection.

 

Also, these guns don't just come out ready to fire. Every piece has to be printed up, and then the gun must be assembled.

For the record, one can not "print" a "plastic" gun. One can print plastic parts for guns but not an entire functioning gun. The barrels, pins, firing pins/strikers, springs, etc have to be metal to function. Otherwise the gun would explode and/or break apart after the first shot if it worked at all. Calling a gun plastic is like calling a car plastic because it has plastic body panels.

Not the point. A ban allows law enforcement to raid manufacturers and confiscate the contraband from owners.

 

Printed plastic guns will not be manufactured for law abiding citizens. If you think otherwise, you're an idiot.

 

 

Yeah, 3d printers and the plastic they print aren't cheap.

 

Then we'd simply be talking about a much higher caliber of criminal.
