Contact your Congressman/Woman and Senators and give them the 5 reasons that the plastic gun ban should not be reauthorized.

1. If, after removing grips, stocks, and magazines, any gun is not as "detectable" by a metal detector as is a "Security Exemplar," the gun is banned -- permanently.

2. Within certain broad parameters concerning metallic standards, anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder gets to determine the exact shape and characteristics of the Exemplar, what metal detector is used, and how many times (or how many thousands of times) the gun has to pass.

3. If any major component of the gun -- which the statute tries to define, but may ultimately be defined by Eric Holder -- doesn't produce an accurate x-ray image (again, defined by Holder), the gun is banned.

4. Schumer and his allies have engaged in a concerted effort to use a plastic gun ban reauthorization to ban much of America's firearms manufacturing. Drafts which they have pushed all year would ban a printer, mold, or program which could conceivably be used to make a plastic gun. The problem is that any such printer, mold, or program would also ban technology and molds used by many firearms manufacturers to make widely used metal guns.

5. The underhanded way Chuck Schumer tried to ram this re-authorization through. Schumer attempted to slam through his gun manufacturing ban without a vote (i.e., by unanimous consent) and without notifying Republicans of his intentions through a telephone notification procedure called "hot-lining."

Just the fact that the Democrats are behind it and are running to all the news agency's, even FOX news and calling for the ban, SHOULD be a WARNING signal to open minded thinkers!

YOUR "Freedoms" will always be attacked by this Party!!!!

AND

Your Children will remain "indoctrinated"

YEAH!!!!

And thanks to Reagan for getting that law in place to start with and protecting our azzes!!

RAH!!RAH!!RON!!!

The 1988 Undetectable Firearms Act was enacted under President Reagan and reauthorized under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush.

A bipartisan majority in the House voted to extend a bill banning plastic guns or other guns that would not be detectable in a metal detector or x-ray machine on Tuesday.
The Undetectable Firearms Act, first passed in 1988 and renewed since, is set to expire on December 9. The act prohibits the manufacture, sale, or possession of firearms that do not contain enough metal to render them detectable by metal detectors and hence could be brought into airports or other secure places.

The bill required a two-thirds majority to pass, and it passed easily by voice vote.

Any one of us can be fooled by propaganda. Reagan was not immune from it.

A lot of people got convinced that the "new" to the US market, Glocks, were the "undetectable" firearm that was going to be used in ONLY criminal activity's!!

AND guess which State made the switch from American made side arms to the "new" Glocks!!??

Ole Chuckie and Teddy were hounding it all over the news!!! back then along with all their other "comrades"!!

THEN

Guess who "scrapped" a legal contract and "promised" purchases if a certain foreign company would build a factory HERE!??

Politicians, more corrupt then any other "group" known to man!

Yep. Ronnie Ray-Guns all the way. NOT


The One Hundredth United States Congress was a meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, composed of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in Washington, D.C. from January 3, 1987, to January 3, 1989, during the last two years of Ronald Reagan's presidency. The apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives was based on the Twentieth Census of the United States in 1980. Both chambers had a Democratic majority.



When will you foolish folks learn? Ronald Reagan might have been President but that 2/3 majority vote is a VETO PROOF vote. So thank your demonRAT friends for forcing the law.

Did Reagan sign it or not?

And apparently the GOP controlled House just passed the bill.
