What Does Steve Israel Really Want?

posted on April 7, 2015

Congressman Steve Israel, D-N.Y., is once again trying to suppress innovation in firearms design.

Israel, who has an “F” rating from NRA, told Wired magazine he intends to reintroduce legislation that would ban 3-D printed, or any fully plastic firearm, capable of slipping through a metal detector. Claiming he wants “laws in place to ensure that criminals and terrorists can’t produce guns that can easily be made undetectable,” Israel revealed his true intentions when he said: “What we’re trying to do is make it clear that if you choose to construct a weapon or weapon component using a 3-D printer, and it’s homemade, you’ll be subject to penalties.”

Since BATFE does not consider plastic guns a threat, and no criminal or terrorist has used one, we wonder which is more likely. Does Israel really want to make our nation safe from the terror of nonexistent guns, or does he just want to see his name in print?
