Gun Owners of America notes this week's passage renewing the Undetectable Firearms Act is probably just a start:
So now we have the worst of both worlds: Congress has given the plastic gun ban a ten-year carte blanche, which will allow the Obama administration to engage in all of the anti-gun mischief that its sloppy language invites. And, at the same time, both Democrats and Republicans (like Grassley) are now committed to making the gun ban even broader over the next two months.Last December, Democrats made a brash grab at gun control and, for a short time, some of them even suggested confiscation might be in the works. Defenders of the Second Amendment pushed back, and the Left's dreams of what they labeled an assault weapon ban was pushed back into its bottle.
I don't expect a full frontal assault in the next go-round. Look for more innocent sounding piecemeal legislation. But I also expect there will be deceptive language in any new or rewrite bill to lay framework for much wider gun control in whatever is attempted.
Be forewarned. This is no time to let our guard down.
