WEAPONS IN DISGUISE
GUN CONTROL GROUPS AND POLICE ORganizations have been lobbying for a law that would require a minimum amount of metal to be placed in handguns. Their actions come in response to the production of firearms made primarily of plastic. These firearms can circumvent the use of metal detectors used at airports, prisons, and secure government buildings. In November 1988, President Reagan signed a bill banning the manufacture, sale, or possession of plastic guns or any other firearm that can elude detection, except for guns certified by the Pentagon or the CIA.
Some weapons can bypass even the most sophisticated equipment, such as magnetometers and X-ray machines. Some of these weapons are available commercially and can in many cases be obtained by mail order. Others can be manufactured with common household materials.
The following are just a few examples of such weapons. While some may appear to be absurd, it is important to remember the type of person who would consider using these weapons.
