    First, notice the URI path for this article? The Village Voice has pegged Chuckie perfectly: Running Scared

    Second, hopefully this is ok since I'm not discussing how to make them, but the feasibility of enforcing such a law.

    This is the equivalent of making fertilizer illegal: sure it can be used to make dangerous things, but how to enforce such a law? I envision anyone with such a plastic item keeping a gallon of acetone around so that if anyone questions them they can just pour it on the item and it goes down the drain.

    I wonder if people will ever start to realize that Chuckie is pandering to the scared with knee-jerk proposals.

    I am tired of all this reactionary politics, as well as our elected officials now taking the role of our parents and basically telling us what is and what is not good for us.

    plastic gun with metal firing pin

    now everyone can build their own plastic, non-metal detectable pistol

    kind of a big deal
