The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Howard Coble that would add another 10 years to the life of a law that bans guns that canít be spotted with metal detectors or airport X-ray machines.
The 1988 law bans the kind of plastic weapons that are being made cheaply with 3D printing technology.
The House approved the extension of the law on a voice vote, something usually done when thereís broad bipartisan agreement.
If Congress doesnít extend the law, it will expire on Monday. That's also the day that the U.S. Senate returns from a two-week Thanksgiving break.
