Congress renews undetectable gun ban just in time
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., center, and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., arrive to talk to reporters about their effort to renew the ban on plastic firearms that can evade airport detection machines, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Dec. 9, 2013. Racing a midnight deadline, the Senate gave final congressional approval Monday evening to a 10-year extension of the prohibition against guns that can slip past metal detectors and X-ray machines.
