A pro-gun organization predicts President Obama will take full advantage of a bill recently passed to further limit the Second Amendment rights of Americans. 

Earlier this week, the U.S. Senate approved a 10-year extension of a federal law banning guns that can go undetected by metal detectors or X-ray machines. The law was scheduled to expire next week.

The Senate approved without objection the extension of the 1988 Undetectable Firearms Act. The House approved the 10-year extension last week, and President Obama is expected to sign it.

Mike Hammond, legislative counsel to Gun Owners of America, says in the hands of an anti-gun president and attorney general, the language of the bill could be expanded to cover guns with non-metal parts.

Hammon explains: "The legislation would give Obama the ability to ban any gun with a wooden stock – any gun which he could throw through a metal detector a thousand times and if the metal detector didn't beep once, he could ban that type of gun permanently."

Hammond says Obama has consistently shown that when he has the theoretical ability to go after the Second Amendment, he will stretch the law and perhaps even violate the law in order to do so.
