Senate approves gun screening bill, sends to Obama
The Senate voted unanimously on Monday to renew a 10-year ban on guns that cannot be picked up by metal detectors commonly found in airports, court houses and government buildings.
The law, which prohibits firearms made mostly of plastic, was set to expire at day's end.
It had drawn renewed attention recently due to its pending expiration and the advent of mainly non-metalic handguns produced by 3-D printers.
The House acted last week, and now the measure goes to President Barack Obama for his signature.
