ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — As the technology to print 3-D firearms advances, a federal law that banned such guns is about to expire.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer says he's seeking an extension of the law before it expires Dec. 9.
He says the technology of so-called 3-D printing has advanced to the point anyone with $1,000 and an Internet connection can access the plastic parts that can be fitted into a gun. That weapon can't be detected by metal detectors or X-ray machines.
Schumer says that means anyone can download a gun cheaply, then take the weapons anywhere, including high-security areas.
The Democrat is pushing the extension along with Sens. Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Bill Nelson of Florida.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri judge has struck down a pair of new laws that had limited the ability of cities and counties to regulate cellphone towers.
Cole County Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce ruled that lawmakers violated procedural requirements of the state constitution when passing the bills earlier this year.
She said the bills' title of "relating to telecommunications" did not encompass everything in the bills. She noted that one bill also contained provisions related to railroad crossings and utility rights-of-way. Another bill contained provisions related to cable TV services, which she said are not legally the same as telecommunications.
Joyce also said lawmakers had changed the bills' original purpose.
Gov. Jay Nixon and legislative leaders had touted the legislation as a way to encourage expansion of high-speed Internet and wireless phone service.
Governor Jay Nixon's veto of a controversial gun rights measure will stand.
The override of HB-436 had passed the Missouri House 109-49 Wednesday afternoon, but the override attempt fell a single vote short in the Senate Wednesday night (22-12).
The legislation declared that any federal policies that "infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms" shall be invalid in Missouri. It would have allow state charges to be brought against federal authorities who attempted to enforce federal gun laws.
After the Senate vote Wednesday night, Nixon issues a statement applauding the Senate's action to sustain his veto of a bill he called "unnecessary, unconstitutional and unsafe."
NEW YORK (AP) - A federal appeals court says prosecutors can't use a defendant's request for a lawyer as evidence of guilt.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York noted Monday that it was touching new legal ground as it ruled against the government in a case prosecuted in Albany, N.Y.
The appeals court has ordered a new trial for a man convicted of charges relating to illegally bringing an alien into the United States. The case involved the arrest of a U.S. citizen who had tried to enter the country with a German citizen in 2010 near Buffalo, N.Y.
The appeals court says prosecutors unfairly used the U.S. citizen's request for an attorney as evidence of his guilt.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal judge is rejecting a legal bid by gun-rights advocates who wanted people to be able to immediately carry firearms in Illinois under the state's new concealed carry law.
East St. Louis U.S. District Judge William Stiehl threw out the lawsuit filed by Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association, siding with the state and saying the legal action is moot.
Shepard and the rifle group had argued it was unconstitutional to make people wait for the permit process to be outlined under the new concealed carry law that lawmakers passed July 9.
Illinois was the last state in the nation to ban the practice.
Illinois State Police have 180 days to set up a program before accepting applications, plus another 90 days to process the forms.
