3-D Printing cranks out Large Magazines for Lunatic Gun Nuts.

With the advent of 3-D printers, that can create plastic replicas for guns that work, may be a way around large capacity magazines, if a ban goes into affect. Of course it would be illegal, so I'm sure there would be a fine and prison time for making them, but killers won't give a damn because they eventually only kill themselves after the thrill starts fading.

Fox News: Gun owners who can't buy high capacity ammo magazines because of new laws have another option: Print them.

Gun control measures passed or proposed in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre have targeted magazines that can feed 30 rounds or more into the firing chambers of AR-15s and other semi-automatic guns. New York has banned magazines holding more than seven rounds, and a federal bill proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., would ban magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

But the laws are at least one step behind technology. Using 3D printers and schematics available on the Internet, gun owners can manufacture a fully functional, plastic magazine clip. Plans are free, although getting access to a 3D printer may prove expensive, at least for now.
