Here’s another problem in trying to ban the sales of high-capacity magazines- you can now print them. In this video from Defense Distributed we see a test fire of an assault rifle using a 3D-printed 30-round clip.

With this sort of technology becoming more and more available, some believe it won’t be long before you can print yourself a high-capacity clip at home.

Cody Wilson, cofounder of Defense Distributed, talks about the weapons ban:

Lawmakers “are taking a giant step backward, and it makes everything we’ve talked about more practical,” argues Wilson. “There’s more opportunity to demonstrate the usefulness, the consequences of our project. I can already print this magazine and show that prohibition has run up against a problem.”
