Gun banners in Washington aren’t satisfied with preventing you from taking full advantage of your Second Amendment rights regarding firearms and associated accessories that are already obtainable: They also want to ban future guns and gun gear as well.

Take a recent proposal by U.S. Rep. Steve Israel, (D-NY). Shortly after President Obama affixed his signature to 23 executive “actions” tightening existing gun control regulations, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law a raft of harsh new gun control legislation, Israel is moving to ban futuristic 3D firearms magazines, according to a press release from his office.

Specifically, Israel is calling for a renewal of an “enhanced” Undetectable Firearms Act that would include the 3D magazine ban. The existing ban on plastics and plastic guns expires this year, you see, and Israel wants to make sure that no one but police and the military are able to protect themselves effectively.

It’s as simple as this – They don’t trust you, and they don’t like you

“Background checks and gun regulations will do little good if criminals can print high-capacity magazines at home,” he said, apparently oblivious to the fact that such weapons kill fewer Americans annually than do hands, fists and blunt objects. “3D printing is a new technology that shows great promise, but also requires new guidelines. Law enforcement officials should have the power to stop keep homemade high-capacity magazines from proliferating with a Google search.”

According to descriptions of the technology, such magazines can be using 3D printers. From Mashable.com:

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc.
