This game is getting ridiculous. We have background checks which do an adequate job for what they are. So you want to ban things? You can't ban things I can make, never can, never will. We can already print parts for guns, let along magazine or drum magazines. You want to start banning things? We will start renting a portable CNC machine that will spit out 20-30 AR-15 lowers every day, and you can rent it by the hour. You can buy the 6061/6063/7075 billet as well. We can even include a 3d printer to print your magainzes as well.
You want to ban stuff go ahead. I can guarantee there will be 1000's of these set up in a week, probably closer to 10,000 of them b/c people are going to get greedy and think they can make $$. Then that will lead to the CNC machines for sale in 6-12 months for next to nothing and people can build an arsenal at home.
If you want to get serious, for $500 investment & about $50-100 materials, you can print 400+ 30 round magazines for an AR (not including making steel springs). Are you going to ban springs as well? OH, that's right, you can make those TOO very easily!

Wasn't there a case recently or a few years ago? Some guy put out 3d printing plans on internet for a firearm and I know the ATF or something got involved.
