File this under "Good Grief"

Forbes reports that a site has posted the blueprints for 3-D printing a high-capacity bullet magazine of the kind that may soon be banned. They are simple spring-loaded boxes, after all. So people with access to 3-D printers can make their own. 3-D printers are available in many college engineering labs and prices are dropping rapidly---the low end is now in the $1000 range.

Makes you think that technological disintermediation and personal empowerment are definitely mixed blessings.
