There already exist design files, such that anyone can 3D print their own
pistols.  I do not believe it will be very long before this is true of
fully automatic rifles too.  Obtaining ammunition might be a limiting
factor, but once someone develops (and distributes 3D files to print)
coilguns or railguns with decent stopping power, printing ammunition will
be easy too.

Technology often tramples the giving and limiting of rights, by granting
rights in a way that concerned people can not stop.
