A traffic stop in California found 3D printed guns as well as the 3D printer that likely made them.
Deputy Ryan Rappisi and our patrol team served a search warrant today related to a previous traffic stop. The usual dope and illegal firearms were recovered, along with a 3D printer capable of producing plastic gun frames for ghost guns. Awesome job!! pic.twitter.com/wTw64cbLr7

The printer that was confiscated was likely an ENDER-3 V2 3D PRINTER , this particular model of 3D printer is cheap and cost just shy of $300.
The debate over firearms without serial numbers or “Ghost Guns” rages on in the public square as the technology used to make these guns becomes cheaper and firearm restrictions create more of a market for these guns. These guns are a target of the Biden administration as 80% lowers and 3D printer schematics may soon require a background check.
