Sheriff opposes 3D printed guns

Law enforcement officials are speaking out against potentially deadly weapons being created using 3D printers.


I got mine all downloaded so I don’t really care what the sheriff has to say about it. — Chris Bendet


Well, aren’t you clever? A family man not concerned about a convicted felon having a deadly plastic gun. Hope you can live with that decision. — Bryan Muth


Bryan, given that anyone can walk into the average plumbing supply store and walk out with sufficient components to make a significantly more durable home-built firearm, I’m not particularly worried about 3D guns printed from plastic. — Alan Blatman


Vests for police K9s

More and more police dogs are being outfitted with vests for their protection.


This is great as every K9 should have one. They deserve it. — Aunnie Covert-Ewens


We totally agree. — Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
