Nazi terrorists 3D-printing guns in minutes as cops find huge haul in factory

Neo Nazi terrorists have been 3D-printing weapons in minutes, police have found after seizing a massive haul in Spain's first ever such case.

The huge arsenal including a replica assault rifle, small arms, several gun barrels, two tasers and a machete was discovered in a raid at a factory in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

Manuals on terrorism, urban guerilla warfare and how to make explosives at home using a 3D printer, white supremacist literature and a pistol holster with the symbol of the German army during the Second World War were also found.

It was the country's first factory to be found with 3D-printing gear that can manufacture gun barrels in as little as two minutes, Spain's National Police said in a statement.

The owner was arrested and charged with illegal possession of weapons and explosives.

A specialist team of dogs from the police's TEDAX bomb squad sniffed out chemical substances that could be used to make explosives, the statement said.

Police also found nine ammunition magazines, two silencers, two pieces for rifle barrels and a plastic mold to make triggers, sights and other small weapons parts.

The operation took place on September 14 last year but has remained secret by order of a judge, as often happens in Spain, until police were cleared to release details on Sunday.

In 2019, Wired reported that a new network of 3D-printed gun advocates was growing in America with no one in charge of the underground operation.

“If they [the government] were to come after me, they’d first have to find my identity,” says Ivan the Troll, a member of the group.

“I’m one of many, many like-minded individuals who’re doing this sort of work.”

The de facto spokesman told the website that he knows of at least 100 people who are actively developing 3D-printed gun technology.

He claimed there were thousands taking part in the network in loose-knit communities across the world.
