Experts say a proposed ‘ghost gun’ law might redefine the fight against improvised firearms

            For over 11 months, weapon manufacturers and gun control proponents have been waiting as a key “ghost gun” rule snaked its way through federal regulatory processes, getting closer to implementation.

During strong storms Monday night, at least ten tornadoes were recorded in Texas. Everytown for Gun Safety’s president referred to the weapons business as “the most uncontrolled part of the firearms industry”. A bill that would expand the federal definition of “firearm” to include unfinished gun components is poised to pass. Ten states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to interrupt the supply chain of phantom weapons. “The regulation will shut down the marketplace moving ahead”, said the president of Everytown for Gun Safety.

Ghost weapons are unsealed, untraceable, and may be acquired online by persons who are unable to purchase a standard firearm. According to Keane, many of the new implementations, such as duplicated or reissued serial numbers on firearms, are outside the ATF’s jurisdiction.
