“Ghost Gun” Threat Over Hyped

From Bearing Arms:

So-called “ghost guns” are really just any firearm that’s created without a serial number. Making such weapons isn’t illegal. It’s not even illegal in many places that have supposedly banned these kinds of weapons–mostly because the bans only impact kits and not the act itself. Making a firearm yourself is something that a lot of Americans enjoy.

Yet some people are completely uncomfortable with the idea that someone could build a firearm and not have to get permission from the government to do so.

ATF Tries To Redefine “Firearm”

The proposed rule, the “Definition of Frame or Receiver and Identification of Firearms” was introduced in May and signed by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Public comments on the rule closed Thursday.

It would amend the Code of Federal Regulations, including the term “firearm” in order to regulate firearm kits, and amend the term “gunsmith” to clarify that gunsmiths must mark unlicensed guns — effectively making the individual the manufacturer. It would implement regulations on nearly all portions of a firearm.

Building An AR-9 Pistol

From The Truth About Guns:

Over the last year, I’ve made a solidly-performing 9mm polymer framed pistol, a fun AR-15 style rifle and a great “parts-bin” AR10 in 6.5 Creedmoor based on kits from 80% Arms and Brownells. For the fourth installment of this loose series, I put together the 80% Arms AR-9 GLOCK magazine compatible braced pistol.

From Bearing Arms:

One of the evil, naughty, and nasty things that Biden-Harris have been after are the mysterious and haunting ghost guns. There happens to be a bill to outlaw these mythical devices. Last month Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) introduced H.R. 3088: Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021.

ATF Looking To Change Definition Of Gun

From Breitbart:

According to the Wall Street Journal, the ATF is framing the scenario as an expansion of what can be categorized as a “firearm,” a move that “could subject ghost guns to the same regulations as other firearms.”

The ATF’s April Langwell defended the agency’s look into new regulations for such guns, saying, “ATF routinely meets with our regulated industry participants to discuss matters of mutual concern. One of those meetings is scheduled for this week, and ATF looks forward to continuing this important dialogue.”

California AG Sues ATF Over 80% Firearms

From Courthouse News:

Shearer, who is co-counsel in the lawsuit, said state gun laws have been undermined by the ATF’s refusal to treat the parts used to build homemade guns as firearms. This allows “unscrupulous” DIY firearm sellers to flood the gun market.
“The ATF has specifically exempted them from the federal definition of a firearm, meaning federal gun laws don’t apply to them. As a result, people can order and build these guns without passing background check or even verifying their age,” she said. “This has opened the biggest loophole you can imagine in our federal and state gun laws.”

Conn. Town Bans Homemade Guns

From Guns.com:

“This is a piece of metal that you can easily buy in the markets,” said Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez in a press conference, holding up an unfinished 80-percent AR lower. “But if you can get this, you can make this,” he said, holding an AR-15 short-barreled rifle. “And this is a real weapon. This weapon will discharge anywhere from 50 to 30 rounds at a time.”
