Ghost Guns

Homemade ghost guns are virtually untraceable, deadly weapons.  That’s why we urge you to join us in supporting new regulations to ensure ghost guns are kept out of the hands of criminals and those who would harm our children.

what are ghost guns?

Ghost guns refer to homemade firearms that are created by assembling pieces, sold together in a kit or separately, to create a fully functioning firearm. Downloadable kits can even be bought online and can be made using 3-D printers.

Sold without background checks and serial numbers, unlike firearms sold by licensed manufacturers or importers, they’re almost impossible to trace. Ghost guns are especially dangerous in that they are completely accessible to people who are legally prohibited from purchasing firearms, including minors.

Are Ghost Guns Used in School Shootings?

Ghost guns have already been used in school shootings. In Santa Clarita, CA, a 16-year-old brought a ghost gun to school. He used it to kill two of his classmates and injure three others before taking his own life.

One of the survivors of that tragic shooting is Mia. “On November 14, 2019, a student walked into Saugus High School, with a gun and shot five students – including me,” Mia shared. “I survived, but my best friend, as well as another classmate, didn’t.” Watch her story about surviving this horrific school shooting and see how she is rebuilding her life.

How Can We Stop Ghost Guns?

The Biden administration is taking a strong step forward to stop ghost guns from proliferating further and killing more innocent children. A recent administrative rule would protect kids from gun violence by beginning to regulate ghost guns. They would become regulated like all other firearms under the jurisdiction of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).
