AP: Biden Plans On Issuing Executive Order On Ghost Guns

The Associated Press is reporting: "Biden to announce executive actions to combat gun violence." I noted the other day that the marching orders had gone out to shift attention to "ghost guns," and sure enough that is where this is headed. Per the AP, "Biden is expected to announce tighter regulations requiring buyers of so-called 'ghost guns' to undergo background checks. The homemade firearms — often assembled from parts and milled with a metal-cutting machine — often lack serial numbers used to trace them. It’s legal to build a gun in a home or a workshop and there is no federal requirement for a background check."

  1. Biden's communist handlers plan on having Biden sign all kinds of things. It is a shame to waste such nice paper on such garbage.

    The first time I heard of a "ghost gun" it was in a National Geographic documentary on organized crime. The ghost guns were being made in the Philippines and clandestinely imported into the US. Those ghost guns had fake serial numbers so they didn't draw undue attention if seized by police.

    1. I presume that the grounds for such action will be a reinterpretation of the language that defines a firearm to include something that can readily be made to fire a projectile. But you’re right that it will do little or nothing to reduce criminals’ access to firearms.
