Ghost Gun Manufacturer Polymer80 Settles Case With the City of Baltimore.

Washington, D.C., February 21, 2024 – Building upon a legacy of fierce legal advocacy, Brady represented the City of Baltimore in their lawsuit against the nation’s largest manufacturer of homemade ‘ghost guns,’ Polymer80. The lawsuit, Mayor & City Council Of Baltimore V. Polymer80, Inc. and Hanover Armory, LLC, C.A. alleged that the company fueled gun violence in Charm City.

Philip Bangle, Brady Senior Litigation Counsel said:

“This is a victory for the City of Baltimore and the fight for gun industry accountability. Polymer80 fueled gun violence in the city by selling ghost guns to subvert lifesaving Brady Background Checks. A growing number of Americans are pushing back and seeking to eradicate these unserialized, untraceable firearms from flooding our communities. This settlement will staunch the flow of these weapons and force Polymer80 to contribute to healing the City of Baltimore for the injuries and trauma their products inflicted on the city.”

The lawsuit was filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court on June 1, 2022, the first day Maryland’s law banning ghost guns went into effect. The complaint sought to hold Polymer80 accountable for the harm it has caused in Baltimore and to stop the sale of ghost gun parts while also providing compensatory damages for policing costs, community violence intervention, and methods to heal the city.

Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
