Urge the ATF to Regulate Ghost Guns!


"Ghost guns" are untraceable, homemade firearms and are one of the fastest-growing threats to public safety in the country. A new measure could prevent their deadly spread — if we act now!

We need your urgent help to counter the NRA and show an outpouring of support for President Biden’s proposed federal action to prevent the spread of dangerous ghost guns.

Recently, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a proposed rule to prevent the spread of ghost guns, which are untraceable firearms that anyone can assemble at home. Because they're are unserialized, ghost guns are nearly impossible for law enforcement to trace. They evade background checks, making them popular among people who intend to use them in crimes.

President Biden's proposed rule would ensure ghost guns are treated as the fully functioning firearms that they are, plain and simple.

The NRA and the gun lobby are doing everything they can to prevent this lifesaving rule from being finalized. That’s because if finalized, it would close the dangerous “regulatory loophole” that allows untraceable ghost guns to evade existing gun laws, including background checks. This rule would finally recognize ghost guns as the deadly, fully functional firearms that they are, helping prevent their spread as a growing murder weapon of choice in America.
