Take Action

Tell the ATF to take immediate action on ghost guns!


Ghost guns are a growing weapon of choice among people who are legally prohibited from buying guns. And right now, during the pandemic, retailers are reporting that sales of ghost guns are surging!

Tell the ATF to act immediately!

Using the form below, urge the ATF to act quickly and take steps to ensure that these unregulated, untraceable, and unserialized ghost guns are not obtained by prohibited purchasers.


WHAT ARE GHOST GUNS?

Ghost gun kits include all of the parts and often the equipment necessary to build these weapons at home. As these kits and guns are sold at gun shows and online every day throughout the country, they undermine all of the life-saving policies that advocates and legislatures have fought so hard to put in place.

Ghost guns are constructed by individuals using unfinished frames or receivers, the piece of the firearm that contains the operating parts of the firing mechanism, and which are the part of the gun regulated under federal law. However, when a frame or receiver is “unfinished” by a small fraction, it is unregulated. Ghost gun kits include all of the necessary component parts to turn the unfinished frame or receiver into a fully functioning gun, which once assembled looks, feels, and functions like any other gun, and is just as dangerous in the wrong hands.
