President Biden and his administration is now expected release a new ban on the making and sale of ghost guns which are firearms built privately without serial numbers. More and more of these weapons are turn up at crime scenes according to the Associated Press.
President Biden and his administration are doing so in hopes of reducing gun related deaths across America.
According to Fox, President Biden will likely naming Steve Dettelbach, a former U.S. attorney from Ohio, to run the ATF.
Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer has asked Biden to act faster on taking ghost guns of the streets and said, “It’s high time for a ghost gun exorcism before the proliferation peaks and before more people get hurt — or worse. My message is a simple one: No more waiting on these proposed federal rules.” Ghost guns are “too easy to build, too hard to trace and too dangerous to ignore.”
Justice Department has said that 24,000 ghost guns were found at crime scenes between 2016 to 2020 and it is currently unknown just how many of these guns are currently on the streets because they are untraceable.
