Biden Ghost Gun Rule to be Released; Nominate Another Anti-gun Person for the ATF

In the wake of rising crime across the country the Biden Ghost Gun Rule is expected to be released as soon as Monday. They believe that cracking down on the homemade firearms will reduce the “gun violence” and crime. Except that it will have very little, if any effect at all. On top of the new “rule,” they are weighing nominating another anti-gunner and former US attorney, Steve Dettelbach for Director of the ATF. We’ll have to see how that goes, since last time their pick had to be withdrawn.

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.

The Biden Ghost Gun Rule:

The rule is expected to change the current definition of a firearm under federal law to include unfinished parts, like the frame of a handgun or the receiver of a long gun.

In its proposed rule released last May, the ATF said it was also seeking to require manufacturers and dealers who sell ghost gun parts to be licensed by the federal government and require federally licensed firearms dealers to add a serial number to any unserialized guns they plan to sell.

The rule would also require firearms dealers to run background checks before they sell ghost gun kits that contain parts needed to assemble a firearm…

The critical component in building an untraceable gun is what is known as the lower receiver, a part typically made of metal or polymer. An unfinished receiver — sometimes referred to as an “80-percent receiver” — can be legally bought online with no serial numbers or other markings on it, no license required.

As we have mentioned constantly before, criminals do not abide by “rules” or laws. The only people affected by this are those law-abiding citizens who enjoy creating their own guns. The current narrative is that ‘ghost guns’ are turning up more and more at crime scenes, supposedly 24,000 of them between 2016 and 2000. Which is pretty low compared to the actual numbers of crime between those years.

Recently, Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland refused to sign a “ghost gun” law that is overly broad. It will take effect without his signature. A veto would have been a better choice and a little bit harder to overcome.

Senate Bill 387 is overly broad, and will end the centuries-old practice of individuals building lawful firearms for personal use. It prohibits transfer or possession of certain unfinished firearm parts that are not regulated under federal law, as well as firearms without serial numbers, with an exemption for pre-1968 firearms and antiques.

It requires anyone who wishes to keep their previously legal items, to have a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) apply a serial number to them, and then the owner must register them with the state police. Violations of selling or transferring, while misdemeanors, are punishable by up to five years of imprisonment, which results in the permanent loss of Second Amendment rights.

If the Biden ghost gun rule is anything like the Maryland law, the Second Amendment is in serious jeopardy.
