Attorney General granted injunction against ghost gun parts dealers
NEW YORK – New York State Attorney General Letitia James has secured a court order that immediately prevents 10 national gun distributors from selling parts, including frames and receivers that are used to build untraceable “ghost guns” in New York. The injunction also prohibits those manufacturers from shipping the parts into the state.
In January James filed a motion seeking the injunction demanding that the 10 companies immediately stop selling and shipping illegal unfinished and/or unserialized frames and receivers, or ghost gun parts, to New York consumers. The injunction was granted on March 9, by a federal court judge in New York. When the January motion was filed, James said, “Companies that sell ghost gun parts and kits present a clear danger to all New Yorkers,” adding “These deadly weapons are unregistered, untraceable, and do not require any background check to purchase, which means they can easily end up in dangerous hands. Once again, we are taking action to stop the flow of ghost guns into New York and to protect our communities from gun violence.”
The 10 gun distributors banned from shipping ghost gun kits into New York are Brownells, Inc. (Brownells), Blackhawk Manufacturing Group (80 Percent Arms), Salvo Technologies, Inc. (80 P Builder or 80P Freedom Co), G.S. Performance, LLC (Glockstore), Indie Guns, LLC (Indie Guns), Primary Arms, LLC (Primary Arms), Arm or Ally, LLC (Arm or Ally), Rainier Arms, LLC (Rainier Arms), KM Tactical LLC, and Rock Slide USA, LLC (Rock Slide).
