NY AG Issues “Cease and Desist” for Ghost Gun Manufacturers
This week State Attorney General Letitia James announced she  ordered 16 websites to immediately stop selling “ghost guns”. These kits allow buyers to purchase and assemble assault weapons, which are illegal in New York. James says these companies also have provided means to violate New York state’s assault weapons ban. The Attorney General says these companies have been marketing their machined lower receivers as “80 percent” complete to avoid being held to federal regulations. In her “cease and desist” letter, James claims these gun sellers unlawfully promote possessing illegal weapons and do not warn consumers adequately that assembling an assault weapon in the state is illegal and they can be penalized by law for each violation.
