NEW YORK, NY (March 9, 2023) — After obtaining a court order to immediately halt 10 national gun dealers from selling and shipping unfinished frames and receivers, the essential components of lethal and untraceable ghost weapons, into New York, New York Attorney General Letitia James issued the following statement today:
“The judgment handed down by the court today will assist in protecting New York communities and will save the lives of New Yorkers.
Ghost firearms and kits that make it easy to construct ghost guns have been responsible for widespread violence and damage across our state.
My office will proceed with the enforcement of our commonsense gun regulations, the promotion of public safety, and the removal of dangerous weapons from circulation in our communities.
In January, Attorney General Letitia James initiated legal action against ten national gun distributors by filing a motion for a preliminary injunction against them.
The motion demanded that the defendants immediately cease selling and shipping illegal unfinished and/or unserialized frames and receivers, also known as ghost gun parts, to customers in the state of New York.
Attorney General Letitia James initiated legal action in June of this year against ten national gun dealers for allegedly selling and delivering ghost gun parts into the state of New York. The Southern District of New York is now hearing arguments regarding the case.
The following ten gun distributors have been prohibited from shipping ghost gun kits into the state of New York: 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 (Rock Slide).
