Queens DA lauds White House for new ‘ghost gun’ regulations


Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz is hailing President Joe Biden’s new regulations aimed at reigning in the proliferation of ghost guns, untraceable firearms that have turned up at multiple crime scenes across the borough.

Biden announced the new crackdown Monday that changes the definition of a firearm under federal law to include unfinished parts, like the frame of a handgun or the receiver of a long gun. It says those parts must be licensed and include serial numbers.
