Senator Gillibrand pushes new legislation to end ghost guns at the source


Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced on Monday new anti-ghost gun legislation taking aim at the ability to construct the deadly weapons at home and share blueprints to do so online. 

According to police sources, the distribution and proliferation of ghost guns has become a concerning epidemic that puts the lives of both officers and the public at risk. The NYPD has spent years attempting to combat the crisis, however, the weapons keep popping up. In the past year, there has been a 75% increase in ghost gun seizures, according to Police Department Data.
