Schumer Statement On Biden Administration Crack Down On Ghost Guns

April 11, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement on President Biden’s announcement of new federal rules to crack down on ghost guns and combat gun crime:

“For too long, ghost guns have been haunting our streets and taking lives. Because Republicans who march in lockstep with the NRA have blocked the Senate from passing legislation, I am very glad President Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland are taking on the issue of ghost guns with strong executive action. I have been warning about these dangerous gun kits for years because they are too easy to build and too hard to trace. This new federal rule will help police exorcise these ghost guns from our streets and crack down on violent gun crimes.”
