The modified definition is meant to disrupt a supply chain that has strengthened over the past five years, gun control experts said. The number of unserialized (and thus unregulated) firearms seized by major metro police departments has grown exponentially. In Philadelphia, local police seized 571 ghost guns in 2021 compared to 13 in 2018. In New York City, police seized 375 ghost guns in 2021 compared to 48 in 2019, according to city data.

“I could spend hours telling these stories about how these ghost guns have hurt our community and made our streets unsafe,” Baltimore Police Chief Michael Harrison, whose department seized nine ghost guns in 2018 compared to 352 in 2021, said at a January press conference.

Proposed ‘ghost gun’ rule could reshape battle against homemade guns: Experts – ABC News (go.com)

Let’s forget for a minute that the tale of tracing firearms as a violence-solving tool is well documented to be a colossal failure.  But what I wonder is why, after years and years of people making their own guns all over the US, the only places that have a “violence” issue with them is cities like Baltimore? Is Chief Harrison implying that before Ghost Guns, Charm City was a beacon of piece and innocence? A location where children played safely in the streets and unicorns roamed freely in its parks?

We know better.

  1. “Ghost gun” the new word that frightens moron, idiots and liberals…. Democrats gotta keep the fear factor goin. I guess they never heard of stolen guns sold by and to criminals…

  2. What is the “new definition” they are referring to? I assume this is a case like “assault weapon”, a meaningless buzzword redefined every other day to confuse the picture and “justify” oppressive policies.
    Perhaps they are now using the term to refer to ordinary guns with their serial numbers filed off? Or something else? It’s hard to imagine there are enough brains among Baltimore gangbangers to construct over 500 firearms from 80% kits.

    1. Of course the obvious observation is that these cases involve criminals, so whether so-called “ghost guns” are legal or not is irrelevant.

  3. “Ghost Guns”? Or regular guns with the serial number filed off? My bet is they are the latter.
    .
    How many of these cases have they referred to the BATFEIEIO for prosecution? If they hear of 30 or 40 gangbangers getting locked up out of state doing Federal Hard Time? I bet that would be a discouragement. 352 criminals in prison would be even better.
    .
    But the Baltimore Politicians are above that, and the local LEO’s are better than that
