MD Lawmakers Begin Ghost Gun Hearings

(Annapolis, MD) — Maryland lawmakers have begun hearings on a measure that would ban ghost guns. The untraceable guns are made with parts that are purchased separately and have no serial numbers allowing people to get around background checks. Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott is in favor of banning the unregulated guns, saying no one should be able to bypass background checks and buy guns off the internet. The bill under consideration in Annapolis would prohibit the sale, receipt and transfer of the parts used to make ghost guns with a possible ban by January of 2023.
