The rise of “ghost guns” is the fastest growing gun safety problem facing our country, according to a recent Everytown for Gun Safety research report.

What is a “ghost gun?” It is a firearm assembled from a kit that is available online, at gun shows, and at some stores. This DIY firearm kit can be purchased with no background check because it is not regulated under current ATF rules regarding firearms.
