Van Hollen, Cardin Urge President to Take Immediate Action to Implement “Ghost Gun” Safety Measures

January 27th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Today, U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin (both D-Md.) urged President Joe Biden to take immediate action to finalize regulations addressing the threat of unserialized firearms – commonly referred to as “ghost guns” – to prevent violence and save lives in Maryland and across the nation. Following an incident last week at Magruder High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, in which a student allegedly shot and critically injured a classmate with a ghost gun and with the number of ghost guns used in crimes across Maryland increasing dramatically since 2019, Senators Van Hollen and Cardin reiterated the need for the Administration to swiftly enact a proposed rule pending at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) that would close loopholes to prevent these untraceable guns from falling into the wrong hands.
