‘Ghost guns’ are now traceable, as Biden rule takes effect


Committee Implicated:

Business and Labor, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice


Federal regulation prohibits kits with parts that could be used to build a gun for public sale, without a background check.

Federalism Implications

Comments from review documents indicate that the Department and ATF may have "failed to engage in a federalism analysis" , in accordance with Executive Order 13132. The Department argues that no federalism impact statement was needed since the the rule does "not preempt State laws or impose a substantive compliance cost on States."
