BALTIMORE, Md. – Statement from Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh on SB387/HB425 banning ghost weapons in Maryland turning into legislation:
“Ghost weapons have turn into a quickly rising menace to public security. Easy to assemble kits can be found over the Internet. Violent felons, youngsters, and abusers are acquiring these deadly weapons in ever bigger numbers. Not solely are these weapons harmful, these unserialized, untraceable firearms hinder legislation enforcement’s efforts to unravel gun crimes. Our legislation banning ghost weapons in Maryland will save lives.
“Ridding our streets, our communities, and our faculties of unlawful, lethal weapons has been a precedence for our workplace for a few years. We have efficiently fought again a number of challenges to Maryland’s Gun Safety Act. We have charged and put in jail violent criminals, and now we have seized quite a few unlawful firearms. And at this time, our state has taken one other step to make our communities safer.
“We appreciate the work of Senator Lee, Delegate Lopez and legislative leadership in this important achievement.”
