Colorado Plans on Cracking Down on “Ghost Guns”

On April 12, 2023, Colorado Democrats put forward a measure that would ban untraceable firearms. This is part of a broader agenda to impose additional gun control measures in the Colorado state legislature. 

Under this legislation, people who already own firearms with no serial number will have until the beginning of 2024 to have a licensed dealer engrave them with a serial number. This transaction would require the gun owner to undergo a background check and record the serial number.

In addition, this legislation would ban the purchase and possession of any unfinished firearms that don’t possess serial numbers and can be easily constructed. On top of that, the bill would ban devices that would allow semi-automatic untraceable firearms to fire at a similar rate to automatic weapons. 

The Colorado Sun reported the following:

Under the bill, people found to have created or be in possession of an unserialized firearm or gun frame would face a Class 1 misdemeanor for a first offense, punishable by up to 364 days in jail, and a Class 5 felony, punishable by up to three years in prison, for subsequent offenses.

According to Giffords Law Center, 11 states — California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Washington — and Washington DC have imposed laws that regulate untraceable firearms. 

Attacking ghost guns is just the latest way the anti-gun Left is trying to undermine the Second Amendment. Untraceable firearms, especially homemade ones, are American as apple pie and have been built even before the US was founded as a republic. It’s clear what Gun Control Inc. is trying to do here. It’s trying to get its foot in the door and making efforts to achieve its broader goal of destroying the Second Amendment. 

Banning ghost guns is just the first step in this process.
