  1. Actual homemade ghost gun? Or a commercial weapon with the serial number illegally filed off?

    Both are now defined as “ghost guns”, and sadly the ATF is using the latter to stigmatize the former.

  2. It makes their agenda more solid
    When those who know how to transport,handle and know gun safety along with legal purchase lose their rights

  3. Please provide definition of ghost gun? Legally purchased built fire arm. Or illegally purchased fire arm with serial number removed (this is not truly a ghost gun).

  4. Hopefully this man turns his life around, RIGHT YOU GUYS? When are you southerners going to realize, you’re a family, dont blame each other, work together and heal your community so I can come visit comfortably.
