Senate Bill awaiting Governor Larry Hogan’s signature to ban ghost guns

MARYLAND — The Maryland Senate Bill 387 is awaiting the signature of Governor Larry Hogan.

Attorney General Brian Frosh issued the following statement about the senate bill banning ghost guns in Maryland:

“Our bill to ban Ghost Guns in Maryland passed the House today and heads to Governor Hogan’s desk.  These untraceable firearms have become the weapon of choice for criminals.  They are easily purchased over the internet without a background check, making them easily accessible to children, violent felons, domestic abusers, and others who are ineligible to own a firearm.  This bill closes a loophole that makes it difficult for law enforcement to do its job and creates a terrible public safety threat.  This legislation will save lives.  I appreciate the hard work of Senator Susan Lee, Delegate Lesley Lopez and Committee Chairs Will Smith and Luke Clippinger in moving this important legislation forward.”
