Ghost Guns: Now Illegal In New York

In 2021, NYPD reported that it had recovered more “Ghost Guns” than in any previous year. Later that year, Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation into law that resulted in a crackdown on these types of guns.

A “ghost gun” is any gun that lacks serial numbers. They are usually assembled from component parts, which can be ordered online.

These bills were actually a package of three new laws.
