‘Ghost gun’ legislation passes in Montgomery Co.

April 8, 2021

The nine-member Montgomery County Council in Maryland voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a bill that restricts the possession, sale and transfer of so-called “ghost guns” to minors. The term ghost gun has been used to describe firearms that can be assembled and manufactured with the help of a 3D printer. Police and legislators who’ve targeted the firearms said they’re concerned because of the lack of serial numbers and that the components — plastic — make them hard to detect.
