Nearly a dozen gun parts sellers have been named various lawsuits, where officials are citing claims that certain gun parts can be assembled into untraceable weapons, also known as ‘ghost guns.’

This update is according to the latest from the Associated Press.

State Attorney General Letitia James and New York City Mayor Eric Adams say these weapons, which are apparently being sold online ‘ghost gun’ retailers, are being found at a rising rate in crime scenes throughout the state.

Attorney General James alleges that these companies have sold “tens of thousands of illegal ghost guns” into New York.

According to the Governor’s Office, ghost gun seizures have jumped 38% this year when compared with the same period in 2021.

"With substantial state investment in gun violence prevention programs and unprecedented collaboration between law enforcement agencies, we are beginning to see meaningful progress in our exhaustive efforts to eradicate gun violence from our communities," Governor Hochul said.
