Reload Founder Stephen Gutowski appeared on NewsNow from Fox to discuss President Joe Biden’s plan to ban “ghost guns” through executive action.
“This particular action is the first of its kind,” Gutowski said. “They’re trying to broaden out the ATF’s authority to define what a firearm is.”
Gutowski said the scope of the rule was so wide that it could even catch the very base-level components of firearms.
“Anything that can be readily converted into a receiver can then be regulated as a firearm receiver,” he said. “So, even if something is down to the very base metal block these parts are made of under this rule, with how broad it is, that could be considered a firearm. That block itself would have to be serialized. If you wanted to buy one, you’d have to go through the process that you’d have to go through in order to buy a finished gun that’s fully functional.”
