This could get interesting . . .

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has blamed everyone and everything but her own failed leadership for the rise in violent crime. First it was Indiana’s gun laws that were to blame. Then it was Mississippi. Now Lightfoot, along with Everytown for Gun Safety and the mayors of Syracuse, New York and Columbia, South Carolina, are blaming the ATF, alleging that the federal agency isn’t following the law when it comes to regulating so-called ghost guns; homemade firearms that don’t have a serial number or other identifying markers.

The federal lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, claims that until 2006 or so, the ATF mandated that unfinished receivers (the part of a firearm which houses components like the hammer or breechlock) had to carry a serial number, and anyone purchasing those components had to undergo a background check. Currently, the ATF says that a receiver that is 80% finished is not considered a firearm, and therefore doesn’t have to have any sort of identifying markers.

Don’t know what that lying Beetle juice looking hag is talking about. 80% receivers have never had serial numbers. They are not receiver by ATF law. Never have. even the ATF doesn’t use the term 80%. It either is or it isn’t a receiver. As long as a person makes one for personal use no number is necessary. If a person makes one for sale then it has been debatated and said that a serial number is necessary. But until it is finished their are no requirements.
Just another lying deceptive Democrat. I wish there was a way they could sue her
