AG Rob Bonta joins civil case against producers of ghost guns
California – On Wednesday, California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced that he will join a civil case brought by San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin against three producers of ghost guns, which are untraceable and easily purchased online.
Boudin filed the lawsuit against Blackhawk Manufacturing Group Inc., GS Performance LLC, and MDX Corporation in August, alleging that the defendants’ business activities violate state laws prohibiting fraudulent business practices and false advertisement.
The suit further alleges the three companies are in violation of the federal Gun Control Act, as well as the state’s Firearms Law, which require background checks during firearm sales.
According to Bonta, once the kits are purchased, they can be assembled in as little as 15 minutes.
