    Ghost guns are unserialized, untraceable firearms assembled by lay people at their own homes. Their prevalence has grown considerably over the past few years, attracting concerns about their legality and impact on public safety. As discussions about ghost guns migrate to the public sphere, this webinar intends to help the public navigate the conversation by discussing the following:

    • What are ghost guns,
    • Ghost gun prevalence,
    • Current ghost gun regulation,
    • Ongoing police response to ghost guns, and
    • The potential impact of ghost guns on public safety.
