Aren't those illegal in California? Better enact more unconstitutional gun laws! That'll solve the problem!

well here comes a bunch of politicians saying we need to ban kit guns even though guns are not the problem there are myriad of other factors in the shootings and gun control will never work. Any form of gun control is a blatant disregard for the Constitution of the United States of America I said it once and I'll say it again that I should be able to buy a gun as easily as I can buy a bag of chips change my mind.

The reciever of that gun had a serial number. Under federal standards that is not a 'ghost gun' but rather a heavily modified one. This seems like a thinly veiled attempt to ban composite weapons like the AR-15/M4 since they don't fit the technical legal definition of a firearm and are 'ghost guns'.

Article talks about a debate over gun rights. I'm not aware of any debate regarding my rights.

What California needs is even more gun control legislation! When you've already infringed on a Constitutionally guaranteed individual right, you may as well go full socialist authoritarian. Think of the children!!!

Gun control just won't work in America. The horse has well and truly bolted for that one. It's like trying to dig a hole in sand, it just gets filled in by the sand around it. The only way to do it would be to do it across all of America at the same time. This would require the same policy to be upheld across multiple presidencies and would result in a lot of bloodshed. As soon as a nationwide gun ban came into effect, criminals would think it's party time and gangs would start to take over the major cities like in prohibition. The government would have to declare a state of emergency and institute Marshall Law, bringing in the army just to restore peace. After maybe 10-20 years of war on the streets. Eventually every gun seized and every bullet fired would no longer be replaced and guns would finally start to disappear from the streets. So it's possible, but not plausible. A lot would have to happen including amending the constitution, bi partisan agreement and hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of dead.

It turns out in Australia there are actually more gun homicides now than before they enacted the gun ban. Weird right?

Wonderful. Well not the shooting. That is tragic for the community and family Making the 2nd amendment (and all our rights) uninfringable is essential. Consumer priced additive manufacturing will make that happen.

read the USA Today article. it states that the father owned multiple unregistered firearms, and had his taken away in 2016. no matter what a person can find a way to get what they want. a .44 caliber muzzleloading revolver is legally not considered a firearm because it doesn't have cased ammo.

Ban all parts that can be made into guns! We need an national innocuous materials registry! To protect the people- from themselves of course.

"Ghost gun". I've got to give it to the Democrats and their media operatives.. They are amazing at creating phony terms and narratives that incite fear in their efforts to force public policy.
