Nick Reisman reports for New York State of Politics that the office of New York's Attorney General Letitia James' filed a preliminary injunction July 14 against a half dozen firearm distributors to stop the distribution and sale of gun parts in the state. The parts are used in so-called "ghost guns" that are difficult for law enforcement to trace. “Every single day people across the country are losing their lives to gun violence,” James said. “We cannot and will not allow our children and our communities to continue to live in fear that their school, parade, or grocery store will be next. Today, we are taking serious action to immediately stop these companies from illegally selling and bringing these dangerous ghost gun parts into New York. We will continue to fight to protect New Yorkers and bring justice to communities devastated by gun violence.” The companies getting notice are from across the country: Brownells, Inc., Rock Slide USA, LLC, Arm or Ally, LLC, Rainier Arms, LLC, Salvo Technologies, Inc., and Indie Guns, LLC.
