Fake News: ABC and NBC Scaremongering on the Dangers of “Ghost Guns”
Two stories on “Ghost Guns” or “80% Guns” tell the tale of some fake news. The NBC story leaves the impression that all the parts needed to build an unregistered Ghost Gun are online, and all someone has to do is put all the parts together, and presto-changeo you have your own unregistered, untraceable, and legal gun.
Here’s the ABC story that’s mostly accurate but still scare-mongering:
Criminals always find ways to get guns. They often steal them. It does not matter if the gun is registered since it’s not registered in the name of the thief.
