Firearm group sues to block Nevada’s new ban on ‘ghost guns’

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A group of gun-rights activists has sued to challenge a new Nevada law banning build-your-own firearms.

The lawsuit was filed days after Gov. Steve Sisolak signed the ban on so-called “ghost guns” without serial numbers.

The Reno Gazette Journal reported Monday on the lawsuit. The Delaware-based Firearms Policy Coalition says the law is a broad violation of the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

President Joe Biden has promised to crack down on so-called ghost guns, which law enforcement officials say have allowed people who are generally barred from owning firearms to make them at home.
