By Chris Eger, Guns.com: Gabby Giffords: Shut Down Ghost Gun Sites. A national gun control group is pushing the Internet Service Providers of two popular home-built firearm companies to disable the businesses’ websites.
The group, founded by former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, argues that GhostGunner.net and GhostGuns.com should be taken offline because they allow individuals who may be legally barred from buying a firearm to purchase kits that allow them to assemble guns themselves. As such, they contend the companies’ ISPs– Shopify and Dreamhost, respectively– are contractually entitled to shut the websites down.
The Giffords group frames their argument by citing homemade guns used in a series of murders earlier this month by a man in Tehama County, California who was a prohibited from possessing firearms.
