“American Express, Mastercard and Visa have the ability to go beyond what any law enforcement agency, legislature or city council can accomplish,” the statement read. “We are asking these companies to join us in stemming the flow of ghost guns into our communities by preventing a ghost gun kit from being sold with a few mere clicks on a smartphone or computer.”
Ghost guns are typically assembled from purchased or homemade components and lack serial numbers by which they can be identified.
California is already the most gun-controlled state in the Union, which is one factor driving the interest in weapons that will skirt government intrusion into gun ownership. As the many millions of law-abiding gun owners continually note, stricter gun control does not inhibit the lawless or the criminally insane; it only suppresses the constitutional rights of the law-abiding.
If Democrat leaders in California and other Democrat-controlled areas around the country want to reduce gun crime (which they don’t — they only want to exterminate gun ownership), they can stop calling for defunding the police, stop pushing “criminal justice reform” that puts felons back on the streets, and start cracking down on violent elements like gangs and Antifa anarchists.
