STATEWIDE — New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg, Jr. announced Wednesday they have filed an amicus brief before the U.S. Supreme Court in Garland v. VanDerStok, in support of federal regulations issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that require ghost gun parts to have serial numbers and compel background checks for buyers. Ghost guns, which are proliferating across the nation, are untraceable weapons often made at home from kits. Gunmakers are challenging the Biden administration’s rules regulating ghost guns just like other guns, and the Supreme Court in April agreed to take up the case. 

In related news, Attorney General Letitia James said on Wednesday that she has joined a coalition of 24 attorneys general in filing their own amicus brief in the case.Ghost guns are on the rise across the country, and stripping away federal rules that help regulate these deadly weapons will cause the problem to get worse,James said in a statement.
