The group, led by Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D), sent a letter to [Merrick] Garland on Monday asking for him to expedite rule making from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) that would treat unfinished frames and receivers the same as fully-finished frames.

“Ghost guns” refer to kits that can easily be purchased be assembled into firearms. They can be sold without background checks, and are untraceable because they have no serial number.
