Pennsylvania judge puts hold on state ‘ghost guns’ policy

Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania judge is putting a freeze on a new state police policy regarding sales of partially manufactured gun frames that can be made into working firearms.

Commonwealth Court Judge Kevin Brobson issued a preliminary injunction Friday.

State police provided guidance to gun dealers about three weeks ago regarding how to perform background checks for sales of what are often called 80% receivers or unassembled “ghost guns.”

Brobson says the businesses that manufacture gun frames have raised a legitimate question about whether the state police policy is too vague. He says he’s open to revisiting the scope of his injunction, depending on what state police does in response.
