ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The New York Attorney General is urging the federal government to crack down on ghost guns.

Letitia James joined a coalition of 22 attorneys general in sending a letter to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives asking the bureau to finalize regulations that would make clear that clarify weapon kits and incomplete weapon parts that can be assembled into a gun are firearms under federal law.

The attorneys general argue by doing so, the ATF would dramatically reduce the availability of these untraceable guns, and would take a significant step in addressing gun violence.

The attorneys general from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin all signed the letter.
