Los Angeles Sues Leading Ghost Gun Kit Seller Polymer80
Everytown Law partnered with the Los Angeles City Attorney to file a lawsuit on behalf of the people of California to try to shut down alleged illegal ghost gun kit sales by a leading online seller, Polymer80.
The City of Los Angeles, represented by Everytown Law, filed suit against Polymer80, the nation’s largest manufacturer of so-called “ghost guns” on behalf of the People of California. Polymer80 sells kits and components of firearms over the internet for easy assembly at home, and does so without conducting any background checks or the purchasers or inscribing serial numbers on the guns, in violation of multiple federal and state laws. These guns have predictably ended up in the hands of dangerous people; in the Los Angeles area, a staggering 40% of guns recovered at crime scenes are ghost guns, and ghost guns were used in the Saugus High School shooting that left 3 children dead and the ambush on two sheriff’s deputies in 2020. By this lawsuit, Everytown Law and the City Attorney’s Office of Los Angeles seek to hold Polymer80 accountable for its dangerous role in putting these weapons on the streets of California.
