Let us not forget that lately UPS has been a great supplier of employee-stolen guns. UPS and ATF haven’t cared until now, but I’ll bet govt is now interested in the volume of UPS stolen guns.
I think this piece of the puzzle explains the exterior motivation to UPS dropping a selection of E-Commerce vendors...
New York AG Sues 10 National Firearm Distributors for Allegedly Selling ‘Ghost Gun’ Components
The press release from the NY State AG. has more details... some info I suspect was already subpoenaed from the shipping companies (packages of a certain size and weight sent to NY zip codes by the named e-commerce companies)
Attorney General James Sues National Gun Distributors for Fueling Gun Violence Crisis and Endangering New Yorkers
The businesses named in Attorney General James’ lawsuit are among the nation’s leading gun distributors.
They include Brownells, Inc. (Brownells), Blackhawk Manufacturing Group (80 Percent Arms), Salvo Technologies, Inc. (80 P Builder or 80P Freedom Co), G.S. Performance, LLC (Glockstore), Indie Guns, LLC (Indie Guns), Primary Arms, LLC (Primary Arms), Arm or Ally, LLC (Arm or Ally), Rainier Arms, LLC (Rainier Arms), KM Tactical LLC, and Rock Slide USA, LLC (Rock Slide).
An investigation by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) linked tens of thousands of shipments to New York addresses to these businesses dating back to 2017. Undercover OAG and New York City investigators were recently able to purchase unfinished frames online from three distributors, who shipped them into New York without serial numbers or a background check. Based on the weight and size of the packages sent to the undercover investigators, OAG has reason to believe tens of thousands of shipments sent by these businesses contain unfinished frames and receivers. Local, state, and federal laws prohibit the sale of unfinished frames and receivers
I hope someone find the details of the lawsuit published on-line.
I am thinking that the shipping companies are named and included as defendants.
New York city has a suit going too.
The state passed laws against "ghost guns" last year, so I am not sure why they went into records going back to 2017?
