Ashley Hblebinsky testifies during Senate Judiciary Cmte "Stop Gun Violence: Ghost Guns" hearing

I wonder which group within the firearm prohibition lobby came up with "Stop Gun Violence: Ghost Guns."
GUN HISTORIAN ASHLEY HLEBINSKY DROPS TRUTH BOMBS IN ‘GHOST GUN’ HEARING
That’s why Hlebinsky wouldn’t repeat the politically-charged term “ghost gun.” It’s too easy to conflate with something that is invisible, indetectable or untraceable. None of which is true.
“But the big takeaway about the history is that these privately made firearms have been around for centuries, basically since the first system was developed over 500 years ago,” she said.
Hlebinsky added that the proposed rule change by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive (ATF) suggests modification to definitions that are inaccurate. She noted that striker-fire and split-receiver firearms aren’t new phenomena, but technologies that date to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Without truth and “discovery” in the legal/historical sense, any discussion (or court case) is doomed to be mired in hyperbole.

This is one of the rare times where I agree with Mike Lee.
Sen. Lee said the proposed rule is an attempt to make an end run past Congress and negate its role in creating law.

“I’m convinced that proposals like the proposed rule the Biden administration issued on Friday will affect those law-abiding Americans who use 80 percent lower receivers or receiver blanks while doing very little to stop criminals who want to use guns in order to hurt other people.”
