ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick addressed the phenomenon of ‘ghost guns’ being built across the country. Ghost guns are when pieces of material are bought online and used products from inside your home to build a dangerous firearm.
The DA voiced his concerns as at least a dozen ghost gun cases are pending in Onondaga County.
Fitzpatrick said, “This practice has got to stop. You cannot allow people who should not have access to weapons the ability to simply get online and for a fee, get what is essentially 80 percent of a handgun.”
Fitzpatrick has reached out to both Congressman John Katko and Senator Chuck Schumer to address the issue.
