San Diego-Area Elected Officials Applaud Biden’s New ‘Ghost Gun’ Rules
President Joe Biden Monday announced measures intended to crack down on so-called “ghost guns” — drawing praise from San Diego City Councilwoman Marni von Wilpert and county Board of Supervisors chair Nathan Fletcher, following similar actions taken by the city and county in recent months.
Said Fletcher: “President Biden’s administration recognizes the devastating effect ghost guns are having on local communities. I’m pleased they are taking action to better regulate the buy and build gun kits.”
In January, the Board of Supervisors also passed an ordinance requiring safe firearm storage and prohibiting the distribution or creation of ghost guns in the county.
“We stepped up … to eradicate these dangerous weapons from our neighborhoods, and the action by the White House strengthens our rules locally,” Fletcher said Monday.
