Two US Gun Retailers Agree to Halt Sales in New York

New York, Aug 25 – Two retail companies for the sale of weapons in the United States, which had been denounced by the city of New York and the Attorney General’s Office of this state, have promised not to sell or send weapons parts to New York and to deliver information on sales made since 2020.

They are Washington-based Rainer Arms and North Carolina-based Rock Slide USA, which sell untraceable gun parts and components for assembly.

Rainer and Rock Slide “have stopped illegally selling and delivering components used to assemble illegal and untraceable firearms to New York City residents after the city filed a lawsuit against the two companies and three others. in June 2022,” said a statement from the New York City Council.

According to the note, both companies have also agreed to apply all technological and legal measures to continue sales in the future and to provide the city with information on sales made since 2020.

Last June, the attorney general of New York, Letitia James, and the mayor of New York, Eric Adams, announced that they had filed a lawsuit against a dozen retail companies that they accuse of “fueling the crisis of gun violence and putting endanger New Yorkers.”

The complaint alleges that these companies “sold tens of thousands of illegal and unfinished frames and frames to New Yorkers, which were then turned into unserialized, untraceable handguns and assault-style weapons,” which are known in the country as “ghost guns”.

The lawsuit includes the companies Brownells, Blackhawk Manufacturing Group, Salvo Technologies (80 P Builder or 80P Freedom), G.S. Performance, Indie Guns, Primary Arms, Arm or Ally, Rainier Arms, KM Tactical and Rock Slide USA.

“Ghost guns are illegal in our city, and we will not allow gun dealers to turn New York City into a mail-order town,” Adams said today.

New York has been trying for months to stop the rampant increase in crimes with firearms, which began to skyrocket after the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
