The California Senate has passed a bounty-hunter law modeled after Texas’ 2021 ban on abortions, allowing private citizens to file suit for at least $10,000 against makers or sellers of untraceable ghost guns and illegal assault weapons, reports the Courthouse News Service. The bill defines illegal assault weapons as including AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifles, which have been used in virtually every mass shooting in the United States and also targets ghost guns, which are sold in parts without serial numbers or background checks to be assembled by the user.
The Eliminate Non-Serialized Untraceable Firearm (ENUF) ordinance was introduced by San Diego City Councilmember Marni von Wilpert after a man opened fire on strangers in downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter, killing one and injuring four. The suspect — who was prohibited from using guns — used a ghost gun in the shooting.
