‘Ghost Guns’: Firearm Kits Bought Online Fuel Epidemic of Violence

The manufacture and sale of ghost gun kits is a new driving force of America's gun violence epidemic.

In CA, we've been at the forefront of efforts to hold ghost gun companies accountable. We must use every tool we have to keep our communities safe.

They are untraceable, assembled from parts and can be ordered by gang members, felons and even children. They are increasingly the lethal weapon of easy access around the U.S., but especially California.

After a summer of climate calamities, we need a fall of action

The #climatecrisis is here & it’s getting worse.

As state AGs, we’ve been on the frontlines in the fight to protect our planet. But we can’t go it alone.
We need national—& global—action. Now.

The climate crisis is the no.1 public health emergency facing the world. People are dying & the costs are spiraling.

We must:
1. Invest massively in clean energy
2. End all new investment in fossil fuels
3. Promote justice for all communities

It takes all of us working together to avert the devastating effects of #climatechange. We must meet this moment with transformative, rapid change & the most aggressive climate investments in our history.
