Investigation finds sales of ghost guns surging ahead of new federal regulations

From CBS News.

The number of ghost guns — firearms assembled from parts without serial numbers — recovered by law enforcement from crime scenes has risen dramatically since 2016. New regulations go into effect August 24, but as CBS News investigative correspondent Stephen Stock discovered, that’s led to a "fire sale" of ghost gun parts.
