The professional jernalizmists at NBC News set out to produce sensational hidden camera hit pieces on JSD Supply and Polymer80. The goal, of course, was to send a chill down the spines of Mr. And Mrs. America over the looming threat that “ghost guns” present to law and order. They want the average uninformed citizen to associate legal home-built firearms with criminals and violence.

In the process of putting together their ham-handed piece on JSD, NBC’s highly trained media professionals managed to violate a range of local, state and federal laws (allegedly), something we and others have pointed out (see here).

Yesterday, a group of five gun rights orgs asked the Pennsylvania House Speaker to open an investigation into Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office. Some of the AG’s employees participated in the production of the NBC report and appear to have also violated a number of laws in the process.

The NBC report on Polymer80 — with the inflammatory title, ‘Polymer80’s name has become synonymous with ‘ghost guns.’ Now it’s in the crosshairs.’ — attempts to smear the company, insinuating that they’re somehow skirting the law, when their perfectly legal products comply with all applicable regulations. In response, Polymer80 has just issued the following press release regarding the ongoing NBC kerfuffle . . .

An NBC News article titled “Polymer80’s name has become synonymous with ‘ghost guns.’ Now it’s in the crosshairs.” is an attempt to distort facts, sensationalize crime statistics and turn an innovative company into a villain.

Anti-Second Amendment politicians, advocacy groups and members of the media use the label “ghost gun” to strike fear and trick the public. Those individuals and groups want the public to believe that privately made firearms are synonymous with crime, even though thousands, if not millions, of Americans have lawfully engaged in this right and freedom for centuries.

The truth is, there is a long, storied tradition of firearms use and innovation in America, including the freedom to participate in the build and customization of firearms. Americans have, for centuries, participated in this great tradition in compliance with federal, state, and local laws applicable to them.


Polymer80, Inc. has always operated — and will continue to operate — lawfully, in compliance with local, state and federal laws. Polymer80, Inc. will also continue to vigorously challenge encroachments and attacks on freedom, such as attempts to co-opt the term “ghost gun” for political purposes (whether it be through outright bans on privately made firearms or ill-conceived restrictions) or attack the Second Amendment and the rights of law-abiding Americans. Polymer80 stands ready to defend the constitutional rights of every American to engage their freedom.

  1. As long as home built guns have serial numbers and are vetted by the Brady Bill they are not a menace to society.

    Right now they sure as hell are and this is not rocket science. The are heaven sent to criminals and deranged mass murderess as proven by the blood and carnage they have wrought on society.

    Its a done deal anyway as Biden has ordered the ATF to ban them by regulation, an old trick that has stood the test of time and the gun hating courts.

    ATF regulation is the only option to by pass a corrupt do nothing Congress who is more interested in receiving blood money than in protecting the American public from this latest criminal scourge.

    • Birds of a feather flock together.
      dacian belongs to a gunm club that supposedly has 1000 members.
      What a bunch of pricks

      • Birds of a feather flock together. That’s not necessarily true however as I once cut loose on a flock of black birds , upon examining the dead birds I found three different species of black birds, and 6 sparrows.

    • real or not darcydodo…Your devotion to Gun Control which is a history confirmed agenda rooted in racism and genocide says a whole lot about, “You.”

    • Firearms are not a menace, criminals and socialists calling themselves democrats are the menace in this country.

      • Dear ” Truth About Guns, why is a comment with no threats, curse words or lies being held up in “moderation” by Herr Goebbles ?

        • Certain “Words” can trigger moderation because of the word itself. Context matters and the comment will get posted if innocuous.

    • The threat to our country lies with the socialists that try to subvert our Constitution and Bill of Rights with fake propaganda and blaming law abiding citizens for the crimes committed by criminals.

    • And your Caravan of Death will inflict a special execution for those caught with ghost guns.

      Unless they are antifa members or special oppressed classes.

  2. They are a menace to society, the “Great Society” of democrat’s socialist dreams. Just got my kit to build another.

  3. Determining the problem isn’t rocket science.
    Put a gun into my hand and I won’t kill anyone.
    Put a gun into Deandres or Smileys hands and they’ll kill somebody.
    The problem is with the Deandres and Smileys of the world. So why take it out on me?

  4. No particular form of weapon is a menace to society.

    The weapons supply logistics of organized violent crime gangs are a menace to society.

    • I know someone who makes his own billet lowers from scratch, uses 7075-T6. He really does a fantastic job on them. He sets up the 7075-T6 in the CNC machine, a few mouse clicks at the computer to get the CAD files up and start the process, and before long a new lower. The guy has like around 100 AR platform rifles in different calibers. He does his own hand guards too.

      • to Booger

        Few people have machinist skills and if they made guns illegally for the public they would be caught in short order. You seem to come up with these rare examples that are nothing more than an example of acts that would not contribute to a large amount of illegal weapons.

        At present we have literally millions of second hand guns and thousands of ghost guns creating havoc in our society. No civilized society permits the sale of second hand guns without paperwork and all outlaw ghost guns.

  5. “Polymer80’s name has become synonymous with ‘ghost guns.’ Now it’s in the crosshairs.” is an attempt to distort facts, sensationalize crime statistics and turn an innovative company into a villain.”
    If they have Libturds’ panties in such a wad, they must be doing something right. Well, done
    Carry on, Polymer80!!!!

    • Don’t forget Lone Wolf. They make 80% “Glock” lowers, too, which are compatible with both Gen 3 and Gen 4 innards and uppers.

  6. Only used in connection with 325 homicides OR ATTEMPTED homicides. Yet this is a huge problem? Even if a ban did not infringe on rights, PMF are not the issue.

    “Privately made firearms (PMFs), known as ghost guns, are a rapidly growing contributor to violent crime. From January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2020, there were approximately 23,906 suspected PMFs reported to ATF as having been recovered by law enforcement, including in connection with 325 homicides or attempted homicides. The trendline is troubling: in 2016, local law enforcement reported to ATF 1,750 suspected PMFs; by 2020, that number had grown to 8,712, an increase of over 400 percent.”

  7. Public enemy number one is not a human but an inanimate object .
    So the next time someone puts a hole in your head dont blame the guy pulling the trigger.

  8. NBC also wants you to believe that a man pretending to be a woman on the women’s swim team isn’t masculine, so they airbrushed him to hide it. And they want to lecture us about misinformation. NBC is worse than CNN.

  9. Are we not going to talk about the vast majority of P80s and guns in general in crime scenes are stolen?
    I’m still confused though, how does a serial number stop guns from being used by criminals? Do they taze the lad when he picks it up? How does that work? What about the pipe shutguns you make from hardware stores?
    At the end of the day we still have unserialized knives and hammers running a muck!!
