Company accused of 'ghost guns' distribution agrees to pay $70K to NJ
A company accused of distributing "ghost guns" will write a check to New Jersey.
U.S. Patriot Armory will pay the state $70,000, and has also agreed to stop shipping the untraceable guns.
The State Attorney General's Office sued the company for advertising and marketing the guns to residents.
The company also shipped an assault firearms kit to someone in the state.
The marketing and advertising, as well as the shipping of "ghost guns" is illegal under current state law.
New Jersey's Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said in a statement, "Protecting New Jerseyans is one of my primary responsibilities as chief law enforcement officer, and to do that, we must keep untraceable firearms off our streets."
