Five Democrat Senators sent a joint letter to UPS and 27 other mail carriers that effectively blamed them for America’s rising crime rates.

Democrat Senators Edward Markey (D-MA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Christopher Murphy (D-CT), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

“We are concerned that lax shipping security measures are contributing to the epidemic of gun violence in this country by allowing criminals to use stolen firearms to commit crimes,” the letter reads. This comes after UPS started terminating the accounts of gun dealers.

As reported in Ammoland:

United Parcel Service is terminating the accounts of gun dealers. Any packages currently in the UPS system may be “seized and destroyed.”

In a letter sent to one Florida gun dealer, Ghost Firearms, UPS said they were terminating the account because they “may be violating” laws concerning homemade firearm parts.

“We write to inform you that UPS has learned that your company may be violating applicable laws concerning the shipment of “ghost guns” to unauthorized locations,” the letter states. “In light of our concern, UPS has determined that it will cancel your account, effective immediately.”

Ghost’s owner, Joe Zatar was told all scheduled pickups will be canceled, and that he cannot reopen another UPS account or ship anything from a UPS store or website.
