Transfers of Firearms: Requires transfers of firearms when neither party is licensed dealer to be conducted through licensed dealer & requires processing by licensed dealer. (Text)
Same old annoying bill. besides busting balls, it is a left-handed gun registration scheme.
It has never been about checking backgrounds, if it were the bill would simply allow the members to check with a Licensed Dealer and run a background check without having to log anything in the books. No gun owner wants to sell a gun to a possible violent criminal and we would welcome having access (for a fee) to a quick and easy background check.
PS: Did you know you can get updates via email on any bill you want? Look in the House and Senate sites for “tracking” in the main menu and register. After that is just clicking on the tracking button for the individual bills,
