Proposed Federal House Legislation HB2871

this is an anti-gun bill
Legislation Overview

Title: Keeping Guns From Criminals Act

Subject: Criminal investigation, prosecution, interrogation: Criminal justice information and records: Firearms and explosives: Licensing and registrations: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Keeping Guns From Criminals Act This bill amends the federal criminal code to modify the criminal liability standard for certain firearm sales or transfers. Current law makes it a crime for any person to knowingly sell or transfer a firearm to a prohibited person (i.e., a person who is prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm). This legislation eliminates the "knowingly" standard to impose criminal liability on any person who sells or transfers a firearm to a prohibited person, regardless of whether such seller or transferor knows that the buyer is a prohibited person.

Session: 114th Congress

Last Action: Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations.

Last Action Date: July 9, 2015
