Proposed Federal Senate Legislation SB4068

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

The bill sounds good to the feel good movement but ultimately removes any timeliness to the already beleaguered "background check" system and further infringes on the right to bear arms.

Legislation Overview

Title: Background Check Completion Act of 2020

Subject: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Background Check Completion Act of 2020 This bill prohibits a licensed gun dealer from transferring a firearm to an unlicensed person prior to the completion of a background check. Current law permits a licensed gun dealer to transfer a firearm to an unlicensed person if a submitted background check remains incomplete after three business days.

Session: 116th Congress

Last Action: Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

Last Action Date: June 25, 2020
