Proposed Federal Senate Legislation SB529

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

Background checks are ineffective at best, a waste of tax dollars on ineffective systems, and an infringement on law abiding citizens' rights. Yet another way to tax firearms multiple times. Financial harassment.

Legislation Overview

Title: Background Check Expansion Act

Subject: Crime and law enforcement: Crime prevention: Criminal justice information and records: Firearms and explosives: Government information and archives: Licensing and registrations

Description: Establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties (i.e., unlicensed individuals). Specifically, it prohibits a firearm transfer between private parties unless a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first takes possession of the firearm to conduct a background check. The prohibition does not apply to certain firearm transfers, such as a gift between spouses in good faith.
