Bill Title: Concerning requirements for the purchase or transfer of firearms.
Committee: Law and Justice SENATE
Companion Bill: SB 5211
AN ACT Relating to enhancing requirements for the purchase or transfer of firearms by requiring a permit to purchase firearms, firearms safety training, and a 10-day waiting period, prohibiting firearms transfers prior to completion of a background check, and updating and creating consistency in firearms transfer and background check procedures;
What the Bill says:
The individual wishing to purchase ANY firearm will have to wait 10 days minimum, have gone through safety training every 5 years, and must consent to their background check including the invasion of their medical records privacy.
Our Summary Opinion:
It removes any and all personal privacy regarding medical health. It tracks weapons purchased by anyone and records those records in a state police data base which is currently not legal. It lengthens the waiting period for the access to any weapon purchased.
