HB 650 (2015) requiring background checks for commercial firearms sales.
House/Senate Bill: House
Description: Requires background checks for all firearms sales, including sales at gun shows. This bill includes an exemption for private sales between individuals, provided that both parties in the transaction are legally allowed to own firearms. If the status of either party’s eligibility to possess a firearm cannot be ascertained, the bill still requires a background check through a licensed firearm dealer, who can in turn charge a fee for the background check.
