2011 House Bill 5225

House Roll Call 433: Passed

To repeal the law that prohibits purchasing a pistol unless a person gets a "purchase permit" from local police. The bill would also require police departments to destroy the records they have accumulated under this law. Federal law already requires gun sellers to perform an "instant background check" on the buyer using a federal database.
