2011 House Bill 5225

Senate Roll Call 877: Passed

To repeal the law that prohibits purchasing a pistol from a federally licensed dealer unless a person gets a "purchase permit" from local police, but leave this requirement in place for person-to-person sales. Federal law already requires gun sellers to perform an "instant background check" on the buyer using a federal database.
