- Bill: VA SB 1164 - Requires Background Checks for Gun Transfers, Mandates that Police Establish Process for Transferors to Obtain Check from FFL
- Position: Opposed
Author: Sen. Richard Saslaw (D-35)
SB 1164 would require a background check for any firearm transfer and further require the Department of State Police to establish a process for transferors of firearms to obtain such a check from licensed firearms dealers. It would also provide that a transferor who fails to obtain a required background check and sells the firearm to another person is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
