Bill Text:

Current law provides that, before a federally licensed firearms dealer may
transfer a handgun after a sale, the dealer must request that the Department of
Justice perform a background check on the prospective purchaser to determine if the
purchaser is prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal or state law.
This bill prohibits the dealer from transferring the handgun to the purchaser
until 48 hours have passed since the firearms dealer requested the background check
on the purchaser.
