(This amendment relates to proposed legislation regarding the purchase of firearms at gun shows. Under the proposed legislation any party to a firearm transaction at a firearms show would have the option to ask the Department of State Police to determine if a prospective purchaser or transferee is prohibited from possessing a firearm. This determination would be made in accordance with the procedures set out in § 18.2-308.2:2. Under § 18.2-308.2:2, making a materially false statement on a consent form that is required to purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer is a Class 5 felony. Any person who willfully and intentionally sells, rents, trades, or transfers a firearm in violation of § 18.2-308.2:2 is guilty of a Class 6 felony. The amendment provides funding for the additional correctional bed space that would be required for anyone convicted of violating § 18.2-308.2:2 based upon firearm sales or transfers at a firearms show. )
