(This amendment relates to proposed legislation regarding criminal history record checks for the transfer of firearms to the Code of Virginia. Under the proposal, any person who transfers a firearm must first obtain verification from a licensed firearms dealer that a prospective purchaser is not prohibited from possessing a firearm under state or federal law. The proposal expands requirements relating to criminal history record checks for firearms purchases to include additional types of transfers, such as gun shows and private transfers. Under the proposal, making a materially false statement on the criminal history consent form is a Class 5 felony. Willfully and intentionally selling, renting, trading, or transferring a firearm to a person without obtaining the verification required by the proposed statute would be a Class 1 misdemeanor. The funding is provided for the additional correctional system bed space that would be required based on the felony provisions regarding the criminal history consent form.)
