Sen. McDowell
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 RELATING TO ILLEGAL PURCHASES OF FIREARMS.
This Act raises the first offense of purchasing or obtaining a firearm for someone not legally qualified to own, possess or purchase one from a Class F to a Class E Felony. This change is to deter such "straw purchases" by making jail time more likely for the offender, and consequently, to reduce the number of people who cannot legally possess firearms but obtain them in this manner.
