Bill Summary

This Act creates an application process to obtain a handgun qualified purchaser card, to authorize the purchase of a handgun, or a firearms qualified purchaser card, to authorize the purchase of firearms other than a handgun. This Act then requires licensed importers, manufacturers, or dealers, as well as unlicensed persons, to require an individual to present the individual’s handgun qualified purchaser card or firearms qualified purchaser card before selling or transferring a firearm. In addition, similar to Delaware's concealed carry permit law, this Act requires an applicant to have completed a firearms training course within 2 years before the date of application. Finally, this Act sends to law-enforcement information that is already collected at the time of sale, and required under federal law to be made available to law-enforcement. This change will aid law-enforcement in criminal investigations they already conduct.
