Loosen restrictions on interstate gun purchases.
Hatch co-sponsored Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act
Amends the federal criminal code to:
allow licensed firearms dealers to sell or deliver any firearm (currently, rifles or shotguns) toany state if the licensee meets with the purchaser and the transaction complies with the laws of the state in which the transfer is conducted and the purchaser's state of residence; and
eliminate the requirement that a licensee must conduct business at a gun show only in the statethat is specified on the licensee's license.
Nothing in this Act shall prohibit the sale of a firearm or ammunition between licensedfirearms dealers at any location in any state.
Proponent's Comments (NRA-ILA, Oct. 14, 2011):
This bill would remove several antiquated andunnecessary restrictions imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968:
Virtually all interstate transfers directly between private citizens are banned; so are nearly allinterstate handgun sales by licensed dealers.
Firearms dealers may only do business at their licensed premises or (since 1986) at gunshows in their own state.
Dealers may not even transfer firearms to one another face to face, away from their businesspremises.
