Pennsylvania: “Universal” Background Check Bill Introduced in the General Assembly

Recently, House Bill 1400, legislation which would expand background checks to include all private sales and transfers, was introduced in the Keystone state.  Sponsored by state Representative James Santora (R-163), HB 1400 would require an individual to seek a licensed firearm dealer to conduct a criminal background check prior to purchasing or transferring a firearm to another individual, including purchases at gun shows.  Additionally, an individual would have to obtain 72-hour background check approval if the individual wanted to make more than one purchase without having to pay for multiple background checks.
