SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Sale, purchase, possession, and transport of firearms; Terrorist Screening Database. Prohibits a person who knows or has reason to know that he is in the federal Terrorist Screening Database of the Terrorist Screening Center administered by the FBI (the Database) from purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm. The bill disqualifies any person in the Database from obtaining a concealed handgun permit. The bill prohibits selling firearms to any person in the Database and requires dealers to obtain a Database check before transferring a firearm. The bill requires State Police to consult with the Terrorist Screening Center to determine if a potential firearm purchaser is in the Database. A second enactment clause provides that the bill will not go into effect unless the U.S. Department of Justice approves the policies and procedures set out in the bill.
