Section 1) Require universal background checks a) With an exception made for firearms passed between family members, all gun sales will require a background check. Any background checks that come back with a "red tag" (more on red tags in Section 4) will mean that the person being checked is not allowed to purchase a firearm. b) No "gun show loophole". The background check rule will apply to any and all gun sales, except for sales between family members as mentioned in Section 1a. c) Since the cost of background checks can be expensive (depending on the state), the cost for background checks would be higher for professional dealers, but a smaller fee would be charged for amateur folk who are selling a firearm. Section 2) Establish Federal Gun Registry, and create "gun titles" a) A registry will be established at the federal level. Serial numbers of ALL firearms sold after the rule takes effect will be entered into the Federal Gun Registry. b) In addition to this, firearms will now come with a "gun title", akin to car titles. These gun titles will tie a specific firearm to a specific owner. c) Whenever a licensed gun dealer sells a firearm, they will be required to transfer the gun title from themselves to the buyer. When purchasing used firearms, licensed gun dealers will be required to transfer gun titles from the seller to themselves. d) Personal, unlicensed gun sales (if allowed by your state) would not REQUIRE an official transfer of gun title ownership, though it would be in the best interest of the seller to ensure such a transfer takes place. This will make it easier to track any firearm used in a crime to its last legal owner. It would also encourage people who lose their firearm or have them stolen to report the loss/theft quickly to authorities. Section 3) Require gun dealers to keep track of their inventory a) All licensed gun dealers will be required to take an inventory of their stock once per year, and report any and all missing (or unaccounted for) firearms to authorities. Section 4) Red tags a) There will be four main mechanisms by which an individual can receive a "red tag", which would mean an automatic fail of any background check: i) A person is convicted of a violent crime. ii) A personal is deemed a danger to themselves or others by a mental health professional. iii) A person has an active protective order against them. iv) Law enforcement at either the state or federal level has shown that a person poses an imminent threat. Law enforcement would be REQUIRED to get a judge to approve the red tag, much as law enforcement must get a judge to approve a search warrant. The red tag would only be valid for a reasonable, predetermined period of time, at which point law enforcement would have to show cause for continuing the red tag, and a judge would have to re-approve it. b) A red tag can be taken off of a person's record in a number of ways, depending on how they received it: i) The violent crime they were convicted of is overturned or expunged. ii) A follow-up with mental health professionals leads to a new assessment that the person is mentally fit and no longer a danger. iii) A protective order is lifted or expires. iv) Law enforcement decides that the person is no longer an threat, or cannot show cause for a judge to re-approve the red tag after the initial "red tag period" has ended. Also, an individual with such a red tag would be able to argue for its removal in court.
