Make gun-trafficking a federal crime

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand held a press conference today to introduce new legislation:

“… Gillibrand visited the Uniondale Public Library Monday to stand with advocates and survivors of gun violence and announce the reintroduction of the Hadiya Pendleton and Nyasia Pryear-Yard Gun Trafficking & Crime Prevention Act.  “I am proud to announce my legislation to make gun-trafficking a federal crime, and I urge all of my colleagues to join me in fighting to pass this essential bill, as well as two other pieces of legislation that would protect families in New York …” …  The bill would make it illegal to sell purchase, or transfer two or more firearms to someone whom the seller knows, or has reasonable cause to know, is a felon or convicted domestic abuser.  The bill would also make it illegal to provide false information on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives firearms transaction record form …”

She had company at the presser:

The bills are not yet online so I’m not sure exactly what they do, but I’m pretty sure lying on a 4473 is already a felony. Maybe she’s making it a double, secret felony.
