House File 2960 would force private sales at gun shows to go through background checks. Gun prohibitionists, like Representative Paymar, falsely claim that a large number of criminals get their guns from gun shows; however, the most recent federal study on gun shows put the figure at only 0.7 percent. This effort is a stepping stone for gun control advocates seeking to ban all private sales, even among family and friends.
HF2960 has been assigned to the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Sub-Committee. The Sub-Committee will meet Friday, March 5 at 8:30 a.m. to consider the bill.
Please contact the members of the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Sub-Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose HF2960. Contact the following members listed below.
