Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D, NY, introduced H.R. 137 yesterday. No text is available but its title according to govtrack.us is "To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and require a background check for every sale. This bill seems to overlap H.R. 141, McCarthy's bill to require background checks on all firearms sales.

Residents of New York deserve having her serve them.

Lame. Anybody with a restraining or protective order (names very across states), criminal history, ect is ALREADY in there. The added part would be the background for every sale taking away hand to hand and gun show sales w/o the background. CA did this a long time ago AND the gun dealer keeps the gun 10 days while this is processed.
