House Passes Universal Background Checks Legislation

Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the "Bipartisan Background Checks Act" which requires a background check on all sales/transfers of firearms including at gun shows and internet sales.  There are exceptions for family members and temporary transfers during hunting or at shooting ranges.  GOFRO has long supported universal background checks at the State and National levels.
