Took a look at the bill... this really is a dumb idea.
B. Any person, not a dealer, selling, transferring, or trading a firearm to a dealer shall present a valid photo identification issued by a state or federal governmental agency and shall consent in writing, on a form to be provided by the Department, to have the dealer obtain a verification check to determine if the firearm has been reported to a law-enforcement agency as lost or stolen. Such form shall include only the written consent; the name, address, birth date, gender, race, and verifiable government identification number on the photo identification presented by the person selling, transferring, or trading the firearm; and, the serial number, caliber, make, and ,if available, model of the firearm.
Clearly a Fourth Amendment violation, since "selling a gun to a dealer" cannot be probable cause to run a stolen records search on a firearm.
If this passes, look for the supply of used guns in Virginia to diminish, why would anyone want to submit to such a search?
