A northern Virginia Republican is
sponsoring the measure.


It would require unlicensed
sellers to run criminal background
checks on all buyers... currently only
licensed dealers fall under the
requirement.

Supporters cite an increase in
violent crimes- including school
shootings.

Opponents say the bill puts too
much of a burden on private sellers who
would have to pay a fee for the
background checks.

Supporters say they'll keep
pushing the bill until it passes.
