‘No Check, No Sale’ Bill Introduced by Democratic Senators

Richard Blumenthal

With the ongoing debate over the country’s controversial firearm laws, gun control proponents Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Chris Murphy and Sen. Dianne Feinstein along with their constituents from Connecticut are  apparently tired of debating and have taken action by making plans to push for an initiative that they say will finally put an end to the “default to proceed” loophole.

The processes for procuring a firearm according to federal guidelines in all major states mandates that the firearm dealers have to wait for a “proceed” authorization that is given by the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System before transferring the firearm to its new owner. However, there will be cases where the dealer will receive a “delay” response, where they will then be given the authority to go ahead with the transfer if three business days has passed since the “delay” response.

The senators and their partners wish to end that practice by passing into law a legislation that will strip away the authority of the firearms dealer to go ahead with the transfer even if there has been no other response after three business days. The bill will then only allow a transfer by a federal firearms licensee if a successful check has been made and a “proceed” authorization is received.

“No check, no sale must be the rule – enacted as law – to close a gaping loophole spreading the epidemic of gun violence”, announced Blumenthal in a statement he made to the public. He further mentioned that waiting for more than three business days for a background check to go through is only a minor inconvenience that will be worth it in the end if it means that it would keep guns away from dangerous people.

He then proceeds to cite an example of an incident involving a “default to proceed” practice ending in violence.

“Over the past five years, 15,700 ineligible buyers have acquired guns simply because a background check could not be completed within 72 hours. One of them was Dylann Roof, who killed nine innocent churchgoers in Charleston with a gun he was ineligible to buy.”

S.2213 which was entered just last week is the legislation that has been proposed by Blumenthal and his partners which is to be part of the Background Check Completion Act. It is currently now referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.
