  • Penalties for States that do not make “prohibited person” data electronically available to NICS
  • Requires Federal court information be made available to NICS
  • Defines Federal standards for mental defectives (you really have to read it to understand that now everyone who has a therapist is a prohibited person)
  • Requires background checks for every firearm sale (defacto registration)
  • Requires all transfers go through an FFL
