Guns that go unaccounted for and untraceable have affected the population we serve for too long. Emerging weapons such as “ghost guns”, are known to bypass traditional methods of firearm safety and gun purchase accountability. SB 221 would add a tremendous protective layer of safety, transparency and accountability.
The bill would require agency employees to report to the agency lost or stolen firearms owned by the agency, or used or carried by an employee within the course of employment that are not owned by the agency, within 5 days of the date they know or reasonably should have known that the firearms were lost or stolen. The bill would require that firearms that are lost, stolen, or otherwise disposed of be entered into the AFS. By imposing additional duties on local law enforcement agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
In effort to promote safer communities and transparent gun ownership, a sufficient system proposed in SB 221 would help eliminate thousands of lost or stolen firearms.
