The federal government is prohibited by law from creating a gun ownership database, but it’s unclear whether state & local governments can use federal funds to create such databases. This bill would clarify that no federal dollars can be used to fund a gun ownership database.
Existing federal law already prohibits the storage of information acquired during the firearms background check process. Storing legal gun owners’ information in a database would treat them like criminals just for exercising their Second Amendment rights.
