Rep. Harris filed a bill called H.B. 1503 CREATING THE OFFENSE OF UNLAWFUL PROCUREMENT OF A FIREARM OR AMMUNITION.
(b) A person commits the offense of unlawful procurement of a firearm or ammunition if he or she knowingly:
(1) Solicits, persuades, encourages, or entices a licensed dealer or private seller to transfer a firearm or ammunition under unlawful circumstances; or
(2) Provides false information to a licensed dealer or private seller with a purpose to deceive the licensed dealer or private seller concerning the lawfulness of a transfer of a firearm or ammunition.
