Transfer of firearms; criminal records check; penalties.  Adds a definition of "firearms show vendor" and requires that a criminal history record information check be performed on the prospective transferee before the vendor may transfer firearms at a gun show. Under current law, only licensed dealers must obtain such a check. The bill also requires that the promoter of a gun show provide vendors with access to licensed dealers who will conduct the criminal history record information check.
