Board Bill No. 106 Votes | Session 2019-2020

Gun Background Check

An ordinance establishing reporting requirements for dealers selling firearms to report failures of a background check system when a firearm purchase is denied within the limits of the City of St. Louis. In 2018, there were 1,419 aggravated assaults with a firearm in the City of St. Louis. To date, there have been more than 1,700 aggravated assaults with a firearm in the City. The increased use of guns and the flow of illegal guns into the City has negatively impacted the overall safety of the residents. Additionally, the State of Missouri does not require a background check prior to the transfer of a firearm between unlicensed parties. The State also does not require firearms dealers to obtain a state license. In Missouri, all firearm transfers by licensed dealers are processed directly through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. If an applicant fails the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, there are no reporting requirements regarding the failed background check. This ordinance creates reporting requirements for those instances.
