Passed 27 to 11 in the Senate on December 12, 2012, to repeal the law that prohibits purchasing a pistol from a federally licensed dealer unless a person gets a "purchase permit" from local police, but leave this requirement in place for person-to-person sales. Federal law already requires gun sellers to perform an "instant background check" on the buyer using a federal database.
