This bill requires a person to have a firearms purchaser identification card, a permit to purchase a handgun, or a permit to carry a handgun in order to use a firearm at a firing range. Specifically, under the provisions of this bill, the legal owner of a handgun, rifle, or shotgun may use the firearm at a firing range for the purpose of target practice, trap or skeet shooting, or competition if the person has and exhibits to the owner or operator of the firing range a firearms purchaser identification card, a permit to purchase a handgun, or a permit to carry a handgun. In addition, the person is required to provide proof of his or her identity in the form of a valid driver's license or other government-issued form of photo identification. According to the sponsor, the intent of this bill is to ensure the safety of patrons and personnel at firing ranges. As current law does not require an owner of a firearm to be supervised while using the firearm at a firing range, unlike a person who rents or borrows a firearm at a firing range, it is necessary to ensure that the person has undergone a background check prior to using the firearm at the firing range by requiring the person to have and exhibit a firearms purchaser identification card, a permit to purchase a handgun, or a permit to carry a handgun.
