TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida would require background checks before weapons could be sold at gun shows and would require private gun transactions be documented under a bill unanimously approved by a Senate committee. The Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee approved the bill Monday. The legislation also would require health care professionals tell law enforcement if they believe a patient is threatening to carry out a violent act that would seriously harm or kill someone. The bill also would ban sales of weapons in public, including gun shows and flea markets, unless a criminal background check was completed.
