I found this on info on it - Dont know if it is correct.

This bill was never brought to vote. It was referred to the Homeland Security Committee on Crime and Terrorism and apparently it never was sent out for a vote.

I don't know why this was recently brought to the forefront, but it is an old post and there is a new HR 1475. I just want people to be aware. When I googled HR 1475, I got:
Gun Trafficking Prevention Act of 2017

This bill amends the federal criminal code to make trafficking in firearms a crime. Specifically, it prohibits:

purchasing or transferring a firearm with the intent to deliver it to a prohibited person;
providing false or misleading material information in connection with a firearm purchase or transfer; and
directing, promoting, or facilitating such prohibited conduct.
The prohibition does not apply to a firearm lawfully acquired to give as a gift or lawfully received as a gift.

A person who commits a gun trafficking offense is subject to a prison term of up to 20 years (or 25 years if such person also acted as an organizer). A person who conspires to commit a gun trafficking offense is subject to a prison term of up to 10 years.

The U.S. Sentencing Commission must review and, if appropriate, amend the sentencing guidelines and policy statements that apply to persons convicted of trafficking in firearms.
