    5         Section 7. Present subsection (13) of section 790.065,
    6  Florida Statutes, is redesignated as subsection (14), a new
    7  subsection (13) is added to that section, and subsection (1) of
    8  that section is amended, to read:
    9         790.065 Sale and delivery of firearms.—
   10         (1)(a) A licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or
   11  licensed dealer may not sell or deliver from her or his
   12  inventory at her or his licensed premises any firearm to another
   13  person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer,
   14  licensed dealer, or licensed collector, until she or he has:
   15         1. Obtained a completed form from the potential buyer or
   16  transferee, which form shall have been promulgated by the
   17  Department of Law Enforcement and provided by the licensed
   18  importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer, which shall
   19  include the name, date of birth, gender, race, and social
   20  security number or other identification number of such potential
   21  buyer or transferee and has inspected proper identification
   22  including an identification containing a photograph of the
   23  potential buyer or transferee.
   24         2. Collected a fee from the potential buyer for processing
   25  the criminal history check of the potential buyer. The fee shall
   26  be established by the Department of Law Enforcement and may not
   27  exceed $8 per transaction. The Department of Law Enforcement may
   28  reduce, or suspend collection of, the fee to reflect payment
   29  received from the Federal Government applied to the cost of
   30  maintaining the criminal history check system established by
   31  this section as a means of facilitating or supplementing the
   32  National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The
   33  Department of Law Enforcement shall, by rule, establish
   34  procedures for the fees to be transmitted by the licensee to the
   35  Department of Law Enforcement. All such fees shall be deposited
   36  into the Department of Law Enforcement Operating Trust Fund, but
   37  shall be segregated from all other funds deposited into such
   38  trust fund and must be accounted for separately. Such segregated
   39  funds must not be used for any purpose other than the operation
   40  of the criminal history checks required by this section. The
   41  Department of Law Enforcement, each year prior to February 1,
   42  shall make a full accounting of all receipts and expenditures of
   43  such funds to the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the
   44  House of Representatives, the majority and minority leaders of
   45  each house of the Legislature, and the chairs of the
   46  appropriations committees of each house of the Legislature. In
   47  the event that the cumulative amount of funds collected exceeds
   48  the cumulative amount of expenditures by more than $2.5 million,
   49  excess funds may be used for the purpose of purchasing soft body
   50  armor for law enforcement officers.
   51         3. Requested, by means of a toll-free telephone call, the
   52  Department of Law Enforcement to conduct a check of the
   53  information as reported and reflected in the Florida Crime
   54  Information Center and National Crime Information Center systems
   55  as of the date of the request.
   56         4. Received a unique approval number for that inquiry from
   57  the Department of Law Enforcement, and recorded the date and
   58  such number on the consent form.
   59         (b) However, if the person purchasing, or receiving
   60  delivery of, the firearm is a holder of a valid concealed
   61  weapons or firearms license pursuant to the provisions of s.
   62  790.06 or holds an active certification from the Criminal
   63  Justice Standards and Training Commission as a “law enforcement
   64  officer,” a “correctional officer,” or a “correctional probation
   65  officer” as defined in s. 943.10(1), (2), (3), (6), (7), (8), or
   66  (9), this subsection does not apply.
   67         (c) This subsection does not apply to the purchase, trade,
   68  or transfer of a rifle or shotgun by a resident of this state
   69  when the resident makes such purchase, trade, or transfer from a
   70  licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer in
   71  another state.
