WASHINGTON -- Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, has introduced legislation that would require gun owners to obtain a 5-year federal license to "buy and possess" a firearm.

The licensing process outlined in the Federal Firearm Licensing Act would be handled by the U.S. Department of Justice.
