Depends on the paint, most sating or flat paints will paint right over, a gloss paint often needs a light scratch, you can test a corner to see how it sticks. But...... it's always best to have primer then paint, so, if you have the time & money, sand it lightly then primer...... dry..... paint.....dry.... recoat.....dry.... polish with carnuba wax, Meguires preferably.
Edit: I rarely strip paint. I have 2 kinds of stripper, I've used it once. If it will scratch with sandpaper it's usually enough to make primer stick.
