A background check system is only as good as the records in the database. FBI NICS databases are currently incomplete because some states have not provided all records that show someone is prohibited from owning a firearm under current law, especially including mental health adjudications and involuntary commitments orders. Including these missing records will help ensure more accurate and complete background checks. The firearms industry’s ongoing FixNICS® campaign was launched in 2013, and the work continues to keep guns out of the wrong hands.
