We have championed strengthening the background check system and continue to advocate for improvements.
Safer communities start with Real Solutions
ENSURING SUBMITTED RECORDS ARE COMPLETE
270% INCREASE IN SUBMITTED RECORDS
A higher number of disqualifying records have been submitted to the background check system thanks to firearm industry efforts.
ADVOCATING FOR CONTINUED IMPROVEMENTS
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.
Regardless of political affiliation, the firearm industry is working with elected officials to advance true gun safety legislation.
Make sure you know the latest advances in protecting our communities by staying informed.
