Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation announced the results of their ‘FixNICS’ campaign. Their goal was to help states become reporting members of NICS, especially as related to mental health records.
NICS is the FBI’s background check system used by firearm retailers in most states. The system is only as good as the data it contains and most states were not sending information about individuals who due to their mental health status would be prohibited from owning a firearm.
