The House of Representative passed HR38 which includes the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (CCR) and the Fix NICS Act.
The CCR act will allow legally licensed concealed carry in any state that issues permits regardless of which state issued a permit. This will make it easier to travel with a lawfully concealed firearm.
The Fix NICS legislation is designed to make sure NICS contains updated disqualifying information so that firearm purchase background checks are correct.

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.
