|Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) introduced H.R. 4434, the Fix NICS Act to encourage and incentivize states to enter all applicable disqualifying records into the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and help provide states the resources to do so. H.R. 4434 would also require federal agencies to properly report relevant records and hold those who fail to do so accountable.|
There are currently several states and some federal agencies withholding disqualifying records that would help prevent prohibited persons under current law from possessing firearms. Federal Firearms License holders rely upon the NICS to be accurate in order to prevent the sale and transfer of firearms to prohibited persons.
Please take this opportunity to email or call today to urge your U.S. Representative to cosponsor H.R. 4434, the Fix NICS Act of 2017.
