Urge them to support the Fix NICS Act S.2135

Federally licensed firearms retailers rely upon NICS to be accurate in order to prevent the sale and transfer of firearms to prohibited persons. President Trump has called on Congress to address the deficiencies in the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) System.

NSSF government relations staff has learned that the U.S. Senate could be voting on the Fix NICS Act, S.2135, as early as this week. This important legislation, which is a top priority of NSSF, will condition federal grants to states to incentivize them to submit disqualifying records into the NICS database, while punishing agencies who fail to do so.

Email and call your two U.S. Senators at 202.224.3121 and urge them to support this important bipartisan bill.
