    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Recently, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) co-introduced legislation to protect Second Amendment rights, improve firearm safety, and prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands. The Protecting Communities and Preserving the Second Amendment Act of 2021 prevents gun violence by ensuring that relevant agencies and institutions accurately submit records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

    Full text of the bill can be found HERE, section-by-section HERE, and a one-page summary HERE.

    The Protecting Communities and Preserving the Second Amendment Act of 2021 will:

  • Ensure that relevant mental health records are submitted by states to NICS;
  • Responsibly addresses gun violence by criminalizing straw purchasing of firearms and gun trafficking;
  • Improve Second Amendment protections for veterans;
  • Require the Justice Department to explain to Congress why it has or has not been prosecuting gun cases;
  • Place limitations on Fast & Furious-type operations by the Justice Department;
