Sending Office: Honorable Sheila Jackson Lee
Accidental Firearms Transfers Reporting Act of 2017
Cosponsors (6): Steve Cohen; Darren Soto; Al Green; David N. Cicilline; Alcee L. Hastings; Eleanor Holmes Norton
I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H.R. 57, the “Accidental Firearms Transfers Reporting Act of 2017”
This bill requires the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to submit a biannual report to Congress on the number of proposed firearm transfers where:
(1) a licensed gun dealer submitted a background check through the National Instant Criminal History Background Check System (NICS),
(2) NICS failed to respond to the licensed gun dealer within three business days, and
(3) the licensed gun dealer completed the transfer.
The FBI must also report on the procedures followed once the transferee is discovered to be ineligible.
I urge you to support this effort and co-sponsor H.R. 57. Accordingly, please contact Lillie Coney at Lillie.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-225-3816 to co-sponsor this legislation.
Very Truly Yours,
Sheila Jackson Lee
Member of Congress
