Fatal Gaps

See how many mental health records your state has submitted.

Every day, 31 Americans are murdered and 56 people kill themselves with guns. Too often, the people pulling the trigger were able to arm themselves because of gaps in our background check system.

We can only stop people with dangerous mental illness from buying guns if every gun sale includes a background check. And those background checks will only be effective if states submit the hundreds of thousands of mental health records still missing from the system. Every missing record is another tragedy waiting to happen.
