Mayors Against Illegal Guns Comments on Mental Health Gun Rules

by Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Mayors Against Illegal Guns submitted this comment to ATF to urge the agency to modernize its rules implementing the federal firearms prohibitions on individuals who pose a danger to themselves or others because of mental illness. The proposed rule changes would facilitate the sharing of information on the dangerously mentally ill with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, a critical tool in preventing dangerous persons from obtaining access to firearms.
