Yesterday the U.S. House passed a Bill sponsored by Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY). Normally I would oppose bills by McCarthy, but his bill is reasonable. As we heard, the shooter at VT shouldn't been about to acquire a firearm because he was court ordered to a hospital. Unfortunately, the NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) didn't pick up this information. Under McCarthy's pill, the NICS would be able to do so. This bill has support of the NRA http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3097. This bill moves to the Senate.
