Fix Gun Checks Act of 2015

• Background checks do not necessarily stop criminals from getting firearms
• Federal studies have shown that persons imprisoned for firearm crimes get firearms mostly through theft, the black market, or family members or friends
• Nearly half of illegally trafficked firearms originate with “straw purchasers”—people who pass background checks and buy firearms for criminals
• Accounts for the nonexistence of internet shopping when the Brady Bill was passed by requiring online gun sales to involve background checks
• Ensures that our laws evolve at the same pace as our technology
• Reporting missing firearms puts law enforcement on alert and may prevent future crimes
