This is the November 15, 2011 hearing before the United States Senate, Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism entitled "The Fix Gun Checks Act: Better State and Federal Compliance, Smarter Enforcement." From the statement of David Cuthbertson: "During the last three years, a great deal of progress has been made toward fully implementing the NIAA [NICS Improvement Amendments Act] . Much work through intense outreach, training, and information sharing has enhanced state and federal awareness of the importance of making relevant information available to the NICS. The overall number of records submitted to the NICS [National Instant Criminal Background Check System] Index since the passage of the NIAA has improved; however, the improvements are not spread equally across the board. Although deficits in funding may continue to be an issue across many state, local, tribal, and federal agencies, it is anticipated that through our Department's continued outreach and with the support from the federal government and the NIAA partnering agencies will help the local, state, tribal, and federal agencies move closer to the NIAA's goal of closing the gaps in the information available to the NICS." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David Cuthbertson, John Feinblatt, Heather Anderson, Patricia Maisch, and David Kopel.
