Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to lengthen the window to complete a background check to ten business days. The bill is designed to close "the Charleston Loophole" where the murderer was able to purchase firearms when a federal background check failed to find a prior conviction within the current three day window allowed for completion of the check. Five African-American parishioners were murdered in their Charleston, S.C. church in 2015. The bill now goes to the Senate. GOFRO supports this approach to strengthen the background check system.
