On Monday, Montana Governor Steve Bullock and other governors from around the country met with President Donald Trump to discuss the issue of guns and school safety. During his brief time at the microphone, Bullock asked the president to work on adding new elements to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System or NICS.
“We can improve the instant check system,” Bullock said. “We also know that about a quarter of the guns that are sold don’t even get into that system… so… a universal background check. We know that ten percent of our homicides each year are in intimate relationships… so making sure the orders of protection, the domestic violence: making sure that’s in NICS.
