COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's Tim Scott is among the sponsors of a bipartisan legislation.

That legislation is to ensure federal agencies and state governments accurately report relevant criminal history to the FBI's database of prohibited gun buyers.

The Republican senator is one of more than half a dozen sponsors of the "Fix NICS Act," which would penalize federal agencies that fail to properly report required records.
