In June 2012, the Task Force to Study Access of Individuals with Mental Illness to Regulated Firearms was established (Chapter 131, Acts of 2012). The Task Force studied whether current State laws and policies concerning access of individuals with a history of mental illness to regulated firearms are adequate or need to be changed. Also, current laws and policies relating to access of law enforcement officers to mental health records were examined, and whether access to those records should be expanded was considered.

On January 2, 2013, the Task Force submitted its report to the Governor and General Assembly. Authorization for the Task Force ended May 31, 2013.
