Found this on another and linked to Washington Times Federal Register: https://www.federalregister.gov/art...onal-instant-criminal-background-check-system Here is the location of the pdf for National Instant Criminal Background Check System: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/search?conditions[regulation_id_number]=1110-AA27 Page 2 of the PDF: Proposal #1: Accessing Records in the System (28 CFR 25.6(j)(1)) Proposal #2: Accessing Records in the System (28 CFR 25.6(j)(3)) Proposal #3. Storage Location of NICS Audit Log Records Relating to Denied Transactions (28 CFR 25.9(b)(1)(i)) The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act mandated the national background check system. It provides that, before a federal firearms licensee may transfer a firearm to a non-licensee, the dealer must first check the system database to see if the proposed buyer is disqualified from receiving firearms. That’s all the system does. It records neither the names of purchasers nor the names of individuals who have been denied firearms as a result of a database check. Access to the data is also limited to licensed dealers and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Holder seeks to change all that with a rules change rather than modifying the statute already on the books. Holder’s changes would make available National Instant Criminal Background Check System records of unqualified firearm purchasers to all law enforcement agencies, and they would retain a record of those individuals who requested but were denied a firearm purchase. Although he’s not attempting a federal gun registration program per se, it’s getting awfully close. If he can record the names of those denied guns, he can just as easily record the names of those who passed the check — and presumably bought a firearm. And firearm registration is the first step toward confiscation. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jan/28/holder-moves-gun-control/ Not waiting for Congress to act, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is moving on gun control, submitting three measures Monday to increase data sharing and data collection on firearms and potential gun purchasers — and illustrating the limitations President Obama's administration has to act unilaterally on the issue. 1. The first of Mr. Holder’s proposals would expand access to information on gun permits to Indian tribal law enforcement agencies 2. Would allow local law enforcement to access the FBI’s national criminal database to conduct background checks on people they’re transferring weapons to 3. Would authorize the FBI to maintain records on denied firearms transactions in a separate database for longer than 10 years. “These proposed changes are intended to promote public safety, to enhance the efficiency of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) operations, and to resolve difficulties created by unforeseen processing conflicts within the system,” Holder wrote in his submissions to the register, according to The Times.
