👍🏻👍🏻 Senate Bill S.875 AKA “NICS Denial Notification Act of 2019”👍🏻👍🏻
This bill would require federal authorities to notify state law enforcement within 24 hours when individuals “lie and try” to purchase firearms when they’re legally prohibited from doing so, failing a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check in the process. Under current law, in the 37 states which rely solely on the FBI to run background checks on attempted gun purchases state authorities generally aren’t aware when prohibited individuals fail background checks. (The remaining states do their own background checks using the FBI’s NICS database so state authorities can be notified and investigate.)
State law enforcement agencies should be notified when a prohibited individual tries to buy a firearm and fails an FBI background check. The FBI should notify agencies it runs background checks for.
