Firearm Background Checks Now Include Personal Addresses

The NICS system is known for being notoriously unreliable, falsely denying law-abiding citizens from their 2nd Amendment rights 9 out of 10 times...

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A leaked email from the Federal Bureau of Investigation has released a new rule requiring federal firearms licensees to provide home addresses of customers who fail a background check to the authorities.

According to Gun Owners of America, who originally received the email, one of the new features of the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System is connected to the NICS Denial Notification Act of 2022.

“The NICS Denial Notification Act of 2022 requires the FBI’s NICS Section to notify state, local, or tribal law enforcement of all FBI NICS denied transactions within 24 hours, ” the email reads. “The FBI Must provide notification to law enforcement based upon the location of the FFL and if different, the purchaser’s address.”

This change, per the NICS Denial Notification Act, would require that an investigation be launched into every background check denial. However, the NICS system is known for being notoriously unreliable, falsely denying law-abiding citizens from their 2nd Amendment rights 9 out of 10 times.

Before the Act passed, dealers were only required to provide the state of residence of a customer, as opposed to the full address.

The NICS system processes the background check in the event of a delay or denial, which are normal for people with common names or having security clearances with the federal government.

The NICS Denial Notification Act was among some of the gun control legislation passed in congress’s most recent term.

Eighteen Republican senators sided with Democrats in favor of the final passage of this law.

The Denial Notification Act not only requires criminal investigations into firearm background check denials—despite the high rate of false denials—but it also provides funding for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to deputize local police to enforce federal gun laws.

States that passed the Second Amendment Protection Act will also be liable to these laws and their enforcement by local police.
