FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check: Overview
 
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System has been an established and aggressive plan to help improve the safety of the general public, cut down on crime, and keeps guns, weapons, and explosive materials out of the hands of those with the high risk potential to use them inappropriately.
 
FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check: Objectives
 
The objective of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is a straightforward attempt to prevent those who do not qualify for the purchase of a firearm or explosive to be able to purchase a weapon. There are state and federal requirements that a potential arms bearer must meet, and once they fail to meet those requirements, their name goes on a denial list. This list is known as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
 
FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check: Process
 
Anyone who wishes to purchase a firearm or an explosive device must first pass the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) in order to complete their purchase. While most firearms dealers still need to place a quick phone call to the NICS toll free number to complete their instant check, computer access is just around the corner.
 
Gun Background Check Denial Appeals Process
 
If you believe you have been erroneously denied a firearm transfer based on a match to a record returned by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), you may request an appeal of your deny decision.
