Firearm Background-Checks Now Report Home Addresses Of Gun Owners

On Monday, September 26, 2022, federal firearms licensees (FFL) will experience… new features of the FBI's NICS transaction process. One… change is tied to the passage of the NICS Denial Notification Act of 2022. 

Collection of Buyer's Address— 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 FBI must provide notification to law enforcement based upon the location of the FFL and if different, the purchaser's address. To support the determination of what local agency should receive the notification, FFLs will be required to provide the buyer's complete address to NICS as recorded on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Form 4473 when transactions are denied or delayed. The address information will be required before the status can be provided or retrieved either by the NICS contracted call center or via the NICS E-Check.  

That matches up closely with the NICS Denial notification act, which read: 

"If the national instant criminal background check system…provides notice… that" a transferee is prohibited person then the DOJ shall "report to the local law enforcement [and] the State or Tribe of residence of the person—… within 24 hours"  

This change would require that an investigation be launched into every background check denial, even though nine times out of 10, the NICS system has falsely denied law-abiding citizens from exercising their rights.  

This is a significant change to the system, as, before the passage of the NICS denial notification act, dealers were only required to provide the state of residence of a customerNow they will have to provide the transferee's full address after the NICS system processes the background check in the event of a delay or denial.
