Firearm Background Check

If you would like to own a firearm you will need to submit to firearm background check. These background checks are required by law and are part of the very controversial Brady Act. As a pat of the Brady Act, the justice department was required to create the National Instant Background Check System, also known as NICS. This is an instant background check system that can be accessed and used by licensed firearms dealers. The information that is obtained through this firearm background check service is supplied by the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies.

What the Firearm Background Check Will Show

The firearm background check will pull up any and all records on an individual. There are a lot of people who will not be able to pass the background check so that they can legally carry or buy a firearm. The persons who will be prohibited from purchasing a firearm include:

  • Convicted felons and people under indictment for a felony
  • Fugitives
  • Unlawful drug users or drug addicts
  • Those who have been involuntarily committed to a mental institution
  • Those who are mentally incompetent in the eyes of the court
  • Individuals who have been dishonorably discharged from the military
  • Those that have renounced their American citizenship
  • People who have domestic violence restraining orders
  • Those who have been convicted of violent crimes or domestic violence

If any of these stipulations apply to you, you can rest assured that you will not be able to buy a firearm legally. A firearm background check is required if you want to purchase a rifle, shotgun, handgun, or both. If you are denied you have the opportunity to appeal, but you won’t be able to buy a firearm on the spot, instead you will need to send in your appeal form via mail and wait for a response. Like any background check, it is possible for a firearm background check to have incorrect information contained within it. If this is the case, you may need to hire a lawyer to help you remove inaccurate records from your records so that you can go on to get your firearm.

The firearm background check is something that is very controversial. Many people don’t think it should be necessary, but the government has enacted the law to try to help keep people safe and to have some sort of control over who has access to guns and who does not. Chances are the background checks and background check laws around firearms will be amended several times in the future.
