NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT OF 1934 - (NFA): The federal regulation that governs the sale and possession of certain classes of firearms. Specifically the NFA covers Machine Gun, Silencer or Suppressors and Short-Barreled Rifles and Shotguns, as well as AOW's (Any Other Weapons) such as Pen and Cane Guns. Many people, including many "Gun People" state incorrectly that machine gun are illegal.  this is not true.  They and other NFA Firearms are restricted and taxed. One must pay a $200 dollar per item tax and pass a comprehensive background check as well as submit finger print cards and a passport photo to apply for a NFA Tax Stamp.  After the paper work is completed, one can own and possess a machine gun or suppressor in most states. 17 states restrict the possession and ownership of NFA items.

NATIONAL INSTANT CHECK SYSTEM (NICS): The National Instant Check System, commonly referred to as "Nicks" or Nicks Check, is a federally mandated background checking program used to verify the identity and the legal status of a potential purchaser of a firearm, prior to the purchase and transfer of the firearm.  NICS was implemented in November 1998 and is used in 24 states for all gun purchases and in 11 additional states for handgun purchases.  [States that had in place or implemented an equal to, or more stringent background check system are exempt from the Federal system or "NICS". ]

National Instant Check System

The National Instant Check System (NICS) for firearms transactions took effect on November 30th, 1998.   NICS replaces the Brady Act's five-day waiting period. The following provides answers to some of the most common questions about NICS.

What exactly is NICS?

According to the FBI, NICS "is a national database containing records of persons who are disqualified from purchasing or receiving firearms."  The NICS computer and analysis center is located in West Virginia, and the FBI is in charge of its operation.

The NICS computerized system is designed to handle most checks in less than 2 minutes and roughly 150 transactions per minute.  It will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Eastern Time, seven days a week, closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

How is NICS set up?

There are three methods of accessing checks, depending on the state in which a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder does business.  In some states, FFL's will contact NICS through a designated state point of contact (POC) for all transfers.  In some states, FFL's will perform checks by contacting the NICS Operation Center (NOC) for all transfers.  In other states, FFL's will contact their state POC for handgun transfers, and the NICS Operation Center for long gun transfers.

How will FFL's contact NICS?

FFL's are informed on how to contact NICS by BATF, which is also responsible for establishing regulations pertaining to Brady Act implementation and for clarifying permit exemption questions, depending on their state.  FFL's will contact NICS either directly by a toll-free telephone call or by online computer terminal access, or as stated above, go through their states local POC.

Will there be a fee for the background checks?

The FBI will not charge the FFL or the state agency a fee to check the NICS computer.

What are the major differences between the previous law and NICS?

Originally, Brady waiting period requirements applied only to handguns.  Under the permanent Brady provision, both handgun and long gun purchasers must be checked. Individuals with right-to-carry permits or permits-to-purchase that comply with BATF regulations and the permanent Brady law won't have to undergo a NICS check at the time of transfer in most states.

Another key change is the elimination of the pawn shop exemption. Under the new system, a background check will be required for claiming a pawned firearm.  A NICS check must be done when pawned guns are redeemed and returned to their owners after Nov. 30, 1998.  Basically, any transaction requiring a form 4473 to be filled out will be subject to a NICS check. 

NICS checks don't nullify state or local laws.  If your state, city or county has a waiting period or other requirement as a condition of owning a firearm, the NICS check does not exempt you from those obligations.

How does NICS actually work?

Once a dealer and buyer are prepared to conclude a transfer, a retailer who does NICS checks by contacting the FBI system directly by phone will do the following:

1) FFL / Dealer calls a NICS operator by toll-free number and confirms their identity with an FFL number and dealer-selected password.

2) FFL /Dealer provides the operator with the name, date-of-birth, sex and race of the potential buyer and the type of transfer, handgun or long gun.  A buyer with a common name may, at his option, provide his Social Security Number (SSN) to help speed the check.  Disclosure of your SSN is NOT required.

3) The system will check the data against its database of prohibited persons.  If there is no "hit," the sale will be approved.  The system will assign a NICS Transaction Number (NTN) to the approval.  The FFL / Dealer will log the NTN on the form 4473, and the transfer will proceed.

4) Partially completed forms 4473, where a proposed sale has been denied, will be required to be retained by the FFL per BATF regulations.

5) When a "hit" occurs, the dealer will receive instruction to delay the transaction.  A "delay" response indicates that the check turned up information that requires further review by an analyst, who will contact the dealer by return call "within a couple of hours," the FBI says.  While the law provides three business days for the FBI to respond, the FBI says that virtually every delay will be handled within a day.  If records require further investigation, the FBI may take up to three (3) days to issue either a proceed or a denial.  

There will be an appeals process for purchasers who feel they were denied in error, and dealers will be furnished with forms for this process.

My state has agreed to be a POC state for all firearms transfers.  We don't have a permit-to-purchase or a carry permit.  If I go to a gun store to buy a shotgun, what will happen?

You will fill out the BATF form 4473, and the dealer will call a contact phone number provided to them by the state. The state office will then contact NICS and check your name against its database of disqualified persons.  The state officer will receive a NICS transfer number (NTN) which will be given to the dealer, who will record that number on the form 4473.  The transfer of the firearm will be allowed if no matching record is found.  Upon completing Part B of the 4473, the transfer is considered complete, and you take title to, and possession of, your shotgun.  The state may require additional forms and may also assign a state transaction number (STN) to the transaction.

My state has a permit-to-purchase system.  What can I expect under the NICS system?

Permits that meet the criteria established by BATF will exempt purchasers from a NICS check at the point-of-sale, and handgun permits that meet the criteria will be accepted for long gun purchases.  New buyers who do not have a permit will have to undergo a NICS check, but all "permit states" have incorporated a NICS check into the permit application process as of November 30, 1998.  Also, anyone renewing his permit will undergo a NICS check at that time.

Note, however, that the exemption for permit holders only applies if the permit was issued within the past five years, and the permit process has verified that possession of a firearm by the applicant would not violate any federal or state law.

BATF's position is that "as of Nov. 30, 1998, the 'information available to' state officials will include the NICS database. Accordingly . . . permits issued on or after Nov. 30, 1998, will be valid alternatives under the permanent provisions of the Brady law only if the state officials conduct a NICS check on all permit applicants."

So, a permit holder with a permit issued more than five years prior will need to undergo a NICS check, as will new permit applicants. Permit renewal applicants will undergo a NICS check at the appropriate time as well. The state agency responsible for issuing permits can answer any questions about how these changes will be implemented.

Will "instant check" and "point-of-sale check" systems qualify as NICS alternatives?

BATF says existing state "instant check" and "point-of-sale" checks, as re-configured under NICS standards will qualify as alternatives to NICS. As of this writing, all states with pre-existing "instant check" systems have included a NICS check as part of the state system, thus meeting the federal requirement.  The change in state systems should be unnoticeable to buyers and dealers.

What does the NICS system contain that a state background check system doesn't?

NICS will provide a more extensive background check of the purchaser than systems that contain only criminal records.  NICS will include records from the Department of Defense concerning dishonorable discharges, records from the State Department regarding people who have renounced their citizenship, the applicants mental health status as applicable and other information not available in criminal records.

My qualifying state permit exempts me from NICS checks, but are there other exemptions?

Purchases of firearms that are subject to the National Firearms Act (i.e. machine guns, destructive devices, etc.) and that have been approved for transfer under 27 CFR Part 179 are not subject to a NICS check.

Purchases of firearms, for which the Secretary of the Treasury determines compliance with NICS to be impractical because of the ratio of law enforcement officers to land area of the state (less than 25 officers per 10,000 square miles) and the absence of telecommunications facilities, are also exempt.

How will state waiting periods and multiple purchases work relative to a NICS check?

Considered valid for 30 days, NICS checks may be applied to more than one firearm, provided the additional firearms are transferred as part of one transaction.  A transaction is only considered complete when Part B of the 4473 is executed, and the customer takes possession of the firearm. 

Here are some different scenarios:

Someone buys a firearm on December 15, undergoes a NICS check, and the dealer receives permission to transfer the firearm.  However, the state requires a seven-day wait. The customer doesn't return to pick up the gun until January 20.  At that time, since more than 30 days has elapsed, the customer must undergo another NICS check.

Another person fills out a 4473, undergoes a NICS check, and decides to purchase a firearm.  Before completing section B of the 4473, he decides to purchase a second firearm.  That second firearm can be transferred to the customer without requiring a second NICS check.

A third purchaser buys a firearm, fills out the 4473, and undergoes a NICS check.  Five (5) days later, he returns to buy a second firearm.  He must undergo another NICS check because filling out section B of the 4473 and taking possession of the first gun concluded the transaction.

Do either a gunsmith or a manufacturer need to do a NICS check before returning a firearm to its owner after performing repair work or other modification?

No. In neither case does a NICS check need to be performed.

How are gun show sales affected by NICS?

The circumstances requiring a NICS check for firearm transfers from FFL / Dealers will still apply regardless of whether the sale is conducted from the dealer's premises or at a gun show. (Or anywhere else for that matter).  Private sales of firearms will only require a NICS check in states that require secondary sales be handled through an FFL dealer.  Private Gun Show sales will be subject to applicable state and local laws.  

I understand antiques will not require a NICS check, but curios and relics will. Why?

Under federal law, firearms meeting the antique definition are not considered "firearms," and no NICS check is required.  If a collector of curios and relics sells firearms from his private collection, BATF says no NICS check is required.  Holders of BATF collector licenses, as a category, are exempt from NICS checks on the transfer of curio and relic firearms.  However, if a licensed dealer sells a curio or relic to John Q. Public, a NICS check is required.

If the NICS computer "crashes," are there any back-up provisions in place?

In the event of a "crash," if a dealer is not notified that the transfer should be denied in three business days, the transfer may proceed.  However, if the federal NICS system or a state POC network goes down and a dealer can not get the clearance they may not sell or transfer the firearm.  Additionally, in states where the state POC network is used, if it goes down, a FFL / Dealer can not contact the federal NICS directly.

Historical Note: To present day the federal NICS computers have failed on numerous occasions.  The longest being for a 5 day period over a major holiday weekend.  Several million dollars worth of firearms sales were lost nationally during this period.  NICS was forced on the FBI with out provisions for funding of equipment and manning, by the U.S. Congress.  [ Typical reactionary BS "ready, fire, aim! ]  The FBI have recently dedicated additional resources to the NICS but it is still weak and subject to outages and errors.

My right-to-carry state won't be a POC state for long guns.  What happens when a permit holder comes in to buy a rifle or shotgun?

If your state's permit meets the criteria as an alternative under the NICS system, the permit holder is exempt from a NICS check to buy a long gun.  A non-permit holder buying a long gun will need a NICS check.

The National Rifle Association of America or NRA is the preeminent firearms training and gun rights organization in the United States.  In civilian training, the NRA continues to be the leader in firearms education, with over 50,000 Certified Instructors who train about 750,000 gun owners a year.

A Brief History of the NRA
The National Rifle Association of America
Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871.  The primary goal of the association would be to "promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis," according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded.  Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. Senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.

An important facet of the NRA's creation was the development of a practice ground. In 1872, with financial help from New York state, a site on Long Island, the Creed Farm, was purchased for the purpose of building a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, the range opened a year later, and it was there that the first annual matches were held.

Political opposition to the promotion of marksmanship in New York forced the NRA to find a new home for its range. In 1892, Creedmoor was deeded back to the state and NRA's matches moved to Sea Girt, New Jersey.

The NRA's interest in promoting the shooting sports among America's youth began in 1903 when NRA Secretary Albert S. Jones urged the establishment of rifle clubs at all major colleges, universities and military academies. By 1906, NRA's youth program was in full swing with more than 200 boys competing in matches at Sea Girt that summer. Today, youth programs are still a cornerstone of the NRA, with more than one million youth participating in NRA shooting sports events and affiliated programs with groups such as 4-H, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Legion, U.S. Jaycees and others.

Due to the overwhelming growth of NRA's shooting programs, a new range was needed. Gen. Ammon B. Crichfield, Adjutant General of Ohio, had begun construction of a new shooting facility on the shores of Lake Erie, 45 miles east of Toledo, Ohio. Camp Perry became the home of the annual National Matches, which have been the benchmark for excellence in marksmanship ever since. With nearly 6,000 people competing annually in pistol, small bore and high power events, the National Matches are one of the biggest sporting events held in the country today.

Through the association's magazine, The American Rifleman, members were kept abreast of new firearms bills, although the lag time in publishing often prevented the necessary information from going out quickly. In response to repeated attacks on the Second Amendment rights, NRA formed the Legislative Affairs Division in 1934. While NRA did not lobby directly at this time, it did mail out legislative facts and analyses to members, whereby they could take action on their own. In 1975, recognizing the critical need for political defense of the Second Amendment, NRA formed the Institute for Legislative Action, or ILA.

Meanwhile, the NRA continued its commitment to training, education and marksmanship. During World War II, the association offered its ranges to the government, developed training materials, encouraged members to serve as plant and home guard members and developed training materials for industrial security. NRA members even reloaded ammunition for those guarding war plants. Incidentally, the NRA's call to help arm Britain in 1940 resulted in the collection of more than 7,000 firearms for Britain's defense against potential invasion by Germany (Britain had virtually disarmed itself with a series of gun control laws enacted between World War I and World War II).

After the war, the NRA concentrated its efforts on another much-needed arena for education and training: the hunting community. In 1949, the NRA, in conjunction with the state of New York, established the first hunter education program. Hunter Education courses are now taught by state fish and game departments across the country and Canada and have helped make hunting one of the safest sports in existence. Due to increasing interest in hunting, NRA launched a new magazine in 1973, The American Hunter, dedicated solely to hunting issues year round. NRA continues its leadership role in hunting today with the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC), a program that allows youngsters to build on the skills they learned in basic hunter education courses. YHECs are now held in 43 states and three Canadian provinces, involving an estimated 40,000 young hunters.

The American Hunter and The American Rifleman were the mainstays of NRA publications until the debut of The American Guardian in 1997. The Guardian was created to cater to a more mainstream audience, with less emphasis on the technicalities of firearms and a more general focus on self-defense and recreational use of firearms.

Law enforcement training was next on the priority list for program development. Although a special police school had been reinstated at Camp Perry in 1956, NRA became the only national trainer of law enforcement officers with the introduction of its NRA Police Firearms Instructor certification program in 1960. Today, there are more than 10,000 NRA-certified police and security firearms instructors. Additionally, top law enforcement shooters compete each year in eight different pistol and shotgun matches at the National Police Shooting Championships held in Jackson, Mississippi.

In civilian training, the NRA continues to be the leader in firearms education. Over 50,000 Certified Instructors now train about 750,000 gun owners a year. Courses are available in basic rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzle loading firearms, personal protection, and even ammunition reloading. Additionally, nearly 1,000 Certified Coaches are specially trained to work with young competitive shooters. Since the establishment of the lifesaving Eddie Eagle® Gun Safety Program in 1988, more than 12 million pre-kindergarten to sixth grade children have learned that if they see a firearm in an unsupervised situation, they should "STOP. DON'T TOUCH. LEAVE THE AREA. TELL AN ADULT." Over the past seven years, Refuse To Be A Victim™ seminars have helped more than 15,000 men and women develop their own personal safety plan using common sense strategies.

In 1990, NRA made a dramatic move to ensure that the financial support for firearms-related activities would be available now and for future generations. Establishing the NRA Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization, provided a means to raise millions of dollars to fund gun safety and educational projects of benefit to the general public. Contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible and benefit a variety of American constituencies, including youths, women, hunters, competitive shooters, gun collectors, law enforcement agents and persons with physical disabilities.

While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly three million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.  As former Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos said, "Let me make one small vote for the NRA.  They're good citizens.  They call their Congressmen.  They write.  They vote. They contribute. And they get what they want over time."

NIB:  Abbreviation for New In Box.  Often used to describe a firearm that is new,  unfired and in its original box in advertisements in guns for sale webs and papers.

NICS: Abbreviation for National Instant Check System.  Pronounced "Nicks".  See details above.

NIGGERTOWN SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL: An inflammatory and racist term used to describe handguns Negroes allegedly used to commit crimes in "Niggertown" on "Saturday night."  Of course firearms used by racist white police and Klansmen to commit murder in Negro areas were simply called "firearms".  Today the term has been "cleaned up" and inexpensive and small handguns are often called "Saturday Night Specials" but the roots are racists and the intent is oppression just the same.  For those of you under 30 years of age, the term "Negro" was commonly used to describe "Blacks" or "African Americans" both in law and in polite company.  For more information on the racist roots of American gun control, see the detail block below.

Gun Control's Racist Roots
The Racist History of Gun Control in America

America's first anti-firearms laws were started by Southern states to keep firearms out of the hands of freed Negro slaves.  This policy was designed and implemented so "they" could be "kept in their place" by the racists whites, land owners, the powerful plantation owners and the Klan.  These "Negro Code" laws and the resulting lynching of disarmed African Americans were the reason the Congress enacted the Civil Rights Act of 1866, then called the Freedman's Bureau Act of 1866.  It was also one of the prime reasons for the all-important 14th Amendment which prevents states from denying American's of Negro descent their constitutional rights. 

The response?  States drafted new "laws" that were enforced against Negroes / blacks only.  Such as the Florida case of Watson vs. Stone, 1941, in which a Florida Supreme Court judge noted, "The statute (law) was never intended to be applied to the Caucasian / white population and in practice had never been so applied.  This "law" was then overturned. 

Today most people would never dare to use the same racist and inflammatory rhetoric, but the anti-gunners are working hard to keep affordable firearms form the poor and dispossessed and it is still a hateful and racist policy.  The anti's know that can not win in the suburbs and take all the guns at once, so they pick on cheap and affordable arms favored by the poor and by black Americans.  Known they will face little resistance and they will then just keep chipping away until the expensive arms used by "normal" Americans are also banned.

Anti-gun policies are misogynistic and anti-woman. The policies have the effect of keeping women and the poor, the most victimized American's, from owning arms and defending themselves.  So the people who need the protection of arms most are denied this right, by the political party that claims to be for the poor, blacks women and dispossessed.  Anti gun laws are anti-freedom laws and they are still designed and implemented to keep us powerless and so "they" can be "kept in their place".  This time instead of the racist Klan of the old south, it is the idiot "liberals' of the new left.

Even the term "Niggertown Saturday Night Special" is back.  But this time, the racists who are pushing it are going about it in a much more politically correct manner.  And elitist in the press, who think you are second class citizens, are pumping the lies around the clock. 

"Most reporters are very sympathetic to gun-control agendas and will skew or lie outright about facts to promote them, "USA Today reporter, Dennis Cauchon "KABC-TV encourage me to hype assault-rifle crime concerns to
build pressure on lawmakers to enact a comprehensive ban, "KFI Radio talk host Bill Ress.

"Reporters today are far removed from America's founding values and are alarmed and contemptuous of gun owners as dangerous lower classes, "Washington Post reporter, Henry Allen. 

The next time you hear a politician hyping "Saturday Night Special" bans, think about what they're really saying.  And think long and hard about who they're trying to forcibly disarm and why. Stay free.  Enforce your American right to keep and bear arms.
