FBI – Fire Arms

Your FBI Identity History Summary or Your Firearm Related Denial –

The NICS is a name check system that queries available records in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the Interstate Identification Index (III), and the NICS Indices to determine if prospective firearm purchasers are disqualified from receiving or possessing firearms.

If you believe you have been wrongfully denied a firearm transfer or pawn redemption, you may request an appeal. Some individuals may find they are continuously delayed when purchasing or redeeming firearms. Others may successfully appeal a NICS denial but still experience extended delays or erroneous denials on subsequent transactions. The Voluntary Appeal File (VAF) was established to assist in these types of situations by providing a way for an individual to request that NICS maintain information to clarify their identity or past events to prevent future extended delays or erroneous denials on firearm transfers.

A delayed transaction will be purged from the NICS within 88 days from creation. The NICS Section recommends that you wait 30 days from the date initiating the check prior to filing an appeal on a delay to give the NICS Section’s staff time to complete the initial transaction. If your original background check is completed, the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) will be notified with a final status.

What is an FBI Criminal Report?

It comes as a surprise to a lot of people to learn that the FBI may be maintaining a criminal report on them. Some people even find the idea rather scary. But the fact is it is very common. The FBI gathers information from every police department and court in the country on arrests and convictions and compiles the information into a large national database. So, if you have ever been arrested, charged with a crime or convicted of one, the FBI knows about it and they have created a report that documents it all.

Not everyone has an FBI Criminal Report of course, as they are generally a summary of arrests and convictions – in all 50 states – related to a specific individual. But even if you have never been arrested, there are some specific situations that require you to prove that fact and obtaining an official transcript – officially called a National Identity History Summary check but more often referred to as an FBI Criminal Report – from the FBI is the most efficient and acceptable way to do that.

So, who might need to access their FBI Criminal Report and/or obtain a National Identity History Summary proving that they do not have a criminal history? Here are some of the most common examples.
