Oppose HR 1112 - Extended Time Limits on FBI Background Checks

BILL: HR 1112 - Extended Time Limits on FBI Background Checks

Author: Rep. Clyburn (D-SC-6)

POSITION: OPPOSE

Summary: Under current Federal guidelines, FFLs can transfer a gun immediately after receiving a “proceed” authorization through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System. In cases where the FBI gives a “delay,” it is up to the dealer whether to go through with the transfer after three business days. HR 1112 would remove that discretion and instead impose a delay of potentially 20 business days before the transaction could go through. There is no reason that the Second Amendment should be held up at the whim of a bureaucrat in Washington D.C.
