- Bill: S 2492 - Mandatory Reporting of NICS
- Position: Strongly Opposed
- Sponsor: Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA)
- FPC Legislative Alert
S 2492 would force the FBI to report NICS denials to local law enforcement.
Mandatory reporting of NICS denials to law enforcement would create a new law enforcement nightmare, lead to likely millions of civil rights violations, put law-abiding people and law enforcement officers in danger, eliminate important case-by-case discretion, and unnecessarily burden cash-strapped public safety agency budgets.
Since thousands of people every year are affected by erroneous database information, mandatory reporting to law enforcement should not be implemented. Otherwise, law-abiding citizens may be faced with wrongful prosecution.
This bill must be stopped.
