NICS Denial Notification Act of 2017
This bill amends the federal criminal code to require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to report certain information to state and local law enforcement authorities following a determination, by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, that a prospective firearm purchaser is a prohibited person (i.e., a person who is barred from receiving or possessing a firearm).
DOJ must report annually on: (1) certain details regarding denied firearm purchases in each category of prohibited persons, and (2) the number of background check notices reported to states.
