PASSED

219-210

H.R. 1446 Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021 NO Current law allows the sale of a firearm to an individual if the NICS does not return a denial within 3 full business days. The measure would extend the initial 3 business day waiting period to 10 business days.This extension presents an unnecessary burden on law-abiding citizens and could even deny access to their Constitutional rights. Additionally, if a result is not returned within this period, the purchaser must submit a petition to the government for the sale to proceed and wait an additional 10 days before the firearm can be transferred.
