Publication Survey of State Procedures Related to Firearm Sales, 1996

September 1, 1997    NCJ 165705

Provides an overview of the firearm check procedures in each of the States. It is a continuation of ongoing data collection efforts that focus on the number of applications received, the number rejected, the reason(s) for the rejection, and other processing information associated with each application to purchase a firearm. This is the second report to be published from the BJS Firearm Inquiry Statistics (FIST) project, which is part of the BJS National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP). The project is being conducted by the Regional Justice Information Service (REJIS) of St. Louis, Missouri. The purpose of the project is to develop statistics that describe the implementation of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (Brady Act), or, in the case of Brady Alternative States, under those States' own legislation. Data are used for national estimates.
