The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub. L. 103–159, mandated the establishment of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The Brady Act authorizes the Attorney General to secure information from Federal agencies on seven categories of persons who are ineligible to receive firearms under the Criminal Code, 18 U.S.C. 922(g) and (n), for entry into the NICS. The only relevant category for purposes of this routine use is ‘‘persons adjudicated as mentally incompetent.’’ The Brady Act requires Federal agencies to furnish the information on these individuals to NICS upon request of the Attorney General. VA proposes to add a new routine use to 58VA21/22 under which to disclose identifying information on VA beneficiaries who have been adjudicated incompetent under 38 CFR 3.353 to the Attorney General or his/her designee for entry into the NICS. VA has determined that the release of information for this purpose is appropriate and necessary because the Brady Act requires VA to furnish such information to the NICS after receiving a request from the Attorney General. An altered system of records report and a copy of the revised system notice have been sent to the House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and guidelines issued by OMB (65 FR 77677, December 12, 2000). The proposed new routine use number 64 will be added to the system of records entitled ‘‘VA Compensation, Pension, Education and Rehabilitation Records—VA’’ (58VA21/22), as published at 41 FR 924 (March 3, 1976), and last amended at 66 FR 47725 (September 13, 2001), with other amendments as cited therein. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Approved: June 7, 2005. R. James Nicholson, Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Notice of Amendment to System of Records The system identified as 58VA21/22 ‘‘Compensation, Pension, Education, and Rehabilitation Records,’’ published at 41 FR 924 (March 3, 1976), and last amended at 66 FR 47725 (September 13, 2001), with other amendments as cited therein, is revised to add a new routine use number 64 as follows: E:\FR\FM\13JNN1.SGM 13JNN1
