SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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.

system notice have been sent to the House of Representatives Committee 
on Government Reform and Oversight, the Senate Committee on

    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),
