Brief Abstract: The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 required the United States Attorney General to establish a national instant criminal background check system that any Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) may contact, by telephone or by other electronic means, for information to be supplied immediately, on whether receipt of a firearm by a prospective purchaser would violate state or federal law. Information pertaining to licensees who may contact the NICS is being collected to manage and control access to the NICS and to the NICS E–Check, to ensure appropriate resources are available to support the NICS, and also to ensure the privacy and security of NICS information. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is estimated that 500 Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) enroll with the NICS per month for a total of 6,000 enrollments per year. The average response time for reading the directions for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Enrollment/NICS Electronic Check (E– Check) Enrollment Form is estimated to be two minutes; time to complete the form is estimated to be three minutes; and the time it takes to assemble, mail, or fax the form to the FBI is estimated to be three minutes, for a total of eight minutes. The average hour burden for this specific form is 6,000 × 8 minutes/ 60 = 800 hours. The Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Officer/Employee Acknowledgment of Responsibilities Form Under the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) takes approximately three minutes to read the responsibilities and two minutes to complete the form, for a total of five minutes. The average hour burden for this specific form is 6,000 × 5 minutes/ 60 = 500 hours. The accompanying letter mailed with the packet takes an additional two minutes to read which would be 6,000 × 2 minutes/60 = 200 hours. The entire process of reading the letter and completing both forms would VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:25 Jun 24, 2009 Jkt 217001 take 15 minutes per respondent. The average hour burden for completing both forms and reading the accompanying letter would be 6,000 × 15/60 = 1,500 hours. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The entire process of reading the letter and completing both forms would take 15 minutes per respondent. The average hour burden for completing both forms and reading the accompanying letter would be 6,000 × 15/60 = 1,500 hours.
