Abstract: In November 1993, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 (Brady Act), Public Law 103–159, was signed into law and required Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) to request background checks on individuals attempting to purchase a firearm. The permanent provisions of the Brady Act, which went into effect on November 20, 1998, required the United States Attorney General to establish the NICS whereas FFLs may contact by telephone or other electronic means in addition to telephone for information to be supplied within three business days or whether the receipt of a firearm by a prospective transferee would violate Section 922(g) or (n) of Title 18, united States Code, or state law. There are additional authorized uses of the NICS found at Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 25.6(j). The FBI authorized the CJAs to initiate a NICS check to assist their transfer of firearms to private individuals as a change to 28 CFR 25.6(j) in the Federal Register, Volume 78, Number 18 pages 5757–5760. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is estimated the time burden associated with this collection is 3 minutes per transaction, depending on the individual circumstances. The total annual PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 respondent entities taking advantage of this disposition process is 18,000 CJAs. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: It is estimated the burden associated with this collection is 3 minutes per transaction depending on individual circumstances. If each of the 18,000 respondents conducted 3 dispositions with this authority per year at 3 minutes per check, then it is anticipated the business burden would be 2,700 hours per year.

Federal law. The information gathered from the self-assessments will 
enable ETA Regional Office staff to work with the state to identify 
areas where performance improvements are needed. The results will be

individual states. The results will also enable a more robust and 
effective collection and dissemination of state best practices. Social

be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of 
information if the collection of information does not display a valid
