- “NICS states” are states in which the FBI Conducts NICS Checks for All Firearms Transactions
- “POC states” act as the Point of Contact (POC) for All Firearms Transactions
- “Partial POC” states Act as a Partial Point of Contact (POC) for NICS Checks
Accurate data entry is a crucial part of making sure firearms don’t end up in the hands of criminals. Additionally, paying employees to hand-type information into systems like DROS is time-consuming and costly.
