The changes 1) allow federal, state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies to access NICS when returning firearms such as those seized during criminal investigations, 2) allow tribal criminal justice agencies to access NICS for tribal firearms licensing and permitting purposes, and 3) make changes regarding retention of NICS denied transactions records.
