Holder prepares firearm regulations
Story here. The paucity of regs -- allowing police to run background checks before returning seized firearms, allowing Indian tribal authorities to run them (for any FFLs on a reservation, and I know of none, retaining "denials" for ten years -- shows that there really is not much he can do through that means. The battle will be on the Hill.
"The proposed regulations would give local law-enforcement agencies access to the gun-sale database that is maintained by the FBI."
Hang on a minute. Are they saying local police agencies can run NICS checks now, or that there is a database of gun sales maintained by the FBI that is fed by the NICS checks?
Wouldn't the latter be illegal? I thought the FBI was specifically forbidden from maintaining any such database?
