H.R. 5544: Terrorist Screening Database Improvement Act

Title: Terrorist Screening Database Improvement Act

Introduced: Jun 21, 2016 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: (No First Name Found) (No Last Name Found) [-]

Status: Referred to Committee - Sponsor introductory remarks on measure.

Summary: Terrorist Screening Database Improvement Act This bill amends the federal criminal code to prohibit a firearms sale or transfer to an individual whose name appears in the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB). The national instant criminal background check system (i.e., the NICS database) must notify the Department of Justice (DOJ) when a licensed gun dealer requests a background check on a prospective gun buyer whose name appears on the TSDB. DOJ must comply with notice requirements. An individual may bring a civil action in federal court seeking removal from the TSDB. Additionally, the NICS database must notify the Federal Bureau of Investigation if a licensed gun dealer requests a background check on a prospective gun buyer who is or has been under a federal terrorism investigation.
