Prof Young Previous post has me wondering what it means to fail the NCIS?
NCIS is a TV show.
NICS checks that result in a "Denied" response means that the FBI found information in your records that disqualifies you from acquiring a firearm. When that happens you can request an appeal and may be asked to provide additional documents or fingerprints.

Has one broken a law by failing the NICS
No.
If you lied on your Form 4473 that you complete before the NICS check....that IS felony.



Quote:
or does it just mean the ATF now has legal cause to investigate that person if they want to?
If the buyer is not a prohibited person, is denied by NICS....there is no crime.
If the buyer IS a prohibited person, is denied by NICS.....well, they lied on their 4473, so ATF could investigate for falsifying the 4473. (but they rarely do)



Quote:
I used to think it just meant you didn't get a firearms. What else does it mean?
It means what it means. When NICS ran your information there were records disqualifying you from acquiring a firearm. It could be a name match with a felon, immigration status, old court case with missing disposition or even a pending DWI.
