The Oregon State Police (OSP) Firearms Instant Check System (FICS) has been in
operation for the past 17 years.  The FICS Unit was created to conduct criminal
background checks on individuals purchasing or transferring firearms from both
retailers and at firearm shows.  The system is to help ensure that purchasers
are not prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm.  Approximately 1-2% of
all background checks result in a denial of a firearm transfer based on the
categories below:

" Felon or Other Prohibited Persons
" Wanted Persons
" Mental Health Adjudication
" Stolen Firearm

Effective Tuesday, June 17, 2014 the OSP will be revising procedures related
to violations of state law involving persons attempting to purchase or transfer a
firearm that are denied, due to a state or federal disqualifier.  This revision
will include enforcement action involving persons attempting an unlawful
firearms transfer through a licensed firearm dealer, during a voluntary private party
check, or a background check at a gun show.

This process will allow OSP and other law enforcement agencies to investigate
potential violations of law that the FICS Unit becomes aware of and ultimately
make Oregon a safer place.
