The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, is made up of three separate national databases, managed by the FBI.
The Interstate Identification Index is the primary repository for criminal history records.
The National Crime Information Center contains 19 different files, including records on people against whom protection orders have been filed.
The NICS Index contains records on 10 different federal firearm prohibitions that are not housed in the other database. They include people dishonorably discharged from the military and those involuntarily committed to a mental institution.
