Q&A Wednesday: How does an individual appeal a NICS denial decision?

When an individual is denied the transfer of a firearm, they may initiate an appeal by accessing http://www.fbi.gov/nics-appeals. Individuals that do not have internet access may appeal the decision in writing directly to:

Federal Bureau of Investigation
NICS Section
Appeal Services Unit
PO Box 4278
Clarksburg, WV 26302-9922

Appeals submitted in writing must include the NICS Transaction Number (NTN) and a valid address for the appellant.
