An easy to read explanation of the NICS system. It is does not explain the limitiations of the data they use. Too many jurisdictions do not enter accurate and timely information regarding civil court orders and other prohibiting factors. As quick and accurate as NCIS is, I find it difficult to rely on it totally.
