Firearm Background Checks Resume After 48 Minute Stoppage Caused by National Instant Check System Problem

June 3, 2013

Firearm background checks were not processed approximately 48 minutes Monday morning, June 3, because the National Instant Check System (NICS) was unavailable. Service was restored approximately 9:30 a.m.

Oregon State Police appreciates everyone's patience because we understand how frustrating the unexpected disruption was for those who rely on this service. We will work hard to complete any outstanding requests as soon as possible.
