DOJ/FBI RIN: 1110-AA24 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Carriage of Concealed Weapons Pursuant to the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 

The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004, Public Law 108-277 (the Act), exempts qualified current and former law enforcement officers from State laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed handguns. This rule would implement the Act by amending 28 CFR 20.3(b) to add "the issuing of identification documents to current and retired law enforcement officers pursuant to Public Law 108-277" to the definition of administration of criminal justice. This change will authorize access to FBI-maintained criminal justice information systems to support performing criminal background checks on current and retired law enforcement officers seeking identification documents to carry a concealed firearm pursuant to Public Law 108-277.
