186) If NICS-reporting procedures ensure that only necessary prohibitor information is submitted, and if the creation of a hybrid entity or passage of a law requiring NICS submission proves too onerous, the public-health interest would likely be deemed weightier.
The HIPAA-NICS NPRM is arguably not only unnecessary given the existing public-health exception, but unnecessary given the reality that states have increasingly passed legislation that requires the submission of prohibitor information (including mental-health information) to NICS.
More than thirty states now require that federal prohibitor information be submitted to NICS, and more states continue to introduce bills requiring such disclosure.
In light of this trend, only those states without laws requiring the reporting of prohibitor information to NICS, (190) and whose prohibitor information is classified as PHI, (191) would be affected by the new HIPAA-NICS NPRM exception.
192) However, states would not be forced to report prohibitor information to NICS.
Although states may supplement the federal requirements describing who may own a gun, states, with the encouragement of the federal government, should strive to achieve at least uniform policies regarding the submission of federal prohibitor information in a way that maintains respect for individuals with mental disabilities.
Virginia's NICS-reporting legislation has also been successful in increasing the amount of relevant prohibitor information submitted to NICS, and thus serves as an example for other states and the federal government to follow.
229) By mandating that submission will include only information pertaining to the NICS prohibitor and not the actual medical records, this stipulation alleviates health-care providers' concerns that PHI will be inappropriately submitted to the CCRE and NICS.
Finally, this Section highlights non-HIPAA-related NICS issues that the federal government should address to increase the amount of mental-health reporting to NICS and thereby improve NICS's success rate in preventing individuals who fall under the mental-health prohibitor from purchasing firearms.
