CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The surge of criminal background checks required of new gun purchasers has been so unrelenting in recent months that the FBI had been forced to temporarily halt the processing of thousands of appeals from prospective buyers whose firearm purchase attempts have been denied.
FBI official: ‘Perfect storm’ imperiling gun background checks
A queue of 13,000 cases in the penalty box is not a booboo, it is a f*** up. I have been denied and it took three months to clear for an already paid gun when there was no real reason for the denial. I made the mistake of buying a gun during the Holidays and I guess it was easier to deny me than actually get some work done… must be my inclusion (I am guessing) in the No Fly List/ CSGV Inurrectionist Hit List.
And yes, the extra help is nice, but do you know what else would help enormously?
No Background Checks for those individuals with a Concealed Weapons Permit.
We have been already went through a BG Check, we have been fingerprinted and photographed and in a data base…what the hell else do you frigging need? Go to the store, select gun, fill ATF 4473, present DL and CWP, grab gun and go to the range to shoot it.
Of course the idea will give conniptions to the Opposition. Every time I bring out this solution when discussing Universal Background checks, you can literally see Antis fill their Depends in abject fear.
“But…but.. we need background checks!”
“I already had one done and carry the proof with me. How many more do you need? How many times do I need to prove I am law abiding and better behaved that the stupid Bloomberg Mayors?”
“But…but.. we need background checks! Moar background checks… so no!”
Yeah, I am not waiting for that to go Federal Level. Few things that make sense ever go that way. But we have free health care!

In a lot of states the background check is waived if you have a permit. This is something that the state legislature needs to fix.
Also, you could forgo background checks on holders of LEOSA cards.
There’d be a lot of overlap with CCW holders, but not 100%, especially not in the Northeast.
Yep. Purchased a new handgun first of December; presented state CCW permit; done.
Don’t tell the gun grabbers, though…they’ll add it to their “loophole” list.
It’s just one more piece of unintended consequences from a ‘panic’ rule without accounting for actual work that has to be done… And WE all suffer for it!
Idiot laws made by idiots to make idiots feel better,this should cover all the reasons they have for these kind of laws.
I guess I got lucky. Got an XD Mod 2 in December with no hassle.
PS: fantastic 9mm!
Old 1811- I see no reason why LEOs or retired LEOs should get extra privileges or exemptions that normal citizens don’t. As dumb as background checks are, I think that the police already have far too many exemptions.
