NICS is turning into a government permission mechanism.
I am begging to hate it. I am begging to hate the people that think its a good idea.
Dont want anyone to buy guns?
Say NICS is down.
NICS is down...due to volume...bad weather...or maybe the President and his cronnies just dont want you to buy guns for" national security reasons". Think it wont happen?
One other way to look at it...
if the system gets overloaded...then FIX the dang thing. Take some of the money that we are diddling away to our so called "buddies" in the Middle East and fix it.
How hard can it be? Hire more people. Fix the computers. Just make it happen.
