    Full Title: Call volume shuts down FBIs firearm background checks, stops Maine sales on Black Friday

    BREWER, Maine Sometime early on Black Friday, the FBIs National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, went down and stopped all gun sales, Bangor-area gun dealers said.

    .......NICS is down, which means nobody is selling guns right now, on Black Friday, said Ralph McLeod, owner of Buyers Guns in Holden

    .......The NICS is a name-check system that combs available records in the National Crime Information Center, the Interstate Identification Index and the NICS Index to determine if prospective firearm purchasers are disqualified from receiving or possessing firearms, the FBIs website states.

    In my area (North Myrtle Beach, SC), people without CWP's were waiting for hours and hours.

    If I were a buyer, I would be angry...seller just has to say come back in a couple of hours to pick it up. Better than the 3-day wait for non CWL holders here.

    Yup. At the four gun stores I was at yesterday, all had hours and hours waiting time. Gun sellers were "happy", they still sold the product. It was the buyer that wasn't very happy about having to come back during the day of madness.

    I do know that it's been like that for more than a couple of years. I would've expected it, especially after the election. The NICS is a goverment 'thing' so most would understand it's gonna work like a broken clock..... on 'black Friday' no less.

    Having said that, I'd be a little sideways about it too.

    Can we all say "............ shall not be infringed."

    --Thomas B. Reed, American Attorney

    Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."

    I wasn't buying a gun but was at Gander Mountain. There seemed to be a lot more folks at the counter than I expected -- even for Black Friday.

    I guess no legal gun sales puts a smile on Bloomberg's (plus a number of others in D.C.) mug. Just curious -- did this NCIS problem interfere with sales to/from felons?

    why isn't it just a computer system?

    all FFLs get a screen name & password to use to log on, check the status of the buyer, and seconds later...boom!!

    NICS check complete.

    Just yesterday late morning(Friday) I had bought gun on gunbroker and of course, had it sent to my LGS (a small private one). Only he and I were in the store, when he called my info in, he experienced a recording about a two minute wait. The wait was actually about a minute or less. Got approved, and went home with a NIB Sig Sauer P220 stainless elite .45.........a good morning

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Not surprised. My wife and father-in-law went to Walmart on Tday evening,...FIL tried to check the gun counter for sales, couldn't get NEAR it. Sucks for the people that missed out on buying stuff, or had to wait.
