    Post Colorado CBI Check Funding Denied

    DENVER (AP) - Colorado lawmakers denied a request for about $455,000 to address a dramatic increase in the number of people needing background checks to buy firearms in the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary.

    The Joint Budget Committee on Thursday voted 4-2 to deny the request from the Department of Public Safety. It means people looking to buy firearms will have to wait longer to make their purchase because there's a backlog.

    The checks typically have taken less than an hour, but now take about a week because more people are interested in buying firearms as lawmakers in Congress and in the state weigh gun-control measures.
    Democratic Rep. Claire Levy says she doesn't think people who want to buy guns deserve special funding.

    One Republican joined three Democrats to deny the request.




    I could well argue the CBI Check is redundant with the NICS.

    That Republican is toast, hopefully next election. I believe this is just ONE of many things that states, etc. will use to deny people their 2A rights.

    Where I live, since I have a carry license, no check is done when purchasing, at least right now.

    The "Baby Brady" is why people are waiting 8 days for a purchase. Thus becoming a de facto waiting period. When you're a scumbag lawyer in office and you can't achieve your wicked designs through legislative mandate, do it with red tape!
