    CO: Background checks exceeding legal time limit

    In Colorado, if the background check isn't returned within three days, Colorado law allows the sale to proceed.

    Background checks in the state are taking four days due to the backlog and CBI is urging sellers to block the sale until results are returned.

    Interesting. The duly-adopted law specifies that a transaction is deemed to be approved absent a disqualifying response within 3 days, but the government agency administering the process is applying pressure on dealers who rely on that agency for their livelihood to ignore the clear language of the law.

    If I had only applied myself early in life and graduated from barber college I could probably understand all this nonsense. It would take 5 lawyers to explain it to me now, and all 5 would disagree with each other.

    Just texted my FFL. He says he's been getting checks back from TICS in about 10 minutes, although he did say he had one take 4 hours this past Friday.

    Isn't 3 days federal law? Colorado can "urge", but it is up to the FFL. One more reason to support your local gun shop.

    A buddy of mine here in AZ got a "Delayed" response a few days ago when going to pick up something online. It finally cleared today.

    I'm not sure about the federal law but I know it is codified in Colorado law. Colorado actually runs two checks, one through the CBI, the other through NICS.
