Obama shutting down NICS?

I've answered my own question. I guess CNN is using scare tactics to get conservatives to pressure their reps to keep gov. open.

Looks like CNN is trying to put fear in gun buyers hearts with false reporting. Wonder what their motive would be?

Despite bad CNN reporting, NICS to still operate during government shutdown - National gun rights | Examiner.com

“The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Section has informed NSSF that NICS would remain fully operational and maintain normal business hours in the event of a government shutdown on Tuesday,” the industry trade association reported.
This is consistent with an advisory posted last Friday by the National Rifle Association.
“Law enforcement activities are designated as essential services and do not shut down even if the Congress and President fail to agree on funding legislation,” NRA explained. “The NICS system will continue to operate.”

Read over on Rimfire, that the ncis was a stand alone contract. not subject to the shutdown BS. Just making sure I wasn't imagining things...

Just saw the thread in the Class III forum, right after I clicked Post ;) Not that I have any in processing but a bummer for those affected.

I think a random number generator, could do a better job of what's open and what's not. 'cause the newsies ain't cutting it.

I heard the same thing on CNN two days ago that "gun permits"(their words);) and how they would not be issued during a shutdown.

I sort of figured the NFA and maybe FFL processing would be down and that is what I assumed they were talking about, but they definitely made it out to sound like getting a firearm would be affected.

Here ya go.. I found some funny articles that mention it.


What the Government Shutdown Will Look Like Where You Live - Mike Riggs - The Atlantic Cities
Applicants seeking gun permits, business loans, passports, and home loans: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives will likely not process applications for gun permits
:roflfunny:


Government shutdown: What you need to know - CNN.com
14. How will this affect me?
In ways big and small. The mail will continue to come. The military will continue to fight. And Social Security checks will continue to be paid.
But if you need a federal loan to buy a house, you'll have to wait. If you want a gun permit or a passport, that won't happen anytime soon.
:roflsmile::roflsmile:

And it goes on with them all repeating the same thing. :banghead:


<Thanks for the new smilies TGT>
