    Anyone else hear them reporting, that because of the shut down. you can't get a "gun permit"? :confused: They've repeated this 2 days in a row.

    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...

    NICS may be up, but what about NFA stamps? Anyone heard one way or the other?

    Looks like NFA approvals ARE shutdown. They got confused what approvals were affected.

    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.

    Blithering media fools. The lies they spew are insipid.
