NICS EO in the works on 1/20?

Recommended Posts

Not trying to start up the rumor mill here. A friend of mine picked up a lower recently and the FFL said there were better than even odds that an EO would come down on 1/20 shutting down NICS. In a sane world this would never survive court challenge but last I checked we were no longer living in a sane world. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has heard such talk.

If they decide to do that, that would be one of the worst things they could do.  Almost inviting bad things to happen.

I had to quote that.... someone want to remind me how well Trump's three SCOTUS picks have helped us?

Of NICS goes down, don't all requesr automatically get approved if there is no response in so many days?

It was supposed to be approved in 3 days, but that went out the window.

Once a NTN is issued, the FBI has 3 business days to approve. The dealer needs that number before the clock starts ticking.

I recently transferred a firearm to someone after 5 total days, and NICS denied him on day 8. Oops. LOL. They should have been quicker.

NJ NICS is a point of contact for a Federal System, and the NJSP have acknowledged that the Federal "3day" rule does apply.

They don't publicly state it, but we have it confirmed, that they (NJSP) defer to the fed ruling - 3 business days (not including the day of submittal) if the NICs is not approved or denied, a Dealer can (if he so chooses) make the transfer w/o an approval.

Now, getting a dealer to do it is another story. We have turned over guns to very well known and trusted clients after the fouth day but it is rare and only for very specific curcumstances (like a permit is going to expire)...........

Maybe if more dealers started doing this, they would get off their ass and move faster.
