Never...EVER...did I buy a new gun without going through a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Back in the day...before it was "instant"...1998 exactly...on the books you had to wait three days...which was more like 5 to 7.

Now...You have to complete a Form 4473, which includes 16 questions relating to your background, drug use, and criminal history. The gun store will then contact NICS online or by phone and supply your Social Security number. Simple...

The TINY Loop Hole

Thanks for posting that article. I did not know that there is a TINY piece of truth in the "Loop Hole" talk.

Background Checks for Criminals an Overdue Idea

If only criminals had to go through the same background checks that we law-abiding citizens must!

Too bad gun laws only affect good people.
