A USA TODAY review found that the FBI issued more than 4,000 requests last year for agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives to retrieve guns from prohibited buyers.Which leads to a number of troubling questions. Not the least of those is the question; What review, and what records. As I understand the statute, NICS background checks can only be kept for 24 hours. So, how could USA TODAY possibly review records that are not supposed to exist?
I'm going to have to talk to my Congressman about this.
