Firearms Busy Season

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

 The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

NICS ALERTS RETAILERS OF BUSY SEASON HOURS . . . The FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) has announced hours for its busy season, which began Oct. 1 and will continue through Jan. 16. During this time, NICS Section operational hours will be from 6 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Eastern Time, with state points-of-contact (POCs) being placed in service at 7 a.m. and out of service at 1:30 a.m. EST. NICS call centers will maintain their normal daily operations hours of 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. EST. This is all done to facilitate public purchase of guns at retail, which must be approved by central federal bureaucrats, according to the Brady law.

One day that will deviate from this schedule will be the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27), when NICS will come in full service at 6 a.m. EST. This will include the call centers, state POCs and NICS Section. The NICS Section is closed Christmas Eve at midnight and all day on Christmas. NICS operations will resume on Dec. 26 at 6 a.m. EST. The state POCs will resume at 7 a.m. and the call center at 8 a.m. EST.

Despite tens of thousands of denied gun sales to hardened criminals who are forced to get their guns elsewhere, denying cities much needed sales tax revenue, arrests of felons seeking guns at retail is extremely low, for reasons that are well understood: http://www.gunlaws.com/BradyArrestsLacking.htm
