been this way since we opened this morning. When trying to do a back ground check NICS is saying all lines are busy so...we can't even sell a gun today unless you have a CCW. We'll stack up the forms and clear them all at once when we get through I guess.

Hurray for CCWs, LOL. Kinda sucks for you guys, though, having to deal with all the customers who I'm sure are unhappy to hear such news.

System overloaded or deliberate? I'm always wondering if it's incompetence or conspiracy.

The rules clearly state that no licensee can be penalized for not running a NICS if the system is down.

The problem is that no FFL wants to put their license at risk by following the rules.

This happens every Black Friday...I'm not going to go so far as to say it's a conspiracy, but I am sure NICS does not care that calls can't be made.

That explains the long lines at Cabela's, the line for gun purchases stretched half way through the store
