Background checks (Why the wait?)
That is because the FBI expects delays in doing background checks for all non-criminal justice purposes.
The reason has nothing to do with politics nor any perception the Obama Administration is anti-Second Amendment, either.
Instead, the reason is because the FBI will be consumed with performing background checks on approximately 484,000 federal Census employees, an issue facing crucial need.
As a result, from about April 28 through May 1 a delay in performing other background checks is a certainty.
The delay, by the way, impacts all FBI background checks and not just those for concealed carry permit applicants.
