    Gun shows in Colorado are all ready under a background check. First, you have to go through CBI before it can go to NICS. Problem is CBI is backlogged for 8-10 days....difficult to take possession!!!!!

    And what does the bill's sponsor - who has been trying to get this passed for 20 years - have to say about it? See, I read the entire article.


    ""There's a significant chance it'll make it, but don't bet any money on it," Marsh said. "The bill has a road to travel. But you've got to be persistent in this business."

    Republicans control the Virginia House, Senate and governorship."

    I think that if they cannot process a background check in a timely manner, this constitutes "infringement" and somebody with standing outgh to sue somebody about it.

    Whenever I've had background checks done at Virginia gun shows, I've been approved in 15 minutes or less. Undoubtedly, the current buying frenzy has slowed things down, but this is also true at gun shops, and is probably temporary.
