I’ve been told by someone who should know:
there aren’t any people working in the ATF licensing center (except one person from management) until after the shutdown-furlough.
Interesting. What happens to businesses with FFLs? My guess is that if their license expires, even though they attempted to renew in a timely manner, then they have to stop selling firearms. At what point would such a requirement be an infringement upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms?
NICS is supposedly up. But there are going to be some FFLs with a deadline rapidly approaching.
