    Question Gun Purchases Under Gov Shutdown?

    I wonder, can you buy a firearm when the NCIS system is shutdown? Will a concealed carry license be enough to qualify?

    Any member have the answer?

    A Florida CCW holder still has to go through the background check whenever they purchase a firearm from an FFL. They just aren't held to the three day waiting period.

    I also thought that Fla. had itís own BG check system, but I may be wrong.

    I bought a Handgun this afternoon at Rural King in Crystal River, and I had no delay whatsoever , once the Store's Internet came back on-line. Filled out the 4473 bon the computer and had the OK within 5 minutes.
    This is not a Bakery. I do not sugar coat anything.
    If you ask for my opinion, that is what you will get.
    Do Not be mad, when it is not what you want to hear.

    If you have a problem with me, Call Me.
    If you do not have my number, you are not
    close enough to me for me to care if you
    have a problem with me.

    FL does Rick, it just one of the states that somehow doesn't meet ATF requirements I'm just not sure where it falls short.

    Florida uses the FDLE to run background checks for gun purchases. I'm sure in some way it is tied to NCIS, just not sure how. My understanding is for the FL permit to qualify for the 4473 background check exemption the permit can not be good for more then 5 years. Florida permits are currently good for 7 years therefore making them invalid for the exemption.

    FL was 5 years until recently... has nothing to do with it. States can impose their own laws which is what FL has done requiring the check for all. FDLE checks State and NICS when doing a check.
