Oh this is a crock. I don't think he's being genuine about either his own level of effort (complaints about a 76 mile drive when it's his rights
involved? Well, Government offices don't do home delivery of service desks) or the nature of this.
I get delayed on every single purchase I make. Since it's relevant to this. I'll note what it's about. Years ago I got nailed in St Louis by the
D.O.T. for speeding through downtown on the interstate in my truck. A few MPH over, and nothing reckless ...but during that period? I wasn't the most
attentive on paperwork. When he asked for my logbook I knew my day was in for a BAD BAD turn. I hadn't drawn a line all week ...and was in the habit
then of just doing the previous days at the terminal before turning in paperwork for payroll.
To shorten the story here.... He threw the book at me, and in reality. I deserved it. I plead the case down from Out of Service for log book
violations and speeding with points on my license to brakes out of adjustment. No Points! No problem! Right? WRONG........ That is technically a
misdemeanor infraction and CAN be a felony if related to injury or death ....something my attorneys never bothered mentioning before pleading it out
to avoid points.
So.. It lists as Misdemeanor "and/OR" felony" and catches the NICS check every single time. It's from that I know he did STEP 1 ...NOT STEP 2 of a
Step 1 is getting the info, as he did and getting it all cleared up as to WHY it's happening.
Step 2 can be one of two things. The formal appeal process they have well established to handle these things or a separate process you undergo to get
a background check in far more depth ONCE and get assigned a special number to use on the paperwork from that date forward. Rather than using a name
or social sec? They then run the request by the number assigned by the Department of Justice after the process to get it is completed. It removes
mistaken identity and shows any previous issues to be investigated and settled prior to the date of the number being issued. I.E....the past isn't
IF it's a hangup on a bunk problem, that is precisely why that process was put into place and it's how an issue everyone agrees is not an issue can
be bypassed for all future purchases. I don't see where he even tried that and it's quite a little hassle ...I'm sure he'd have mentioned it if he
did. I skipped it because I can live with the delay issue. I just know to expect it.
As for why it hit now and not before?? Well, they've been saying for years they would merge state and federal databases for the NICS check. At least
as far back as Virginia Tech for a major push in getting it done. I'll bet plenty of things which have been forgotten and SHOULD have been tripping
by accident all along, will be now.
