Instacheck At Their Convenience
I gave my daily grill to the Oregon State Police today. Regular listeners to my show know that I have a lot of respect for the work police officers do. It's not an easy job and any officer that is good at what he does is great in the realm of every day life in relation to what most of us do for work.
However, what's happening lately when people go to purchase a firearm, they go through Instacheck, which is used to see if someone is eligible to own one. For example, they'll get checked for a felony record or past slip ups. Now, though, the Oregon State Police shut down the background check program. Like Kevin Starret from the Oregon Firearms Foundation explains, that means people who went to all the gun shows over the weekend were not able to purchase a firearm. Even further, all the people who called to get checked have been put on a delay and when trying to contact the OSP, they are basically told to go away and not bother them. This coming from a group that is paid with our tax money.
Just another case in government where we've paid them and now THEY owe US.
