According to a memo from the ATF, it has decided to slow down the process of firearms transfers. They are scaling back the automated part of the system. Let's hope that this is temporary as they say and not just more dirty dealing by the current regime. If it lasts more that a few weeks, it is underhanded gun control to suppress the people. "Since January 2014, approximately 50% of firearms act applications have been submitted via'' the automated system, Richardson said in the memo. "This surge in demand has created the need to temporarily scale back ... submissions while the system is enhanced to handle greater capacity in the future." http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/04/24/atf-guns-registration/8115273/ PS. I've had enough years working as a system analyst/programmer, DBA and system software engineer to know that scaling back a system to expand it is abnormal and unnecessary. Will the gov ever learn that you can't fool all of the people all of the time. But then many of these gov workers get their power by deceitful methods & know nothing else.
