I have the transaction number, just waiting for the appeal form. I'll probably go through the process to get it fixed.
From what I've read, ATF made NYS stop using pistol permits as a alternative to NICS because NYS was not in compliance with ATF rules & regulations. They gave them a deadline to comply and they didn't.
I"m sure that Bloomberg, the anti-gun mayor of NYC was influential in this change, he's been at war with the fed's for what he calls "lax enforcement".
I thought that when the background check was done for my pistol permit, it went through the FBI too not just the state.
