Around 99% of those denials were false positives.
That means that around 1% of the denials were VALID. That means the law is working as intended. If it stops even one bullet from getting in the wrong hands, it is working as intended.

How the inefficiency of the system (99% false positives) affects people is a DIFFERERENT matter, and not one they are much concerned about.

Until we get a judge who says otherwise....

When they say its working as intended, they aren't, technically, lying. They just aren't telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth as we see it.

Would be interesting to see what the results would be if one of them made that statement under oath in a court of law, instead of on the media in the court of public opinion...
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
