Denver Post item; CBI, gun buying perspective....

This topic may have been posted already so feel free to edit it TFL mods, but I think it's important for forum members to read/know.
The Denver Post; , ran a article saying the states CBI(CO Bureau of Investigation or the mini FBI, ) has a massive backlog of gun purchase background checks.
A firearm purchase took a avg of 23min in 11/2012. In 03/2012, the CBI staff now takes seven, yes, 07 days!
The Post news item says the state agency is working nearly 24-07, note; the federal/DoJ NCIS shuts down 6/six hours a day.
The CBI has employees working over-time & diverted some employees to other offices to speed up the checks.

Other local & state elected officals should take heed & hire-train more staff.
1000s of new gun buyers & weapons are now in the system. These public agencies(state police, public safety, homeland security, etc) should stay on top of it.
My state learned the hard way not to play around with gun owners(voters ).

It took a lawsuit being filed to get them to put additional people doing background check, when this happened, the background check wait went from 7-10 days to 45 minutes, almost overnight.

The Colorado governmnt is not concerned with complying with the law or protecting the rights of the good and free people.
