"ATF FFL Notification to Colorado FFLs - Open Letter"
"This is an important message from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives for Colorado FFLs with the exception of Type 03 and Type 06 FFLs.
Colorado Open Letter:
Colorado House Bill 1298 HB1298 establishes a state requirement for an FFL in Colorado to obtain approval, in the form of a proceed response, from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation CBI prior to any firearm transfers. HB1298 prohibits the CBI from approving a firearm transfer until the CBI determines that its background investigation is complete and that the transfer would not violate federal prohibitions on firearms possession or result in a violation of state law. Prior to the passage of HB1298, if an FFL contacted the CBI for the required background check and received a delay response, the FFL could transfer the firearm prior to receiving the results of the required background check after three business days had elapsed since the FFL initiated the background check. Under HB1298, Colorado FFLs are now required to wait for a “proceed” response from the CBI prior to the transfer of a firearm to an unlicensed person, even if three business days or more have passed.
Additionally, individuals who have been denied a firearm transfer following a background check may request a review of the denial and of the instant criminal background check records that prompted their denial. Prior to HB1298, the CBI was required to review background check records that prompted the denial and render a final administrative decision regarding the denial within 30 days. HB1298 establishes a 60 day deadline for the CBI to conduct the review and render a final administrative decision."
Fucking bullshit. How long until CBI just stops processing background checks and essentially bans the sale of firearms?
Well it will "only" be certain types of dangerous firearms that should only be available to the military and police, but not the public AT FIRST.... then it'll be anything they can designate as a "sniper rifle" (read hunting rifle), then it'll be any handgun capable of accepting magazines holding more than 10 rds, then......
Feckless CO Republicans couldn't even get language added that "required" CBI to perform a background check in a certain amount of time?
At least then we could sue when they repeatedly failed to follow the law.
