An article in the New York Times reports that the Bush administration has proposed to limit the time that the government can keep records of instant background checks on gun buyers. According to the article, advocates of gun control quickly criticized the plan as a "gift to the National Rifle Association," while the association praised the decision on privacy grounds.

I believe that it is John Ashcroft that is making it official policy that the Government can't retain records for more than one day. Per his discretion as Attorney General. So the NRA "instant check records" defeat by the Supreme Court case is null. Everyone write his office a letter to support his position and give him a thumbs up.
