    NICS Question

    Correct me if I am wrong but when this background check system was first set up it applied only to handgun purchases. Does it now apply to all firearm purchases from an FFL and if so what year did this come into effect?

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
