The prospect of tighter gun laws has gun sales soaring and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation remains flooded with requests for background checks on buyers.
On a normal day a background check would take about 15 minutes, but the CBI is so backed up it’s been taking as much as eight days.
CBI spokesperson Susan Medina says their processors have been overwhelmed.
“When you look at a traditional day, a week, a month, a year; they come in in the morning, they work all day, and they go home at night, and the queue is at zero,” Medina said.
But as of Thursday afternoon they had 11,400 waiting to be processed. They’ve extended hours, brought in extra resources, but can’t keep up with the demand. It’s created a long wait time for gun buyers.
I was at a gun shop in Denver yesterday, which has sold all of their self-reloading rifles, and are completely out of .223/5.56 ammo. Two weeks ago they had about five hundred rifles. Prices for some have tripled at gun shows.
