Florida gun background checks now done online

by Erik  

So I was at my local gun store (LGS) last week and noticed something interesting. A customer was waiting paper work for a new gun purchase. Now, usually you see a member of the staff with a phone in their ear waiting for the background check approval number.

However, due to the crazy volume of gun purchases over the past several months, the FDLE has now switched to an online automation system to speed up requests. Once the buyers information in entered into the system, it's simply a matter of hitting the refresh button until it comes back approved or not. The overall process seemed to take just as long if not longer than a usual call but I thought it was interesting a government entity could actually pull together an initiative so quickly.
