Also on the October agenda, if you’re near Denver, this is another reminder to attend NRA’s Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium on Saturday, October 12. You must pre-register, so get on it.

One thought on “October [Not] Surprises”

  1. Something that really bugs me is that, at least under Federal law, if the NICS center is down, you can still sell guns. Most dealers are just too scared to do it.
