For example, letting the gun out the door before the NICS transaction came back clear. Now, I don't like NICS wait times any more than the next guy and think technologically there is no reason any check should take more than 5 minutes. BUT that doesn't mean I agree with FFLs who ignore that part of the law. I also hear there were many who were getting no real punishment for failing to log guns in and out, not a few but large quantities.

RE: the highlighted portion

FFLs are legally required to hold a gun for three business days if they get a "Delayed" response on a 4473. If, after three days they have not received a response from ATF, they can - at their discretion - release the gun to the purchaser. Releasing the gun after the three-day wait is NOT "ignoring that part of the law".

If you take away from people any ability to defend themselves, they will insist upon a police state, for their own protection.

Unless you don't even get a police state, you get anarcho-tyranny instead.
