Default Delayed

What's the reason for being delayed when called in for a background check?
I gotten a lot of guns over the past few months and not had an issue. Today I stopped at the local shop to pick five AR lower receivers (gotta do it before the ban or heightened restrictions) and I'm delayed until next Friday.
Any chance it's just from the number I've gotten over the past few months and five of these at once or something else???

Maybe there is a backlog of paperwork due to increased demand.

Kind of concerning. Not sure what the problem would be. Never had an issue in the past

The Dems in charge (Holder, Obama and the brady bunch) have said that they need to:
1) change the way people think about guns and
2) do this under the radar.
Who would really know what they are up to.

(Note that #2 has worked on quite a few members of this forum).

Delayed could be for a number of reasons.
Your name is close to someone who cannot obtain a firearm is one example.
Back logs, computer down, or a clerk is reading in the bathroom.

If there was a real problem, they would disapprove.

Thank you. That makes me feel a little better

Most likely due to the number of items purchased at one time

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Got the call from the shop today. I'm good to go. I can pick them up whenever.
