So pumped was going to get my first ar today. Had the paper work finished and was in line with my buddy both of us already handed the money over. Proud new owners of 2 ruger ar 556 AR15s. But wait! NICS has been down all day and can't approve to officially give me my new gun. So now we have to wait for them to get the system back up and running. No idea if it will be ready tomorrow or when. So happy to live in the land of the free that won't hand over my gun I just bought and have every right to be playing with right now. But I bet some people who plan on using the same type of gun in the wrong way could get their hands on one today if they wanted to.
