4,000 FBI requests for agents to retrieve guns from prohibited buyers

2016 numbers — total number of guns actually seized by FBI was not available.

WASHINGTON— Federal authorities sought to take back guns from thousands of people the background check system should have blocked from buying weapons because they had criminal records, mental health issues or other problems that would disqualify them.

The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) vets millions of gun purchase transactions every year. But the thousands of gun seizure requests highlight persistent problems in a system where analysts must complete background checks within three days of the proposed purchase. If the background check is not complete within the 72-hour time limit, federal law allows the sale to go forward. ATF agents are asked to take back the guns if the FBI later finds these sales should have been denied.

Retrieving guns from someone who shouldn't have been allowed to buy it, but was. Now that's a job I wouldn't want - no way, no how, no amount of money.

The article says, 'last year' which I assume means 2016 - Obama. DAMN! I was all excited to do a post last night, Trump: GUN GRABBER! No doubt the FBI will be ordered to stop searching for these people.
