Big Day for Gun Sales

Wow. 600 employees to do background checks?

(CNN) — The busiest shopping day of the year also saw a major boom for gun sales, with the federal background check system expected to set a record of more than 144,000 background checks Friday, according to the FBI.

The staggering number of checks — an average of almost three per second, nearly three times the daily average — falls on the shoulders of 600 FBI and contract call center employees who will endure 17-hour workdays in an attempt to complete the background reviews in three business days, as required by law, FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer said.

    Didn’t we have a story not too long ago that most federal employees are bored on the job with lack of things to do, and have a porn surfing problem?

    Why not re-direct the underutilized employees to this?

    …but I’m sure Democrats would complain about that idea because it interferes with Federal employee right to surf porn on the job or their right to do nothing on the backs of the rest of us.
