Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: your tax dollars at work.

No, I kid, this is actually a pretty interesting (if dry but melodious) video that explains just what kind of detail going into each NICS background check. It’s a lot more rigorous than many people believe it to be, and goes through a lot of steps even though it doesn’t take a whole lot of time.

Gotta wonder what’s in the non-customer version, though.
