Default Background check

Went to buy a new handgun yesterday, did the paperwork, and got denied!
Bought a rifle from this place several months ago, and a handgun last thanksgiving weekend, no problem. Over the last 10 yrs, have bought over 2 dz guns, never an issue.

So is that the federal check, or state and local? Also did they inform you why, or just tell you denied? I had a background check done on me to join a local gun club. Was always curious what is in one.

I have a buy permit, dealer double checked all info.
This is using the 4473 form, it's federal.
Mn state does not register guns. As far as I know, all states require a 4473 background check.

I would guess you were denied because your personal information matches someone else who has recently has lost their right to own.

In our area, we call it a "near hit". Your name, date of birth, etc matches someone else enough that the computer has denied. You can appeal, and prove you are not that person.

As it gets more difficult to obtain and own firearms we become more like Venezuela.
