so where IS it?

In the past, it has taken weeks and months for results from the FBI check to come back. What does DHS estimate will be the turnaround time for Adam Walsh fingerprint-based FBI checks?

A: DHS will be submitting fingerprints in a new way. FBI-approved scanners will be installed which will allow DHS to scan fingerprint cards, rather than sending them over to the BCA. Once scanned, the image will be sent electronically through the BCA to the FBI. The results will be returned electronically to DHS. What we anticipate, particularly when there is no FBI record, is that the results will be returned within minutes or hours, rather than weeks or months.

its been a MONTH! where the heck is my background check??? its holding EVERYTHING up!!!!
