What's that saying we always use. "We don't need new laws, that just need to enforce the ones we already have"?

That is only a summary of the act. It will help when we see exactly what is meant by delayed.

I got denied back in 2012 or 2013. When I got the call from the ATF agent informing me of that, I was able to have the FFL who sold it to me sign it back into his book and hold it for me while I sought to have the denial reversed. The denial was due to a restraining order taken out in New Jersey in 1989. Restraining orders don't die in NJ--a judge has to kill it. I finally discovered in 2014 that a judge had dissolved the restraining order in 1992. The denial was based on out-of-date information from the police department that issued the initial emergency order. With that information, I appealed the denial. The FBI reversed it in January of 2015.

I wonder what would have happened to me if this was law back then. Would I have been prosecuted because of a failure of a local PD 1,200 miles away to keep their records current or would I have been exonerated and not have to wait over two years to have my rights restored?
