I shouldn't have to do anything, in fact the DOJ person I spoke to said that if I have nothing keeping me from owning a firearm that it will clear up once they contact the courts and get the information they need. The problem I have is that they will not tell me why I am delayed, claiming that "I do not have access to the system and all the analysts are busy with the backlog". Seems strange to me that the person answering the number I was given cannot look that information up.
