|rebelBullDawg325||lets see in GA you can buy/own a shotgun or rifle as soon as you turn 18, no waiting period. neither have to be registered. at 21 you can purchase a handgun, not sure on the length of waiting period. there used to be 3 days but that may have been dropped, my dad has a Concealed carry permit so he doesnt have to worry about that anyways. last i checked IF YOU BUY THEM AT A GUN SHOW THE WAITING PERIOD DOES NOT APPLY. not exactly sure how/why this works but doesn't bother me. also, with the handguns. as previously stated you have to be 21 to purchase butcan be 18 to "own". thats awkward too. and i believe as young as 16 if you are going to the outdoors for any purposes where wildlife may pose a danger, you can have your handgun with you with parents consent. the concealed carry laws get even more fuzzy. dont quote me on any of these but i think they're pretty close to correct. what it boils down to really is once you get the gun just use common sense about where you take it and what you do with it and you shouldnt have any charges|

I like being able to buy a gun when I want a gun.
My wife got her 38 the same day I bought my Glock 27 it took us about 45 min.
I'm okay with background checks... I'm okay with convicted Felons not being able to have guns! And I love the our laws.

waiting periods to buy guns = "keeping law abiding citizens disarmed periods"
the bad guys don't have waiting periods, why should we?
here in VA there is no waiting period on handguns that i'm aware of, other than the 30 minute wait it took for my background check to be completed at the gun show.

I beg to differ
Since the founding of the United States to the best of my knowledge very few people have possessed the necessary skills and tools to build their own “SAFE” firearm. In the Early 1700s to today we have all purchased our weapons from either Gunsmiths or Gun retailers. A few of us were lucky enough to have guns passed down to us by generations of Parents or Grandparents. I argue that the same right that allows us to own guns would also allow us to purchase them.

|debruins||whooaa, my brain is functioning thank you very much|
|04-23-2008 11:32 PM|
|skeeter||If you can't obtain them, you can't keep or bear them. It's very clear to anyone with a functional brain.|
|04-23-2008 09:44 PM|
|debruins||actually jeeptales the amendment is about keeping and bearing them not buying them, once u have it they cant do anything about it, u have the right to keep it, no where does it say u have the right to buy it, so its actually not that clear :-P|

|ccain||I had a CPL for West Virginia... But seeing as how I don't live there anymore.... Oh hell! I still don't need a gun! I quit carrying a gun when I figured out that I could kill a man with my bare hands! Besides! I have Tiny!|

Maryland is no wait for a long gun, unless its regulated (AR-15s etc.) than it falls under the handgun laws.
Handgun law is at the least 7 day wait, or until the paperwork is recieved. 7 days is also the maximum, but you have to file a petition etc. etc. Usually you can pick it up in 7-14 buisness days, and its usually 10 days total (7 buisness days).
Also, 1 gun per month, unless you have one of those expensive collectors liscense thingys.

..."Amendment II (1791)
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. "
How much clearer can this be???

Yea Cali used to 5 days I belive on pistols then we got Mz Boxer in our state and we all got F'td. I used to be able to atleast buy an Sks Rifle becouse it was a Colector type gun as over the counter for like 69.95 now they are on the wait list and like $200.00
So if I go out of state is there anything special that has to be done?......

In PA...(for handguns and rifles) there is none unless you count the time it takes to make a phone call to the State Police and fill out the paperwork (10 minutes max))
If you want to purchase muzzleloader...no call or papaerwork..You just need a driver's license.

Here in TX it only takes as long as it takes to finish the paperwork. In the last 10 years have bought (at different times) a 30-06 rifle, a 22-10 rifle, a Glock 9mm, a 357 Magnum, and a 44 magnum. Longest it took any of 'em was like 1/2 an hour...and that was only because the place was busy. (even bought the Glock and 357 during my lunch hour! )
Oh and by bought I mean you are walking out the door with the gun and ammo within the 1/2 an hour.

I have a CPL, I don't have to wait for anything.
For those who don't have a CPL, it's 7 days for a pistol and no waiting period for rifles, in the state of Washington.
|04-22-2008 11:18 PM|
|MR.CLIFFORD||It is 11:17 right now where I am. So, I would have to wait until 9:10am in the morning if I wanted to buy it legally. Doesn't matter which gun.|
