Waiting periods on long guns
 
what are the different waits in your state? Cali 14 days long or hand gun.

MR.CLIFFORD 04-22-2008 11:18 PM

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.

amy 04-22-2008 11:59 PM

I have a CPL, I don't have to wait for anything. http://hobbsclan.us/anime/smiley_595.gif
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.

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! :punk:)

Oh and by bought I mean you are walking out the door with the gun and ammo within the 1/2 an hour.

MOz 04-23-2008 11:42 AM

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.

That is th ebiggest bunch of BS I have heard yet! 14 days is so incredibly rediculuous. I thought Jersey was bad, it was 3 days (when I lived there).

Tj Bunch 04-23-2008 11:50 AM

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

Cali sucks.

So if I go out of state is there anything special that has to be done?......

What About???
 
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."...


..."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???

JCS05Rubi 04-23-2008 07:34 PM

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.

ccain 04-23-2008 09:05 PM

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! :flipoff: Besides! I have Tiny! :D

debruins 04-23-2008 09:44 PM

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

skeeter 04-23-2008 11:32 PM

If you can't obtain them, you can't keep or bear them. It's very clear to anyone with a functional brain.

debruins 04-23-2008 11:51 PM

whooaa, my brain is functioning thank you very much

Then you should have no trouble understanding the Constitution, it's written in fairly plain English and there's a wealth of supporting documentation from those who formed this nation to help clarify any misunderstanding.;)

When the second Amendment was written into finest document ever drafted (second only to the Bible) the world has ever seen, it had built in provisions for its improvement. They are call “Amendments” a Constitutional Amendment is not easy to pass it was never meant to be an easy task. That is because an Amendment can only be past by the will of the people. Politicians work everyday to whittle away at our rights by manipulating the Courts and Unconstitutional political edict to strip us of the rights our for-fathers fought for and died to preserve. We are not a democracy we are a Representative Government whose elected leaders should follow the will of their constituency. Goofy state laws like the ones you are talking about drive me nuts. We need to hold our elected officials to the task they were charged with.

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.

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.

jeeptales 04-24-2008 02:16 PM

One more for Texas!
 
Like you guys...

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.

And don't forget it's not just 14 days, it's 14 24hour periods. If you filled out the paper work at noon, then you can't pick it up until after noon 14 days later.

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
