That is why I love Alabama...two days! in my county it costs $20/yr for a max of 5 years. In Arkansas, where I last lived, much much much more red tape and more expense. It is amazing how perverted the right to bear arms has become and how much interference/control the government has been able to establish. Background check, references, fee and viola!
Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
