I thought there were no background checks in America. I am surprised that some on this forum would comply with background checks with all the talk of standing up to government and not complying regards gun controls. Still its better than here.

yes there are background checks. when you purchase a firearm from an FFL they call in for a background check. when you apply for a CC permit they do a background check. been that way for several years now.

Lol man I would have been frustrated as hell glad it went ok this time.

You thought wrong ,most all gun sales require a background check in america,unless you are a dealer everyone has to have one unless you buy it from an individual, but that is subject to change soon i think.But even then that gun ever gets used in a crime be sure you have a bill of sale from when you sold that gun to whom ever it was you sold it too.

Here in Oklahoma the permit process can and does take 90 to 120 days from time of submitting paperwork. I do question to some extent the reasoning of some of the applicants. In the carry class I attended, some of the folks had never handled a gun in their lives. They did get their 50 rounds down range, hit the target a few times and managed not to shoot any class members. The point is, shouldn't they be more aware of handling and safety with firearms. The class was more geared on legalities. Heaven help they should ever have to pull a gun in defense. The outcome may be a disaster.

IMO, the covering of the legalities is very important. i think that for beginners, they might put more emphasis on the handling and use of a firearm. my also have always advocated, that a person practice on a regular basis.

i will also add this, just because a person is legal to carry and can doesn't always mean they should. carrying is a very huge responsibility and if not treated peoperly can be more liability for the person than asset.

There is a big difference between laws that have been on the books for many, many years... and new law that would reclassify LAC's as criminals should they refuse to comply... but of course your trolling, tea and crumpet self already knew that.
