CCW bypasses background checks
 
I just found out that in some states, such as Kansas, holding a CCW permit waves the NICS background check for buying firearms as long as the permit has been issued in the state of the purchase and has been issued in the last 5 years. This is legal according to the Brady Law of 1998. If that is legal according to the Federal Gov't laws then why isn't this the case in WI and other states who have concealed carry?

Yep Idaho is the same way. Just show your ccp and pay the man for the gun and you are on your way to the range with a new toy. No background check, and no wait.

In MI, it's because some stores (usually big box) do that just because they don't believe the conceal license is adequate.

It's the same here in Iowa, it was like that in NC when I lived there as well. I haven't bought from a big box store but I think places like Gander Mountain will run it anyways.

With a Florida CCW license the NICS is still required, but the waiting period is waved.

Does that work in Texas?

CHL holders in Texas must fill out the transfer application, but no other checks are required. No wait.

In PA you still have all the checks and paperwork to go through.

Here in Pa., a CCW is not valid to bypass the Insta-Check. You still have to submit to one, but no waiting period, unless there is a denial and then you have to appeal it if it's invalid. That happens very infrequently unless you have a record.
