Such an inconvinence. At that rate I can never cash in on a deal unless by pure stinking luck.
They're working on removing requiring a permit to purchase here in MI. Just has to get through the senate I believe.

I thought getting a HSC here in Commiefornia was dumb, but having to get it for long guns and waiting that long.

I've done paperwork for about a dozen people plus my wife and myself and none o us waited over 3 weeks

From the outside looking in, I don't think I could handle the crap you folk put up with in IL. The idea that I need to apply for and wait for the state to send me a permission slip to purchase a legal product would drive me...out of the state. Effin Cigarettes kill more people per year than guns, does IL require that purchasers apply for a special permission card to buy those? How about cars, or liquor?
