Default States with a waiting period

Was just wondering if any other states with a wait period for regulated fire arms purchases were having longer wait times? Here in Maryland we are supposed to have a 7 - 10 day wait period for background checks. Currently it is at about 8 weeks now. I'm on day 37 myself. These new laws they want to pass blow major **************! I was told in 2011 Maryland state police received 48,000 apps for gun purchases. In December 2012 and January 2013 they got 26,000. Any one else having problems waiting too?

Not a problem in MS, no waiting period unless there is a line at the counter.

Bought a gun in Texas recently. They didn't even call in for a background check, cause I just presented them with my Concealed Handgun License. Ah, I love the laws here!

Here in cali its awful the gun frenzy is like a sark feeding frenzy and the wait times are double or triple then you have to wait some more cause the lines are looooong i honestly think this is done on purpose to discourage people from buying guns by making the process ridiculous
