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?
