    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!:cool:

    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

    Florida has a three day wait for handguns but no wait for long guns unless you put the long gun on the same 4473 form as a handgun purchase. Then you have to wait for both.

    No wait in FL on handguns if you have a CCW or you're trading in a handgun towards the purchase of the new one, 3 days if you don't.. No wait on long guns. BC done to everyone, including those of us with CCWs. No BC or paperwork on a FTF sale.

    There is no waiting period here. The dealers even try to package ammo in the deal!

    Are they waiting for a background check or cooling off period?

    7 day "cooling off" period here in RI. That's for handguns and long guns. Backround check is fairly quick here.

    Like someone who wants to shoot someone doesn't have a gun already or they will not commit the crime after "cooling off". And said person that wants someone dead won't use a car/knife/hands to accomplish their goal. Why isn't America calling for a waiting period for any item that might be misused?

    I like how Texas treats the CCW as the BC. I'm lucky to have a great LGS that doesn't charge me any BC fees or other BS(Florida).

    Does the cooling off period apply to people who already legally possess firearms?
