For years I've been reading on this forum about the infamous waiting period. People would say they've purchased their weapon but now they have to wait and time goes slowly while waiting..... Now that I've purchased my first handgun, and I'm in the waiting period before I can have my handgun, I fully understand the slowness of time. What a crazy stupid law this is. Do they think that criminals can't plan their evil deeds by waiting 11 days? Why penalize law abiding citizens? What do you think the USA citizens would do if there was a waiting period after the purchase of a vehicle or cigarettes? Both of these kill far more people than citizen held weapons. Most would say a waiting period after the purchase of a vehicle or cigarettes is ridiculous because they can be purchased legally. Which, in my opinion, make it even more absurd that we have to wait for our weapons because not only is our weapons legal it is a guaranteed right placed into the Constitution by our founding fathers. .....steps off soapbox.
