    With instant checks in place, why are there still waiting periods?

    While the waiting periods were originally put in place as a "cooling off" time should a person purchase a firearm while angry...










    Don't they know that dern rednecks can hold a grudge for more than 10 days?

    Because ten day waiting periods in Kalifornia make all the evil features on a firearm vanish like a politicians promises. :rolleyes:

    I picked up a used XD 45 earlier this week, had to wait 48 hours from the day I completed the background check paperwork. Gov. Doyle got a 48 hour waiting period passed in WI a few years ago, which is actually less the Federal law requires! :p

    CA used to be 15 days. Now it is 10. A move in the right direction, but it should be 0.

    NICS checks are federal, at least my State has decided that 7 (really 8 days) is how long it will take them to determine that I am member of their state national guard and not a threat.

    Whats a waiting period? Is it that the three minutes the dealer spends on the phone? Evil tactic, making me walk around the shop looking at more things to buy. :rolleyes:

    Its with everything. No waiting period unless their is a problem. Very rare, but have been there a couple times when a guy gets a no-go. Aawkward to say the least.

    I would humbly point out, that with an 03 C&R FFL, available to collectors across the US, $30 for 3 ears, my waiting period is how long it takes me to remove a copy of license from wallet, sign my name, hand it to dealer. That is also all of the dealer paperwork I have on purchase of a C&R firearm.

    OK- downside? You stay broke a lot. But happy.

    Here in Nevada, the only time you wait is on your first (in the state) handgun purchase...and that wait is 3 days. After that, you walk in, buy the weapon and walk out the same day. No wait on long guns (rifles) including those "evil" assault rifles.

    Here in Wyoming there is no waiting period. If you have a Wyoming Conceled Carry permit no Brady check. You can buy a handgun and walk out with it. If you do not have a concealed carry you must do a Brady check. If your record is clean you will get your handgun in 20 minutes.
