sounds like a pannic statment because of the new president being democratic. but any law will like said have to go through the system witch takes time. we had that once for a very short time I do belive it was called the Braidy bill witch was later changed and now they do a background and depending on your background if you can or can't buy , buy that day, wait 1 day, or wait three days. I dont mind it if I had to wait a few days its not like I have ever wanted to buy a gun and use it the same day any ways and I think it helps keep hot heads from killing some one any ways.

Every gun I have purchased in NH has taken around 1 week. This is due to buying at Wally World on the weekend and the FBI system database being down or unmanned. I have also witnessed others getting cleared in 10 minutes during the weekdays from gunstores. Just a timing thing I guess. When I buy a gun I would really like to take it home the same day... I do not like anxiety.

No waiting in the Great State of Texas. You pass the background over the phone and walk out with it. All hail Texas.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

Same in Tennessee, it takes about ten minutes to buy a hand gun, if you pass the BG check.
