wish I could afford to buy 12 guns/year!
There is really no way to be exempted from the background check required by federal law to purchase a firearm from a dealer. Everyone who purchases a firearm from an FFL holder/dealer gets background checked. It's just that not all checks happen at the time of sale.
The law accepts proof of a qualifying background check that has taken place within the last few years. Some state-issued handgun licenses/permits require a qualifying background check. Such permits/licenses are therefore accepted as proof that the buyer has been background checked.
Come on down to Harrodsburg and buy their cheaper price and dealer knows what going on.
I didn't know LA had liftetime permits, though IN was the only one...is that brand new?
That is because a regular carry license, which expires, shows you passed a background check at least that recently, a lifetime could mean you haven't passed a check for a long time, possibly
That is because KY literally runs a background check on very single permit holder every single month...so you're getting checks run constantly whether you fill out forms or buy guns at FFL's or not
It's comparatively new in Louisiana. I understand the theory. The theory is inaccurate. You still have to have the background check every five years, same as the regular permit. You just pay for a lifetime's worth at once, with a slight discount. I think it pays for itself after 20 years.
Well, what do you mean by that, exactly?
I have two responses to this statement.
1-That depends on the state and the license in question
2-I would say that, no, a carry license does NOT = no background check for a gun purchase (from an FFL)...I would say that, in applicable states, a carry license = the background check you already had performed when you got the license has a certain lifespan during which it can be applied to firearm acquisitions from FFL's
Edit: I realize you said no "new" background check for a gun purchase, in which case, yes, that is basically the case in some states, for purchases from FFL's, no "new" background check done at that moment when you are in the store
A rare use of common sense in Government.
Hence the word 'new'. No new background check has to be made when you purchase a gun through an FFL as they accept the one that was done when you got your CWP. Or did you mean to quote my post anyway as I don't understand your #1 response either since I listed SC as the state?
#1 was I can't read, I saw the word "so" where you had the postal abbreviation SC lol
I think "SC" in his post means "South Carolina."
Separate names with a comma.
