    So, the other day, I went in with great excitement to purchase my first gun. Everything was in perfect order. I had my GC, AFL, CPL, all in hand, and then boom, denied by NISC. I could not believe it. I examined all the federally prohibitive criteria, and non apply to me. My last big offense was a speeding ticket 11 years ago.

    Needless to say, it as a very embarrasing experience. :(

    I waited this long, and what happened. If there was a problem, why would they issue me an AFL, followed by a CPL? Both times I had to submit fingerprints for the FBI background check, not to mention the gazillion times I've been fingerprinted before I received my Green Card. Bottom line, my background and record is about as clean as can be.

    I really hope this is some sort of a clerical mix-up. Any idea what else could be happening here? I would appreciate some insight as I pursue an appeal.

    What's NISC?
    I would go try to purchase somewhere else first to see if it happens again.

    I had a 2 day wait my first time I did the background check, they do a special background check AIQ or something like that and sometimes they cannot do it in one day...

    maybe you heave an evil nemesis with a similar name.

    I'd petition it

    Mine also came up with a wait when I bought my gun from Kesselring's. Apparently (according to Kesselring's) this is typical for law enforcement, millitary and aliens. The gun shop can call the powers that be and have a supervisor look into it and possibly override it, whhich is what happened in my case. I was out in 45 minutes even though the initial answer was "hold".

    I only had that happen on my first two purchases.

    After that, I've never waited more than 5 minutes.

    Don't worry about it. This happened to me exactly, just like the way you explained it. Make sure you get the NTN number to have it appealed. I got the approval 1 week after I appealed. I have bought 3 hanguns after that in 2 different occasions. (I went crazy). 2 week ago , I bought 2 handguns with a "delay", which preoceeded to a "proceed" the next day. Yesterday, I went to purcahse another one - another delay - but approved to proceed TODAY.:)

    Well, just to let you guys know, I'm now an American Citizen. Newly naturalized, and more than relieved.

    So now, all those state, and federal representatives can fear the wrath of my single vote :) and of course while I'm very happy that we got HR1052 sorted out, it no longer applies to me. However I think it's an important 2nd amendment decision for Washington State, now to see whether I can get a refund on my AFL... :p

    Thanks

    Today's the day... If you have a valid AFL and you're a green card holder you can toss that AFL in a vault some where and forget about it... you no longer need it !!!

    Yay!

    Just as I begin to set up residency in Alaska, it becomes law, maybe it was my fault.

    I've already pitched my AFL (after becoming American) and CPL anyway (all carry types are legal here without a permit), and my CPL requires WA residency.

    Hi, all

    I could buy two pistols on 26th without EFL and took only 2days of waiting time.
    Thank you for all working this issue.

    My next step is get CPL, hope it goes easy as get guns.

    Anyway, I bought Walther P22 and Para Usa PDA 3" 45cal.

    IMHO, if you are not an American citizen,then you have no business being here in the first place;let alone carryin' a firearm. The way I see it,if you are not a citizen you are not entitled to ANY Constitutional freedoms or civil rights. If you want to enjoy these liberties either become a citizen legaly or get the #%*# outta my country.

    i completely disagree with Bishop.357

    treat people the way you want to be treated, no matter where they're from

    that goes for civil rights too



    I find it somewhat sad that so many people attempt to make the argument that the right to self defense is innate or God-given and the 2nd Amendment only describes it, not creates it. ....then these same people attempt to restrict or deny other people rights based on utterly retarded criteria like say, where someone was born.

    I disagree with Bishop. They are called unalienable rights.. not the enumerated rights of citizens only. There were 10 that were so important that they even listed them to avoid future confusion. Somehow, we still screwed that one up.

    My mother is a naturalized citizen. Do you have any idea how long that process takes? I can tell you - it ain't fast. So why should she have been forced to give up her right to effective self-defense during the naturalization process?

    That is just an irrational idea.
