Would you want a card to not have a waiting period?

  2. No, I think it'd just lead to confiscation.

    I live in California, we have a 10 day wait on everything and more B.S. with handguns. The "point" of a waiting period is to prevent "crimes of passion" meaning that you'll "cool off" and not want to shoot someone 10 days later :rolleyes:
    If you already own a gun...why do you need to wait 10 days? I know the arguement I'll hear is that there is no record of gun ownership, etc. My point is that if I have several firearms and was to do something stupid with them I'd not need go buy a new gun. Would you be willing to have the option of a onetime wait period with your first gun purchase where afterwards you recieve a card that states you already own a firearm that you could present with your next purchase to forego the wait but still have the background check? (Not a mandatory thing for all the people who think this would be registration)

    Please, I don't need the speeches about not needing waiting periods or background checks...This is just an idea to maybe work with what restrictions we already have in place.

    I forgot to mention that I live in the PRK and owna handgun so I'm already registered as a handgun owner, this makes a waiting period even more of a pointless-hassle for me. And I think waiting periods are worthless anyway.

    After having experienced the royal pain that it is to purchase handguns in California.... yes, I definitely would.

    And yes, I know, "no compromise", cold dead hands, shooting wars, etc...

    In some states their CCW permits allow you to bypass the waiting period. I believe Florida is one. And I think Texas is another.

    Texas has no waiting period on firearm purchases, with or without a CHL. A CHL allows you to skip the background check as you have already been through a thorough one to obtain the license, which is nice.

    If I had the choice, I'd move to a state that had no waiting period so I could skip both the wait and the card. If I couldn't move, and already owned other firearms, then I still wouldn't go for the card for the fact that it would be one more piece of garbage floating around in my wallet.

    Texas doesnt have a waiting period. However, a Texas CHL holder does get to bypass the NICS check, thereby eliminating the possibility of a "delayed" response from NICS.

    I have one. In Arkansas, we have no waiting period and a CCW permit preempts the NCIS check as well.

    Sure, but I am reminded of CA's capricious firearm paperwork requirements.

    The BFSC certificate (and fee) was to be taken and paid once, and was then good "for life".

    I've since had to retake the "test" (now as the HSC) and pay twice because my BFSC suddenly wasn't good anymore. And the HSC expires every five years (at least until the next whatever test comes out). :rolleyes:


    Added: I thought this was meant only for California, where we're already hosed.

    In Connecticut, there is a 14 day waiting period on long guns if you don't have a PCPR or a hunting license. It's definetely a benefit to have a waiting period pass.

    Don't need a card or have to wait now why would I want that? Why would you want that? or do you?
    We can buy in a business, FFL makes a call we take the gun home, we can buy/sell to another resident face to face, we can advertise in the local paper etc. all without anyone else involved. Why would I want or need to change that? Can we all say unneeded regulation?

    Maybe a "pass " is a bonus where you are but I don't want to need one. If one has a CCW here a call buying from a FFL isn't even needed, and I would like to see that law abolished.

    In Florida there is no waiting period if you have a CCW.

    How is that??? Why doesn't my Florida CCW remove the need for NICS???

    And yea, FL CCW lets you (me, done it 6 times already) walk out with a gun same day:evil:

    EDIT: No CCW in FL = 3 days wait on handguns (not sure about long guns). 5 days in Broward and Dade county.
