    SC has pretty good gun laws as well as a castle doctrine. Just have to pass the background check.

    TN: Carry permit can be obtained in a couple months after taking the class, having the background check done, and paying fees. My total cost excluding ammunition was under $200. The permit does not require listing the carry gun (serial number and so forth) or specify action (revolver, semi-auto, etc.).

    No city or state laws regarding purchase that do not mirror Federal law. No waiting period. You find what you like, fill out the 4473 and give money, pass the NICS check and you leave the store with gun.

    Thought of another one; no discharging a firearm inside city limits. The bad guys sure listen to this one!

    WA - cities and counties are prohibited from making their own laws regarding carrying/possession of firearms. Loaded open carry allowed outside a vehicle with no permit. Permit to conceal which also allows loaded handguns in vehicle is $55.25 and must be issued to residents within 30 days (non-residents 60 days). No restrictions on magazines. Machine guns are illegal. There is a 5 day wait on handgun purchases if you don't have the CPL. There is a database of all handguns sold by FFLs maintained by the state Department of Licensing.

    hawaii...god I hate this place

    must get a 'permit to aquire' every time you want to buy ANY gun. getting said permit to aquire is as follows (taken direct from HPD's website)

    1. Valid photo identification.
    2. Permit to acquire application.
    3. Firearms questionnaire form.
    4. Mental health waiver form.
    5. Medical Waiver form.
    6. Fingerprint card. (First time in-state purchase and $19.25 FBI fingerprinting fee.)
    7. Background check. (Background check includes, but is not limited to, warrant checks, local and national arrest history, local and national criminal history, local and national criminal convictions, any pending cases and TRO's.)
    8. Original Hunters Education card or an original Handgun Safety Training Course Affidavit. (Handguns only)
    9. Proof of U.S citizenship if born outside the United States.

    That's just the first step...after that then you have to...

    The following are needed when applying for a permit to acquire a handgun:
    1. Valid identification that includes a photograph, such as a driver's license, state identification card, military ID, or United States passport. (You must be 21 years old or older to purchase a firearm.)
    2.Complete an application for permit to acquire firearms with specific information, including: Make, Model, Caliber, Type, (revolver, Semiautomatic,etc), barrel length, and Serial Number.
    3.The name, address, and telephone number of the seller.
    4.Original Hunters Education card or an original Handgun Safety Training Course Affidavit.
    5.Proof of United States citizenship, if born outside of the United States, such as an original Valid United States Passport, original Naturalization certificate, or original Born Abroad Birth Certificate.

    or if you want a shotgun/rifle

    Permit to acquire a shotgun or rifle

    The following are needed when applying for a permit to acquire a shotgun or rifle:
    1. Valid Identification
    2. Complete an application for permit to acquire a firearm.
    3.Proof of United States citizenship, if born outside of the United States, such as an original Valid United States Passport, original Naturalization certificate, or original Born Abroad Birth Certificate.

    to top it off there's...

    14 Day Waiting Period

    NOTE: After the 14-day waiting period the permit will be valid for only 6 calendar days. Permits not picked up by the 6th day will be voided. Applicants will need to reapply and go through another 14-day waiting period, so please plan accordingly.

    then you have to register said gun(s), while there is no charge for registration, there is a fee ($10 I think) every time you apply for a permit to aquire

    REGISTRATION PROCESS

    After purchase or acquisition of the firearm return to the HPD Firearms Section no later than 5 calendar days with the following.
    1. Valid photo identification.
    2. Your original firearms permit.
    3. The firearm for inspection.

    Complete the firearms registration form and sign the firearms registration
    card.
    Out-of-State Registration


    There is no 14-day waiting period for Out-of-State Registration. Once the firearm arrives in the state you have 3 calendar days, (72 Hours), to bring it in to the Honolulu Police Department Firearms Section.

    Please have a valid photo identification and proof of citizenship, if born outside the United States, bring proof of citizenship such as an Original US Passport, Original Naturalization Certificate, Original Born Abroad Certificate, or if you are in the military your Enlisted (ERB) or Officer (ORB) Record Brief will suffice only if the document states you are a United States Citizen.

    Joint Registration

    Married couples who would like to have their firearms jointly registered in both names need to also bring the Original Marriage Certificate.

    oh and this seems like deprivation of property without due process. I understand the intent, but this is open to abuse. Seizure without due process, and no means of recourse, you don't even have to be charged with anything

    Reference §HRS 134-7.5

    Any police officer who has reasonable grounds to believe that a person has recently assaulted or threatened to assault a family or household member may seize all firearms and ammunition that the police officer has reasonable grounds to believe were used or threatened to be used in the commission of the offense. The police officer may seize any firearms or ammunition that are in plain view of the officer or were discovered pursuant to consensual search, as necessary for the protection of the officers or any family or household members.

    all NFA stuff is out the window
    Ownership, etc., of automatic firearms, silencers, etc., prohibited; penalties.

    Reference §HRS 134-8


    This section prohibits the manufacture, possession, sale, barter, trade, gift, transfer, or acquisition of any of the following:
    •automatic firearms;
    •rifles with barrel lengths less than sixteen inches;
    •shotguns with barrel lengths less than eighteen inches;
    •cannons;
    •mufflers, silencers, or devices for deadening or muffling the sound of discharged firearms;
    •hand grenades,
    •dynamite, blasting caps, bombs, or bombshells, or other explosives;
    •any type of ammunition or any projectile component thereof coated with teflon or any other similar coating designed primarily to enhance its capability to penetrate metal or pierce protective armor;
    •any type of ammunition or any projectile component thereof designed or intended to explode or segment upon impact with its target

    Any person who installs, removes, or alters a firearm part with the intent to convert the firearm to an automatic firearm shall be deemed to have manufactured an automatic firearm.

    Persons violating any of the provisions mentioned above shall be guilty of a clas C felony and shall be imprisoned for a term of five years without probation.

    Detachable ammunition magazines

    The manufacture, possession, sale, barter, trade, gift, transfer, or acquisition of detachable ammunition magazines with a capacity in excess of ten rounds which are designed for or capable of use with a pistol is prohibited. (if there has ever been a pistol version of any given rifle then magazines of more than 10 round capacity are not legal. this includes 10/22's, AR15's, kalashnikov types, and remington 700's just to name a few of the popular ones)

    This subsection shall not apply to magazines originally designed to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition which have been modified to accept no more than ten rounds and which are not capable of being readily restored to a capacity of more than ten rounds.

    Any person violating this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor except when a detachable magazine prohibited under this section is possessed while inserted into a pistol in which case the person shall be guilty of a class C felony.

    Now we techincally have CC, but only 3 temporary (read: only valid for a maximum of 6 months, all of which were revoked before the 6month period was up) permits have been issued in the last 10 years. so yeah, what's the point?

    Open carry is not permited in any way, you can't even hunt with a handgun out here.

    is closing, HAWAII SUCKS!

    Ok, Hawaii is the winner of the most onerous state, but I can't hide my disdain for Bloomberg and his anti-gun crusade. I will never live in NYC and I have hard time even visiting the city.

    Im not sure those places are even in the United States of America ! Thank god I dont live in those Communist strongholds!


    I find it so rediculous that you have to wait a certain amount of days for a background check (for those of you living in liberal hell states , a background check takes about 5 minutes over the phone) ! Im pretty sure they dont actually send you paperwork to the ATF ,then again maybe thats why it takes 5 -10 days , and if you didnt spell something right it could be longer! In Oklahoma they do the check over the phone 5 MINUTES TOPS !

    Colorado only makes me apply for, I live in a Shall Issue county, a carry permit which is very easy to get. Other than the standard 4473 there is no waiting period or anything silly.

    Typing in caps and using excessive punctuation does nothing for your argument, it only makes readers less likely to read your entire post.

    Stop in, buy it, get a box of ammo for it, take it out and shoot it. No worries.

    Ct is fairly easy to obtain a permit, although very expensive. I sent in all the paper work and 6 weeks later I got it sent back to me saying all the costs and fees had double. I payed a few hundred bucks to finally get it, plus 90 dollars just to get my picture taken, and 25 for fingerprints.

    I don't mind the conceal carry only, (technically an open carry state, but too many liberals freak out when they see a gun).

    The ability to defend yourself is a big problem in CT. You pretty much can't even draw your firearm until someone is actually causing physical harm to you. You may think you're justified in defending yourself but you probably are not. Most people in CT are afraid of guns, and any witness who may have seen you shoot someone in self defense will label you as the criminal who killed an innocent man. I have heard of it happening. Even if cops shoot a criminal for whatever reason they lose their job and get crucified. Always somehow turns into a racial hate crime.

    I wish we had a castle doctrine or stand your ground law, especially since a few of our cities make the worst cities in America list quite often, and there are daily shootings and murders and violent crimes throughout the state.

    Yes it's a blast. Law enforcement get flak all the time for shooting criminals. God forbid if the cop is a different race than the BG, or the cops shoot him too many times or beat him up too much. I Don't know how they do it day in and day out. They could easily just not chase criminals all day and save themselves being thrown in jail for defending themselves and other cops.

    Very sorry BigBay. (Love your name btw. My horse is Baylee, he's a bay, and I call him Big Bay).

    OTOH, I hate to tell ya, but I dont think all that 'strictness' is leading to anymore 'safety.' Unless you were being sarcastic!

    My city has no firearms-related laws. Texas laws are easily found at the previously-mentioned handgunlaw.us site.

    Well, let's see:

    • MA requires a license just to purchase or possess any firearm or ammo, or ammo components. If you don't have a license, and you've got a spent .22 case in your jacket, then technically you're in violation.
    • MA requires you to have a "license to carry" just to purchase a handgun.
    • MA requires you to have a "Class A" license to carry just to purchase a "large-capacity" firearm (just about any semi-auto rifle or handgun).
    • LTCs are discretionary. CLEO says no, and now you've got a court-fight, if you can afford it. Also, some towns are relatively easy to get LTCs in, some nearly impossible--all depends on the whims of the Chief.
    • LTCs are modifiable by the CLEO, so that an LTC does NOT necessarily allow you to carry.
    • The MA AG maintains a List of Approved Firearms, under MA consumer protection laws. You know, to keep cheap, poorly made guns away from stupid consumers here. The guns we can't get? Freedom Arms, Les Baer, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, etc. Also Colt Peacemakers, Mauser C96s, Colt 1911s, Lugers, Browning P-35s, Walther P-38s, etc. Also any new model, as the approval process rarely takes less than a year for those manufacturers that decide to go the distance.
    • We still have our AWB in place. Signed by Mitt Romney, thank you very much.
    • We have a "safe-storage" law. Good news: it is likely unconstitutional, as it was challenged a couple years agao, and the only reason our SJC gave for denying the challenge was that 2A doesn't apply to the states! Might be time to revisit that one.

    NC, is an 'may issue" state and it's up to the sheriff of your county of residence to issue or not. That is for both CCW and PURCHASE permits. Purchase permits take 30 days, you can get a total of 5 per year, but they will only issue two permits at an time. So you have to reapply when you need new permits. Only two plus sides to this I can see. 1- this keeps me from making snap spur of the moment purchases, 2- once you have your purchase permits they are valid for 5 years. One of these days I will be able to start saving extra permits for future purchases. It's rather cumbersome!!

    Florida is pretty good, concealed weapons license is about $175 (I think) 7 years, shall issue, 3 day wait handguns, no wait period with CWL. But some counties have a 5 day waiting period, which in my mind works out to 7 days, but I'm not sure if the extra days have to be business days as does the first three(?). No open carry, some exceptions, pre-emption, but some municipalities were ignoring that; so a new law was passed that fines them.
    No gun registration..
    No assault weapons ban...
    No magazine infringment...

    I'm sure there is more, someone can elaborate on them, If I'm wrong please post corrections.

    FL gun friendly for the most part.

    Delaware:
    select your purchase fill out form
    get NICS check approved (same day usualy unless put on delay which is rare)
    Delaware State Police check approved (same day one way or the other)
    purchase firearm and if you want ammo as well or if the store has one head to the range with it

    open carry legal everywhere but the capitol of Dover

    cc apply for permit and wait for approval (wait dependant on prothonotaries schedual and monthly business)
    once approved take CCDW class and return papers to prothonotary (again wait depended on how busy they are at the time)
    state then issues ccdw allowing cc in any part of the state that is not federaly regulated against carry (courthouses post office other federaly run or state run facilities)

    *this is the only way to carry in the capitol of dover an yes you may then carry openly but must have possesion of a CCDW card (yes it makes no sense to get a CCDW to openly carry but some people like OC and thats the only legal way to do it in the city of Dover)

    no SBS or Silencers (suppressers) directly in the law (nothing specific about SBRs but without a legal dealer here we still cant get them so its a moot point anyway)

    no Machine Guns or Destructive Devices or Any Other Weapons
    (basicly if it takes a tax stamp we cant have it here)

    no restrictions on magazine capacity or types of firearms other than that

    now that i think about it i guess one could "build" an SBR with the proper stamp and approvals but ive never heard of anyone doing so here in Delaware

    transport is legal as long as firearm is secured out of reach to the occupants of teh vehicle and ammunition is seperated from the firearm (this can be as simple as ammo still in the box next to the rifle or pistol bag so long as niether is within reach without stopping the vehicle)

    most ranges ask that firearms are in a case before bringing them into the range but rifle/shotgun racks are still viable and legal transport of a firearm so long as not loaded and ammo is out of reach

    no discharge of a firearm within city limits

    Frogomatic, have you heard of the Hawaii CCW group? They're working on a plan to challenge the laws here.

    In the municipality where I come from, guns are bad and the source of all evil.

    The state of ************ is not much better. No Evil Black Rifles or handguns that aren't DoJ approved.
