The waiting period was a joke. You had to wait 48 hours for a handgun, but could buy a long gun and leave with it. Was supposed to be a cooling off period. One of those feel good laws.

Almost the same in NC. You can walk with an AR but have to have a "Permit to Buy and Handgun"to get a pistol. Which takes a week or so to get from the Sheriffs Office unless you are a CCL holder. If you have a CCL there is no wait because you already went thru all background crap. Kinda screwie I think

I find it hard to wait the 3 days, or so, for a pistol to get here from Davidson's & hard to imagine going into a store, handling one & deciding you want it, then have to leave without it. Seems I heard some states make you wait as much as 10 days. As already said, "feel good legislation". If I ever get angry enough to kill someone, having to wait that long to do it is just gonna make me angrier.

When I bought my Bersa, in MD we had to go through the bkgrd check - it took 5 weeks after putting the money on the counter.

Musta used pony express. A back ground check is instantaneous over the phone. Before we got our CHL, they'd call in & get it done in about the same amount of time it took for us to fill out the 4473.
