Hi all,

I'm new to the site, and have a burning question.

I was told one of the reasons the Brady Law was put into effect years ago is to give a purchaser of a weapon a little cool off period in case he was looking for his astranged wife. (just a scenario) The burning question is, how or why is it possible for someone with a ccw permit able to make a purchase and walk away with the weapon on the spot and bypass the whole Cool Off Period?

Riddle me that!

You dont need a CCW permit to buy a handgun or any weapon for that matter within 10 minutes and take it home here in Ohio... I think that law is on a State by State basis, not Federal.

I purchased two pistols this year. The first before getting my CCW and the second afterwards. I had to wait the same amount of time for each.
About 10 minutes. That ten minutes starts with me saying "I'll take it", and ends with me paying for it. In between was a couple forms, a phone call, and a hand written bill of sale by the LGS.

None in Oklahoma either. Hooray for states with friendly gun laws! I just wish we would pass open carry already.
Oh, and on Nov 1st a new law goes into effect that extends the "Make My Day Law" to a persons workplace. My favorite part of the law:

D. A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

ohio has friendly gun laws til you try to transport them or buy something that holds more than 30 rounds.

Florida has a three day waiting period, unless you have CWP, then you can leave with it that day. I am guessing it is because if you passed to get a CWP then you should be responsible to not do anything stupid.

Yeah, you gotta love that Open Carry is legal in OH... unless you are in your car, then you have to have a CCW... which pretty much means if you are going to OC, then you better be walking, or willing to unload and store your weapon securely while you're in the car... then get it back out when you get where you're going and hope you dont get caught 'brandishing' when you do:rolleyes:

As for the 30 round limit? I'd rather have 30 than 10...

Wait until you apply for CCW, that is the longest wait ever. Just when you start thinking you were denied without being told, you will get a letter saying you can pick up your license at the sherrif's office. That is how it went for me anyway...

South Dakota used to have a 3 day wait unless you had a Concealed Pistol Permit. However, that law was recently changed so that no one has a 3 day wait.

Unless you have purchased a gun within the the previous 12 months and have the receipt. Then you can walk away with the gun after you pay for it and have a "proceed" from FDLE.
However, this all changes in October, where there will be no 3 day wait.

wow i didn't realize how much it is a pain to get guns in other states i live in Alaska and can walk into a store buy a handgun stick it in my waise belt and walk out. No CCW laws. Main reason we have a CCW class up here si to be able to carry consealed in other states that accept out of state CCW permits and to train people on propper techniques.

Komrad Klinton was in power. The Brady Bunch tried to get as much passed as they could. The next election changed that for them, and they learned by that and didn't go for it as bad this time. It did impose a national waiting period as well, but that went away after the instant check was in place and the states could go back to doing things the way they did before the Brady gun law travisty. The "asault ban part of it timed out a few years ago, and polititians learned that if they reinstated it they could be fired. So no new gun bans at this time. But don't think for a mimute that they have given up. Every year their croneys in congress try to reistate the whole thing , so that you are restricted to their hearts content.


Shoot safely, often and well.

No waiting period in Indiana.
To get a carry permit (allows open or concealed carry), go to the courthouse of county sheriff, get fingerprinted and fill out the paperwork. Wait 2-4 months for bachground checks. If approved, your perty pink permit comes in the mail.
Sign it and you're good to go.
