MD Backlog

I saw on the News that Maryland gun sales have skyrocketed.

MD has a waiting period. During that time they would run a background check.

The time the check takes has gone from one day to TEN WEEKS.

This is absurd.

In VA where I live gun sales have been huge as well. Way higher than MD. Background checks here take about 5 minutes. Even at the gunshows. I can buy a handgun and walk away with it right then. In addition our crime rate is lower. No blood in the streets.

--I think MD uses it to discourage buyers.

almost hit 100 days to get my lower. 100 days! put the paperwork in mid-March, got the lower last Thursday.

Actually, you "know" it is to discourage people from buying. That is the actual purpose of all these laws.

Grace and peace.

That is unbelievable, and I can't help but wonder if that is also illegal...

As Dr. King said, "A right delayed is a right denied."

Any bets on how fast Democratic politicians in MD would scream bloody murder if people who were elligible to vote were having to wait months to be registered?
