I still don't really understand all this. Where his parents live and where he lives are still in the same state. Correct? You mean to tell me that it's up to counties/municipalities individually to decide who gets a "purchase permit"? Seems like there shouldn't be a problem with getting this permit, as long as the residence discrepancy doesn't cross state lines.
Wow! All this beauracracy to wade through before you can even exercise your constitutional right...which you should be able to do at will or whim?! Makes me love my state even more!
