My question to you is this: Can you say with absolute certainty that waiting periods do no good?
I cannot ..... but I don't think they will deter a determined nut. I will defer to Benjamin Franklin on this: "Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase temporary security will have neither."
When in doubt, err on the side of Liberty.
A waiting period might
provide a bit of (likely temporary) security, but is will most surely erode Liberty.
There is a natural tendency among today's "legislators" to legislate.... as if piling on just. one. more. Law. will stop the inherently lawless ....... to quote one local "Progressive" lawmaker, "Do you suggest we do Nothing!?!?!
..... I really don't care what he does, so long as it does not affect me and mine.
