When I bought my pistol, I had to fill out paperwork with very specific info about myself and the pistol, and then had to wait 7 days before it was mine. I don't see why everybody shouldn't go through the same regardless of where they buy one (ccw permit holders notwithstanding). It's easy to just save that background check and firearm data instead of discarding it within 24 hours.
When I obtained my permit to poses a handgun I had to wait a couple of months. When I purchased my last pistol I had to wait a couple of weeks. Maybe that should be the norm.
This reminds me of the old story where a gentleman asks a women if she would sleep with him for a million dollars. She says she would. He then asks if she would do it for $10. She retorts angrily "What do you think I am, a prostitute"? The man replies, "we've already determined that, now we're just negotiating price".
To be short sighted or narrow minded at this time when parents have lost their children to a brutal attack is wrong.
Please define "short sighted" and "narrow minded".
