Are we missing the point here? Why all of this crap to get a handgun? Did the time anand had to wait really accomplish a damn thing, other than to cause him frustration and put his name on the BATF's list? Is the world so much safer now? The govt. was apprehensive about this "alien" buying a handgun, but I'll bet they sure as hell have no compunction whatsoever about stealing his hard-earned money from his paycheck via the euphemistic term "withholding."

anand, you have my sympathy for your travails. I hope you enjoy your new gun in this great land of ours saddled with an intrusive, semi-criminal, out-of-control government.
Reading "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal," by Ayn Rand, should be required of every politician and in every high school.

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."
--Patrick Henry, during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution (1788)

"When citizens fear their government, you have tyranny; when the government fears its citizens, you have freedom."
--Thomas Jefferson
