On Friday our governor signed into law four new “gun control” bills one of which imposes a three day waiting period on gun purchases. It’s reported that nine other states already have this restriction in place. For those of you in those states, how has this impacted your gun shows? (Our annual gun collector/classic arms show is coming up in three weeks and I doubt that it will impact this years’ show but wonder about subsequent years.)

I can run the 4473 for any local buyers and you can collect it after the 3 days if that helps any board members.

IL now has a 72 hour wait for long guns. It has cost me sales at WI shoots. I have also heard it has affected snow sales in the southern part of WI.

Any waiting period is going to cause a decrease in impulse purchases. Those who are committed will buy anyways. It is all about doing something, instead of doing something that would help. Just another hoop to jump through.

Just remember, as minor as some of these regs may seem when introduced, they are the thin edge of the wedge. The forces arrayed against gun owners are not looking for a compromise that will make America safer. They are looking for the removal of guns from as many non government hands as possible and EVERY regulation is a step forward for them. They take the long view and understand it’s a multi generational fight. Do not underestimate them, even with your 2cd Amendment.

FFL dealers must follow the laws of the state that the buyer lives in even when the buyer is out of state. It gets harder all the time to do the right thing.

The next big push against private use of firearms is coming with restrictions on ammunition. It’s all in the greater plan that Canvasback speaks of. A gun is a worthless instrument without a way to feed it.

By design Mark. We do not have a gun problem in this country as much as we have a mental health problem. But they will not go there at all. Every major city, has a homeless problem and every homeless situation has a large number of mental health issues behind them. Addictions, mental health and the refusal of those in charge to deal with the issues by any means other than spending more money on things which have proven to not work for decades. Kind of like the War on Drugs. And how well has that gone so far?

After 60 years of the War on Drugs I know that the Government is incapable of winning that or the newer War Against Guns so it is becoming a War on Legal Guns. They can make ownership more expensive or more difficult and will try to chip away at selected gun ownership and rights while pretending that that is all they want. Sane, common sense measures, translates into do what we tell you and we will leave you a bone, for now. It comes down to an attack on freedoms for those they disagree with. They do not want you to have walls, guns, or extra security, yet they live behind gated communities, with extra security, some of which is armed. Hypocrites. I am glad I am near the end of my lifespan because I call BS on all of them.

John I cringe with every new revenue bill. Taxation alone on ammo could hurt us a lot.

I can certainly agree with this, but we have seen the states defunding many things, among them, mental health care in all forms and levels.
