Waiting periods at gun shows.

Post by Japle » Sun May 06, 2018 10:00 am

So, Orange County wants to pass a law requiring that gun sales between private individuals at gun shows be subject to a three-day waiting period.
Aside from the obvious fact that such a law won’t reduce crime in the slightest, my question is, how would they enforce such a law? How would the authorities know such a sale even took place? If one individual sells a gun to another individual, there’s no record of the sale. Florida doesn’t have gun registration, you know.
Does Orange County plan on assigning cops to wander around gun shows, hoping to spot private sales? Is that really the best use of our law enforcement resources?
The gun crimes we’re experiencing aren’t related to waiting periods in any way. They’re the work of terrorists, maniacs and inner-city gangs. The maniacs – often identified and then ignored well before they kill – get their guns legally. Terrorists and gang members are already prohibited from obtaining guns. Does anyone think a waiting period would stop them?
The cities with the highest rates of gun crime and also the cities with the strictest gun laws. If gun control laws reduced gun crime, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit and Washington D.C. would be crime-free paradises instead of taking turns as “The Murder Capitol of the USA”.

It's an unenforceable feel good law that will be applied arbitrarily. Just be wary should it pass and you choose to not adhere to it because I wouldn't be surprised if they expended an effort to enforce for a few months and then forget about it.

It is a preemption violation.

Unconstitutional, just like every other restrictive gun law.

You can bet the farm there will be several undercover LEOs at every gun show. They will be easy to spot though. Just look for the people who approach everyone carrying a gun around for sale. Next one you go to just watch the people and you'll spot them.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.
