This actually happened to me yesterday. I went over to purchase my first hand gun, filled everything out, gave my SSN, there isn't anything on my record....and there was a "delay" put on my background check. No idea what that means...except maybe they were too busy to check off that I was clean. The police were out in force yesterday. Bummer too. That was my birthday gift.

In light of his service, and the fact that he had to have a good background to become a Marine, he should not have any problems buying a firearm.


If this is the case, why do your Marines go around slaughtering villages and killing innocents?

Is that what the Marines do?
If you are blaming seabag for that crime I will defer to him, as I am not aware of him committing any such crimes. I also wouldn't think of accusing him of such a thing with no evidence of it having occurred.

Ahhh. Our government doesn't 'allow' us to own firearms, we claim it as our right. I wonder why you never did the same.

Yes, it is your government allowing you to do so.

Interesting that someone from the UK, where most citizens can't own a firearm ( unless they cross the Channel to admire their guns in France
), chooses to lecture us on the subject.

When your break free of the monarchy and write your own constitution, then maybe your words will be something more than just the air issuing from your lips.


Oh there are millions of legally owned firearms in the UK, and hundreds of gun clubs, the difference is it means nothing to us, whilst you exist in a semi-psychotic national state thinking that the guns will change your life somehow. It's like a paranoia.

Maybe you should break free of your corporate run two party quasi-dictatorship, then write your own constitution that isn't nearly entirely based on Ancient English Civil Law and the Magna Carta, which is our constitution and thousands of years older than yours. Then maybe your words will be something more than just the hot air issuing from your lips.

just like SSN's were never supposed to be used to identify people. i highly doubt the FBI would throw away that information.

Seriously, you want to buy a firearm and wonder, that they want to review your backgroundinfo? Sorry, it is a weapon! I would like to have checks on every ATF File, like in every other country.

Uhhh, might want to get up to date if you are going to question our system.

A system has been installed allowing for instant background checks done at the point of sale for firearms. There shouldn't be any review required.

yeah, thats why i stuck with "SUPPOSED" lol. at least the SSN field is optional on the 4473 i guess. and "sold them a while ago" is always an option as under no situation does anyone have a right to know what firearms are kept in your home. its usually a felony to lie to a federal agent but if they ask for your guns they are doing something illegal at the same time unless you are subject to one of the million regulations that people seem to already ignore when calling for more legislation.

i find it amusing when people call for passing laws to keep firearms out of the mentally defect or felons hands when there are already laws against it.

semi-psychotic national state

So you can own guns.
So can we.
But we are semi-psychotic and you are not.

Our democracy is totally loused up.
But your system with a Queen , in her position by the grace of high birth, is really great?

Thanks for clearing that up for us.

The queen has absolutely no power, she's just a figurehead and has been since the times of Oliver Cromwell, even her speeches are written by the Prime Minister. She's just for ceremonial duties and fleecing naive tourists out of their money.

You are just exposing your American ignorance and arrogance.

Theres nothing wrong with guns. Guns dont kill, or hurt anyone, it is the person behind, or ignorant kid behind the trigger. Any object in your house can kill you, if you really think about it, so should we outlaw household objects?

You can abuse water, and become over hydrated and die, should we ban water?

Guns are useful tools, that can effectively feed, and protect you, and your family, if used correctly and safely.

I have a Ukrainian AK-47 i bought for 450$ that i use for home protection, and if SHTF, i have a pretty reliable weapon, with a backpack full of ammo :p it has a toggle between semi auto, and breech loading for the bullets, so i guess in a situation like that, it could be used for hunting larger animals

I'm amazed. I get in and out in 15 minutes tops. Pistol, rifle doesn't matter. Hand them my CPL and License, fill it out the form while they call it in. Usually I'm finished with the form a minute before they get off the phone, finish up the rest and pay. I've waited longer to buy groceries.

This thread has me wanting to go to the range Saturday. I've been slacking on the shooting lately.

Let's face it, it's better than a two party corporate dictatorship, under the control of whatever egomaniac can spend the most money. Imagine calling yourself a dictatorship when you only have 2 possible choices.

I have a number of guns, pistols mainly, a few different types of rifles and a few shotguns. I'm trying to think of something to compare it to... I guess I'm going to go with guitars. It's not just acoustic and electric, bass or 12 string. Take a few different acoustics and you get a different feel and sound. Same with the rest, and they look different, and are fun to collect.

So lets take my 4 shotguns. One I inherited and it is loved as a family heirloom (It really is a gorgeous meld of wood and metal even if you hate guns), one is set up for hunting, one for fun at the range/home defense, and one is great at shooting clays.

If there were some perfect all around gun I'd be a happy camper. There are a ton of different types, because there are a number of different shooting requirements.

If you get a chance, try it out! Shooting is really fun.

Also, remember not all gun lovers are redneck white guys. At my gun range on any given day there is more diversity than an example I can't think of. Old, young, women, men, black, white, Asian, everyone is a friend the minute they walk in. If only the world was more like my gun club.

What I don't understand is how isn't the ATF a violation of the 2nd amendment? Any law abiding citizen in the US should be able to get a gun if they want one. No questions asked, a simple background check and that should be all. Then you have the liberals who say "then crazy people will be able to get guns" all you have to say is the Cops already have them.

If you get your carry permit back you can skip this step in the future.

With a CCW in my state you can buy any gun with no waiting period. I still have to fill out the app, but it doesn't need to be called in.

Calm down trigger man. Is it like a 24 to 48 hour hold type thing? If you have already purchased weapons. ( ???why you need more is beyond me but....) you will probably get this one too.
Sounds like a I want it NOW kind of thing so perhaps its better if you allow some time. It certainly does not sound like a thread on ATS was in order.

He wasn't trying to buy a handgun. I don't have a wait period when I buy a handgun. I think it was stated in the OP this was not his first firearm purchase from a dealer.
