    Question States' requirements on acquiring a firearm?

    Does your state have significant steps, in addition to the national government's requirements, to acquire a firearm -- long gun, handgun, other?

    If your State has not already been reported, please comment with details, including State.

    In Virginia dealing with an FFL...2 forms. The BATF 4473 and the State Police SP65. No application for a permit to buy a firearm, no denial of the type other than Class III without proper paper work, no 30 or 1 day wait, no more only one hand gun a month, and no requirements in a private sale. Hopefully private sellers will be diligent and make sure the buyer at least has a VADL. Most private sellers in VA want to see a ccw which is a good thing. FFL approvals may take 2 minutes or 8 hours. No rhyme or reason.

    Louisiana has a very significant constitutional amendment in the upcoming election that will toughen the state's constitutional protections for weapon owners and would give Louisiana the strongest gun protection in the nation. They say it could guard against possible future Supreme Court rulings that might affect the Second Amendment.

    I don't have much doubt that is will pass overwhelmingly!

    Oregon has two forms and about a 45 minute wait. That was at a gun show.
    Local gun store was about the same. No additional requirements.

    Well done. Particularity the, "2 minutes or 8 hours. No rhyme or reason."

    I deleted my less complete duplicate comment.

    Pretty much covers it.

    In Oklahoma just fill out the form and have the FFL call it in. Takes about 5 minutes.

    In Maine, we fill out the short form, they call it in , and out the door in approx. 20 minutes. No special permits required to purchase handguns, rifles or shotguns.

    Florida, not really. Just background check and 3 day waiting period for hand guns, unless you have your CCW. Then you can take home same day.

    Arkansas...a NICS check.

    If you have a CHL, then its waived.

    No stupid,worthless,unconstitutional,liberal loving requirements.

    In North Carolina you must pay a $5 bribe to the local Sheriff’s office for a pistol purchase permit unless you have a CCW.
