    hi, welcome.

    Why do you have to wait to bring them home ? Don't they do a backround check at the gun store ? i'm curious as to how the town justifies that, it sounds way too long. You must be jonesing to get your guns...

    Congratulations, and welcome to Defensive Carry. Be sure to ask if you have any questions. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people, who can offer a lot of information. Remember, the only bad question is one that is not asked. And, as you develop your own knowledge base, it won't be too long until you will be offering advise.

    In michigan when you don't have your CPI yet you get right to purchase permit at your local police department then you take it to the gun store to be filled out and then back to the police. My city has decided that there going to make you wait three weeks or longer before the will allow you to bring them home.

    That doesn't sound quite right.

    I'm in Lansing and anyone can go to a local LEO office and obtain a purchase permit, buy the gun and take it home same-day. There is no "safety inspection" anymore so you should not have to go back to your police station. The forms can just be mailed back - I would suggest Certified Mail.

    Perhaps some of our more legal-minded members can clarify this for us. I don't believe the local municipality can supercede the state laws like that.

    Welcome from Las Vegas, Nevada! Sorry you have to wait 3 weeks to pick up your guns. At times gun laws are a real pain in the butt.

    Just curious.....I get the waiting period..we have a 10 day waiting period in California, but why do the local cops have to give you a permit to purchase a gun? Don't they run a check at the gun shop?
