    Some cities requires upto 3 letters of references.

    and all this still does NOT guarantee that you will get a Class A LTC that allows you to CARRY CONCEALED outside your home or work.

    I allways kinda thought yalls liberal politicians were racist and this shows it . When you couple the amount for a permit , a reliable handgun , and the social programs ( welfare ) that keep poor ( predominantly minority folks ) in the " hood " instead of educating them into a work skill.... Its little wonder that some cannot legally defend themselves and some turn criminal in order to be able to . Not every young minority lad caught with an " illegal pistol" is a drug dealer or a gang banger, some are carrying for the same reasons you and i do , its just that doing it legally is a pipe dream for them .

    Sorry for the rant , but the whole concept of qualify to buy just chapps my redneck a..... ermmm hide .

    Squawker - When I was in California and bought guns, I never had anything but an ID card and proof of residency. Maybe since I'm military I get a freebie on that one, but I was shopping in Orange County and never saw anybody else in the store producing cards to prove that stuff. Bought two handguns in the 10 months I was there FWIW.

    I do believe Massachusetts "MAY ISSUE" LTC issuing policy is racist/sexist

    you are correct, some minorities, ( Blacks, Latinos, Asians etc. ) carry for protection illegally because they are denied a LTC by the system to legally protect themselves, so I can't blame them in a sense when they carry "illegally" guess some say , " Rather be judge by 12 than carried by 6 " . I can't blame them for taking the risk, possession chasrge over defenselessness.

    If you check the Mass map I posted, you will see that the Red ( denied areas) are predominately where Minorities have a large population.

    Ohio doesn't require a permit to purchase a handgun just the normal paper work and call.

    X2. Most reputable gun shops will require that you produce a permit prior to handling a hand gun, but Cabela's just hands them over to anyone.

    Additionally, to do a private hand gun sale in CT, you must get approval from the state after providing them with both seller's and buyer's permit numbers. The state will then give you an approval number. The seller is required to provide a copy to the buyer, his local pd, buyers local pd, and keep his copy on file for 20 years.

    No fee involved though.

    Texas....
    Walk into the store, pick out the gun you want, show your Texas DL, fill-out the paperwork, 5 to 10 minute call for a background check, (unless you have a CCL) then no background check needed. I've purchased 5 pistols in the last 2 years and the longest it's taken me is around 10 minutes. Excluding the weeks agonizing over which one to buy.

    Yes. And since I have a concealed permit with me, my store will let me purchase handguns and take them home in a single visit....3 min wait.

    'Corse my store also sold the DC sniper's weapon with no record of the sale.

    Here in Oklahoma we don't need a permit to purchase a handgun but on one occasion needing a permit to purchase a handgun helped me to stop a robbery. I was in the Air Force at Pope AFB in NC. I also worked part time at Cumberland Knife and Gun. This was during the 80's and there was not provision for CCW except in a private store or on personal property. You also needed a permit to purchase handgun and we required customers to show one before taking a hand gun out of the case. (with Fort Bragg next door there were to many window shoppers not to). I had a regular customer looking for a Custom 1911 with Packmeyer grips. He was a good guy so I took my own Lawson custom .45 out unloaded it and handed it to him with his wife standing next to him. As he finished looking at it and handed it back to me a black guy came in the front door with a bowling bag and a .410 snake charmer sticking out. As he walked up to me the regular customer handed me my own .45 back and as I asked the guy with the snake charmer what I could do for him I jacked a round in the chamber of my .45. The black guy sucked a little wind and asked how much .410 ammo was. I told him and he said never mind and turned around and left the store. He robbed Bragg Pawn just down the street a few minutes later. I didn't realize it until I read the Sunday paper and called the police after reading the description. He stole 36 handguns and was later caught in NYC selling them. He was one lucky/stupid fellow. There were 8 of us working in the shop that day and all of us were carrying. Most of us were either combat trained or competitive shooters. That single shot would not have done him much good. Of course that single shot wouldn't have done me much good either. Now I'm not advocating needing a permit to purchase. The national instant check system pretty much takes the place of what the NC system would do anyway.

    Here, with a CCW no permit. If I order a pistol from one of my dealers, transaction takes less than 10 minutes.
