    How many have to get a permit to BUY a gun?

    This article got me thinking so I did a little research on NE law:
    http://www.ketv.com/news/14880200/detail.html

    Paying particular attention to the bolded sections.
    OMAHA, Neb. -- Applications for permits to buy handguns have more than doubled in Douglas County since the Westroads Mall shootings.

    More than 100 applications have gone through the sheriff's office since the shootings.

    After the nine deaths at Von Maur, people spoke repeatedly of the shock, fear and helplessness that they felt. The sentiment appeared in KETV.com's forum about the shootings." One poster wrote on Dec. 8: "I went out shopping yesterday for the first time since this happened. I visited four stores and I have to say it was a very daunting task. I was so nervous."

    Some residents may be responding to their fear, filling out handgun permits and signing up for target practice.

    "What we're seeing now is people wanting to defend themselves, be able to defend themselves," said Douglas County Chief Deputy Marty Bilek.

    Bilek said his department issued 43 certifications in the week before the shootings -- in the week following, they issued 105.

    "This is the largest spike we've ever seen," Bilek said.

    Interest in concealed-carry permits is also up, though not as much, Douglas County reported.

    The National Safety Council Omaha Chapter said it had canceled several training courses the last few months, but not in December.

    "People are always concerned. They're just sad that it happened in Omaha, and I think they always want to know what they can do to help," said National Safety Council Omaha Chapter President Kay Farrell.

    Some law enforcement officers said they are concerned, noting that people should have the right to own handguns, but those people also need to understand the risks and liabilities involved.

    Bilek said that's why deputies heavily screen those who want a permit.

    "For people who have sound judgment, and for people who have the proper training," Bilek said.

    While permits to buy handguns may be up in Douglas County, they're not necessarily up elsewhere. Sarpy County, for example, said it has seen a small increase in permits issued, but they said it always goes up during the holidays because some people want to buy guns as gifts.
    So....what they're saying is that you folks in NE have to go to the sheriff and purchase a permit and do training just to PURCHASE a firearm? ***? Are we to rename NE to Nebraskastan?

    http://uniweb.legislature.ne.gov/Leg...ge=s6924004000

    Section 69-2404
    Certificate; application; fee.

    Any person desiring to purchase, lease, rent, or receive transfer of a handgun shall apply with the chief of police or sheriff of the applicant's place of residence for a certificate. The application may be made in person or by mail. The application form and certificate shall be made on forms approved by the Superintendent of Law Enforcement and Public Safety. The application shall include the applicant's full name, social security number, address, date of birth, and country of citizenship. If the applicant is not a United States citizen, the application shall include the applicant's place of birth and his or her alien or admission number. If the application is made in person, the applicant shall also present a current Nebraska motor vehicle operator's license, state identification card, or military identification card, or if the application is made by mail, the application form shall describe the license or card used for identification and be notarized by a notary public who has verified the identification of the applicant through such a license or card. An applicant shall receive a certificate if he or she is twenty-one years of age or older and is not prohibited from purchasing or possessing a handgun by 18 U.S.C. 922. A fee of five dollars shall be charged for each application for a certificate to cover the cost of a criminal history record check.

    It's not an issue in TN. The state does require a $10 background check by the TBI which usually only takes a few minutes and you can take your new firearm home.

    In New York State your not even supposed to handle a pistol until you have a permit. $150 and 6 to 12 months later you can get one.

    In Massachusetts you need a FID or LTC to purchase ANY GUNS
    including Private Sales

    Cost
    NRA training certificate $90 to $150
    Club Membership $200 to $250 year ( REQUIRED in some Cities in MA including Boston )
    FEE To State for License $100
    Letters of references = upto 3 required
    Total $390 to $500 + LETTERS
    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.

    In MN to buy a handgun you need a permit to purchase which is free from your local police department. It takes up to 10 days to do a background check. Or you need a permit to carry.

    In Arizona you don't need a permit just to purchase. If you have a current concealed carry permit, that counts for the instant background check.

    You don't have to do anything for a private sale, although I wouldn't sell a gun to someone I didn't know.

    I second that. We're still a private sale state. Although, at the rate Kaine is going that might not hold out long.

    We used to have PTAs (permit to acquire) in Missouri. Fortunately we got rid of that law just this past summer. In fact just 2 weeks ago I bought my first non PTA handgun. It was very liberating.

    Nope, not in Texas, you just go into the store pick out what you want, fill out the form 4473, they call for the background check, (unless you have a CHL, then no call for the check), you give them the money. Done deal. No asking the sherriff, or filling out some state form, or waiting for however many days, or any crap like that.

    Most stores won't let you walk out with the gun and ammo, they walk it to the front door then hand it over, BUT, from what I have found, if you have your CHL, they give you both the ammo and the gun at the gun counter, and you get to meander around the store with a new gun and box of ammo in your hands.

    I am beginning to love my state more and more, the longer I am on this forum. Thanks Bumper for allowing us the forum, and the ability to see what we have and others don't.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    when I lived in Michigan I had to get a purchase permit before buying a handgun. If i would of had a CCW I would have been allowed to buy a handgun without a purchase permit. even then you still have to go back to register it. ohh wait "saftey inspected"

    Now living in Indiana its great, walk in pay the money fill out the forms and depending on how much jaw jacking you do your out in 20/30 minutes.
