No printing here. It was whatever the required federal form is, then a very brief call......

...I don't know who's waiting to answer that call at the government at 5p DC time on the Sunday before Labor Day, but for all the talk about lazy feds... seems like this is a service we might be okay doing without on weekends.

Anyhoo, the call was basically him reading off my particulars, hold please, an indeterminate lag (seconds, not minutes), then I was swiping my card and all that.

I don't feel less safe here than in MD for sure, but these laws are basically non-existent. The new governor is anti-gun for sure (I support her fwiw), but what she would have to implement to effect anything meaningful is impossible, particularly since like your state, many sheriffs have told her preemptively they won't enforce laws THEY deem unconstitutional, such as red flag laws, et al.

She took the radical step recently of closing the private sale = no FFL/no BG check loophole recently, and we were getting here as it was being implemented. Good lord, the whining from the rural areas.

Again, it's just a rural/urban split we're not going to get over, but it all comes down to the point and place where someone buys or otherwise receives a weapon, and the complexities there are legion.
