A Right Delayed Is A Right Denied (I-594)

I-594, if passed, would double the current 5 day waiting period to 10 working days (2 weeks).

So, you pass the NICS background check in 5 minutes (often quicker); I-594 mandates the Sheriff give his personal blessing in writing within 30 days (after browsing your personal mental health records). When the CLEO responds 30 days later, you now have to wait 2 additional weeks. A SIX WEEK WAIT BEFORE EXERCISING YOUR CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED CIVIL RIGHT.

Who would support that if it were one of the other Civil Rights?

If I-594 passes, it's only a small step further for requiring the CLEO blessing to buy long guns. Another small step gets to complete registration.
Not disagreeing with you but I think 594 is a full step into CLEO blessing requirements and complete registration.

The wording on 594 requiring police sign-off on purchases (it is purchases, if I remember correctly) would create a boondoggle beyond the imagination.

Most of the people who might vote for this thing really have no idea of the negative impact it'd make in the ability of police to do their normal jobs, even assuming the Chiefs and Sheriffs would even try to comply.

Seems like the thing may trigger a petition campaign and then special election to repeal it, if it came down to it.

Is there a way to look up how many NICS checks are processed per day in Washington or even Seattle? Wouldn't that be the same number of applications the CLEO would have to run per day?
