    DELAYED OR DENIED FOR A FIREARM'S PURCHASE? - Oregon Firearms Federation

    Is it legal for you to purchase or possess a firearm?

    If it is, write to the Oregon Senate Judiciary Committee and your State Senator and House Representative with your story. You will find many current threads here with their addresses and ways to contact them. The above link has some good options as well.

    Where did you purchase from? Some businesses actually follow the law and allow the firearm to be released after the 3 business day period has elapsed on a hold, which is allowed by law. That's why I like the Clackamas Gun Broker because they do follow that. In fact they tell you as much when you are delayed (as I was one time out of many gun purchases).

    I was delayed for 51 weeks. For some reason the OSP couldn't get records from the state where I grew up, I least that's what they said initially. Every time I called, I got a different reason. After about the 4 or 5 call each with a different BS excuse, I gave up. Then out of nowhere Keith's called and said I was finally approved. It was a happy day for me.

    Oh man that sucks 51 weeks?!
    Shoot, file to get an NFA item.. It seems like with an NFA item in your name "wait times" or "delays" never happen.

    I kinda of now like the idea of being off the grid and not on a registry somewhere because of a purchase I made.

    If you haven't done so, tell your representative and the entire Senate Judiciary committee.

    Fair enough.
    However, if you own a smart phone or even an account on any social networking site.. Its already too late.
    And lord help'ya if you like any firearm related stuff on said social network site.

    I purchase ammo online, thus they already had me.
    That and my draco was begging to be SBRd.

    It does help with my other FFL purchases though.

    It's a good possibility that he paid for it before they did the background check.

    I dont know what it's taking so long I've been arrested for disorderly conduct but that has been taken care of and does not disqualify me. I feel like I'm being violated due to process

    The town I live in is small and has 3 shops none will sell to me after 3 days I feel like they might not be so willing to based on my ethnicity I'm black but not good in any way it's not right for me to be judged so easily but it happens :(

    Well that ain't right! Have you thought about getting a concealed carry permit? It won't make up for bigotry but it might help avoid being hassled and delayed. If those shops are treating you like that then you should go elsewhere or order online. Sorry to hear about that.

    I would suspect that your previous arrest is the issue for you not receiving your hand gun yet. You may have been arrested for disorderly conduct but what was the final conviction? Certain misdemeanors will prohibit you from buying a gun in Oregon. Are you absolutely sure it was "taken care of"?

    For example, any of these convictions will throw a flag in the system:

    You Must Not Have Been Convicted or Found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity During
    the Previous Four Years for the Following Misdemeanors:

    Assault 4th Degree
    Menacing
    Recklessly Endangering

    Strangulation
    Intimidation 2nd Degree

    If it's on your record, from a post here in 2012, it can cause issues with you purchasing a gun. The quote and link to that thread are here:

    The two are independent of each other, you still have to deal with the background check if you have a CHL. The background check is State and the CHL is county. You'd think they would see it and it may clear up some confusion and in some cases it might, but you can find instances here where legal CHL holders were delayed. He needs to contact OSP and find out why, then post here as I am wondering.

    Have you called Patricia with OFF? If not, you should give it a shot. To request information about a delay or denial call Patricia Whitfield 503 934 2305. We cannot guarantee you will get an answer. If you want more information on challenging a denial, down load this letter from the Oregon State Police. Attached at the end is an explanation of how you can challenge a denial.

    Then go read here if you haven't already: DELAYED OR DENIED FOR A FIREARM'S PURCHASE? - Oregon Firearms Federation

    This happened to me yesterday, and I am livid!

    I am an honorably discharged veteran, no record of drugs, mental illness, or domestic violence. Worst thing on my record are traffic violations, all paid, and none recent. Just four days ago I renewed my Oregon CHL, which required a background check, and did not have any issues. My last firearms background check was approximately six months ago, again, with no problems. I'm a life-long Oregon resident, only having resided in California and North Carolina while in the Marine Corps.
    Oregon State Police did not give a reason for the delay (until March 19th!), and my calls to their website's number have gone unanswered.

    What part of "....shall not be infringed" do they not understand!?!?
