    Received this email at 9 this morning... and just like that, all gun sales could be stopped.

    Once any of those Universal BG Check laws get on the books it would be as simple as throwing a switch and the legal transfer of firearms would effectively cease to exist. This is just one of the many reasons why we must continue to oppose any new infringements of our 2A protected rights.

    I have never understood why those who hold a CHL should have to undergo a back ground check every time they buy a gun. Probably just a fund raiser for the state.

    I thought CHL were exempt from NICS, but they still had to fill out a 4473 which gets called in to the state police. For the last pistol I purchased the clerk had me approved on the computer before I finished filling out the 4473.

    That ain't the only thing they can control with the flip of a switch. Pretty much all communications.

    Nope, in that time they ran the NICS background check and you were approved. In some other states, you don't have to do the background check with a CHL. But in Oregon, the CHL does not exempt you from the NICS check. Their reasoning behind this is because you may have done something that would prevent you from owning a firearm between the time you got your CHL and buying the firearm.

    Same in WA, the only thing a CPL does is let you take your purchase home the same day instead of the required cooling off period.

    I think the whole thing is plainly stupid. After undergoing a single background check you should be exempt from further checks for life. What's to keep a person from shooting someone with the gun he already has ? So what if he owns one or fifty. A " cooling off period " is moot if you already have one.
