I have purchased 3 firearms in the last 6 months. The first one was put on a 5 week hold and I was patient. I was thinking it had been a few years since I purchased one so once that one went through I would be good to go. The next one was a 10 day hold So I was patient again. 2 weeks after that one I got another hold for like 3 weeks. I told the guy at the shop I had just been cleared for one 2 weeks before that...The dealer was kind enough to call OSP the next morning and ask them what the deal was and they cleared it that day while he had them on the phone. They told him that they were behind schedule and the note hadn't been attached to my file yet. I had called and left them a message asking what the hold up was and when they returned my call 2 weeks later they gave me the same story. That they were behind schedule and that I should be ready to go after they caught up. So now today I went to buy a 1911 .22 and they put a hold on it till 11-13-12! The worst thing on my record is a frickin DUII. Im entitled to the gun after 3 days according to federal law and these boneheads at OSP are making me wait a month? WTF! How can they even do that? I think as much as they whine about being understaffed and underfunded they should let the FBI handle this stuff and get their lazy butts out there and catch some poachers and dope growers. Get out from behind the computer, hang up the phone and do some police work. Quit wasting man power on something the federal government already has under control and is obviously better at. Instead of laying off troopers, lay off these pencil pushers that aren't even smart enough to communicate amongst themselves in order to allow hardworking honest Americans to buy a gun... I am so irritated right now. When is the revolution?
