On April 29th 2016 I went to the pawn show to do a ffl transfer per the law and receive a background check. I then went back on May 6th after not hearing back from them. The gentalman informed me that the check had not came back yet. Odd? So to help myself feel better I purchased a rifle that same day and passed the background check, and head home with my new rifle. So I waited another week still no call from them, so I went in to the pawn shop today, may 13th, to pick up my firearm. Being the 10 bruisesness days had elapsed. Why ten day do you say because of rcw 9.41.092 Washington state code states that after ten day if no denial has been issued by the state then I can legally receive the firearm. They told me that it is their policy to not give a gun to anyone until the back ground check has came back with an ok. Which is contrary to what the law states. Can an ffl alter the rcw codes at their leisure? Or do they have to abide by the laws that are astablished? Now for the other side of the story. The gentalman at the counter call the sheriffs department to see as to why the bgc haven't came back yet. The officer said that they had not received the request from them. I then question the gentalman if he had sent the request for the bgc he said he did. So how long can this go on? The law says max 10 days. But if the sheriff denies receiving the request but we can show that it was sent, what do I do. Do I go after the state or the pawn shop?
