    Washington’s ‘rush’ on guns bogs down Dept. of Licensing

    As yesterday’s Washington Times was reporting that “black Friday” gun sales were the sixth highest in history, on the heels of another report that National Instant Background Checks (NICS) had declined more than 14 percent from November 2012, the Washington Department of Licensing told this column that it is months behind on logging handgun transfers into the state’s pistol registry.

    Instead of giving them 400k of our tax money, we should just scrap the whole program. I have a few major issues with the state of Washington, the pistol registry is one of them.

    We will see that happen once hell freezes over, we all know how much government likes to give up power once it gets it.

    " But we need this data to solve crimes, for the children "


    Maybe thats what we do, hit the DOLs funding, and buy more pistols.

    Well, glad to have helped bog them down with my purchase of an M92 AK "pistol" a couple weeks back.

    Now to just get the state of WA to allow me to turn it into a rifle without adding six inches of useless steel to the end of the barrel. The ban on SBR/SBS in WA is 100% BS, and from what I understand was enacted illegally as part of a failed state AWB.. But that is another topic.

    The IBGC is flawed.
    The right to purchase and transfer arms should be available any time of day on any given day.. This "system" is a guise in which the limitation of availability of firearms is a reality ultimately leading to when, where and how you purchase a firearm.

    Certain days, weeks, months.. Perhaps the overall amount of firearms, the types.. These are all things I guarantee they'll start mandating and tracking. All they need is one more tragedy.

    Push for and support the private sales of private property!
    If its yours and you choose to or prefer to sell it without a middle man, do it.

    Wish I had the cash right now to contribute to the backlog. I agree that we should just get rid of the pistol registry. I didn't even realize we had one for years after I moved up here.
