    I saw this article in American Rifleman. It talks about this article in the Post

    Here is how it starts:

    It took $833.69, a total of 15 hours 50 minutes, four trips to the Metropolitan Police Department, two background checks, a set of fingerprints, a five hour class and a 20 question multiple choice exam. Oh, and the votes of five Supreme Court justices. They're the ones who really made it possible for me, as a District resident, to own a handgun

    I thought it was a pretty tasteful article and an interesting read. It reminds me of buying guns in NJ. :texas:

    Still though. You can walk out with a gun in ten minutes in Texas.

    Therein lies the problem... But you're probably well aware of that now that you are living in a more free state.

    Our Representatives and Senators have to co-exist in a legislature with folks from MA, CT, NY, NJ, CA, MD, etc., i.e., states that really believe that it is appropriate to have a "Firearms Owners Identification Card" and to have onerous procedures and regulations concerning the purchase and ownership of firearms, AND see it as natural that we should accept their illegitimate laws and regulations.

    It took me 6 months to get my FOID in Delaware Township, Hunterdon County!!!!

    CT is actually pretty firearms friendly. No FOID and licensed OC/CC.

    I remember the first time I tried to go shoot in IL, do you have a FOID card... I was like a what, they understood my "WTF do I need that for" look, but said it was required there
