There’s no room for procrastination if you’re shopping for guns this holiday season. Just Guns owner Josh Deaser says California buyers have a 10-day waiting period before they can take a gun home.
More gun sales than ever are slipping through the federal background check system — 186,000 last year, a rate of 512 gun sales a day, as states fail to consistently provide thorough, real-time updates on criminal and mental histories to the FBI.
Under pressure from gun control advocates, Facebook agreed Wednesday to delete posts from users selling illegal guns or offering weapons for sale without background checks.
Reports from across the country indicate that gun sales have jumped in the wake of the Arizona shooting that killed six and critically wounded a Congressional representative, an incident that has prompted calls from a prominent California politician to restrict gun ownership.
