I am looking to buy a handgun. With our newly elected president I hear gun laws will change. How much longer do I have to be able to get one?

No way of knowing. I'd apply sooner rather than later.

Yup, he actually said that.

Yeah, we've never covered the Obama is a gun grabber issue here....

His only interest in gun control legislation is closing the trade show convention loophole. Buy away.

Dems aren't dumb enough and don't have enough support to piss away their majority by mobilizing the progun faction of America.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

As mentioned, his only real aim towards gun laws is making guns purchased at trade shows slightly more trackable. Otherwise his website even says that he is pro-owning guns.

Because unless we talk to Obama ourselves, all we can do is research what other people "heard"

Obama can't to anything about the gun laws for the moment. The Supreme Court said that the right to keep and bear arms is just that, a right. He also knows that if he passes any gun control legislation, his chances of being reelected in 4 years become narrower. Gun control was not an issue in this campaign (as it was in the past) because neither Obama McCain were particularly friendly to gun owner's rights.

The most he can do is to appoint liberal justices to the Supreme Court (how can they be "liberal" when they try to take away a right?), and even if he does, it's very unlikely that they'll reverse the Court's earlier decision.

As for the gun show "loophole", it's not a loophole at all. Citizens who legally own firearms are allowed to sell them to others without government infringement. If the buyer is not legally able to buy a gun, it is he who is committing a crime, not the seller.

That sounds like a loophole to me.

If you can go to a gunshow and buy a gun when it is illegal for you to do  so, without the same regulations as a gun store how is it not a loophole?

Holy bad grammar batman^

Id be more worried about buying ammo not guns... he cant take away your guns... but he could jack up the taxes on ammo.

and the P99s are very nice guns, we owned a PPKS chambered for .380 and it was an amazing little gun. I wish we handnt traded it for the .38 revolver, atleast its a double action.

The buyer still has to undergo and pass a background check.

I thought they didn't, therefore nothing wrong with buying guns at a gun show.

I actually go to gun shows, and buy guns.

New gun, you do the background check, and the gun is registered. I bought a smith and wesson 9mm conceal carry gun this spring. Got it in less than 15 minutes at a gun show.

Used gun, pay cash, walk away. I also bought a used 20 guage shotgun at the same show. Handed over the $120. and walked away.

That is in Ohio.

I prefer no paper trail. When the government knows you have guns, they have proven that they will come take them...

I live in NY and it has been some time since I purchased a rifle at a gun show, so things may have changed.
this is how it use to work, dealers have FFL's and cell phones on their person, you fill out the proper forms to purchase a rifle, he calls usually the county PD HQ, who runs your driver lic # and SS # to see if you have any legal issues past or present that would deny you the purchase. this can take any where between 1 min to several hours. that would be dependant on computer traffic and purchase traffic, I believe your information gets crossed reference with the state and county police and FBI. If everything comes back good, you pay for it and walk out. Hand guns are a different story all together here and requires you going with the purchase documents to PD HQ to the pistol lic. bureau, present the reciept, pay te PD Lic bureau there cut ($5 for each handgun) and they put it on your lic. and give you the clearance document, you go back to the dealer, give him his copies, you keep your copies and you now completed your purchase of a hand gun.  If You have a pistol lic. and want to purchase a rifle in Suffolk county/NY state, all you need to do is present it and purchase is approved after you fill out the paper work.  whew!
