Quote:NRA: Massachusetts ‘abusing’ citizens by slow-walking gun license approval

A National Rifle Association affiliate says Massachusetts is "abusing" law-abiding citizens by delaying the issuance of firearm licenses beyond the time frame outlined by state law.

The Gun Owners Action League (GOAL), which represents 16,000 members in Massachusetts and is the official state affiliate of the NRA, reports that many people applying for licenses have been experiencing long delays.

GOAL Executive Director Jim Wallace said the average time for obtaining a license is currently six months. That leaves many Massachusetts residents waiting much longer than the state law requires.

According to state law, an applicant will be notified within 40 days of either approval or denial of the license.

So will the NRA be spending any of the dollars that we give to them to attempt to obtain injunctive relief via the courts?

On rare occasions the nra actually does stuff. However, don't hold your breath. They mostly just raise money to fund their own lives and that of their family and friends.

The same goes on in NJ where a citizen can wait 6 months to a year. I've even heard of rare cases where the wait was a year and a half. Somebody with standing sued the state because the law there says the police must decide within 30 days.

The courts there sided with the police saying if they need more time to do the background check they can have as much they want. I would predict if Massachusetts is challenged the same ruling would come down.
