Wisconsin Cans Waiting Period

posted on June 11, 2015

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has said he will sign a law that eliminates a 1976 provision in the state code mandating a 48-hour waiting period for handgun purchases. Although 10 states and the District of Columbia still have similar provisions, such delays are under deserved scrutiny: There is far more evidence they get people hurt than that they allow the supposed “cooling off.”

After the law takes effect, NICS-approved buyers will be able to take possession of firearms when they purchase them. A good governor, that Walker guy.
