Most every time democrats start flapping their faces about 'gun control' background checks go up.

I’ve had a application for a pistol permit in the govt for just about a week. So far it has gone through my two references and a criminal history background check. Shone about another two weeks before my 90 day purchase window is open. I love NJ! I won a auction on Gun Broker for a Ruger .22 Mark 2 for $250. I’ll post pics.

Why do you need your DD214? NICS covers that if you were reported/recorded by the military. And it is a felony to lie on a DD214.

Then new Sheriff here where I live added that the/your DD214 must be brought in to apply for a CCW. I have had mine (CCW) for 15 years and no problems. So I spoke to the Sheriffs attorney and told him that I would sue as there was other info on MY DD214 that they didn't need and was covered by NICS. Honorably Discharged and if you lie,it is a felony. Gave him my attorneys name and said to call him. He didn't and renewed my permit.

I've talked to Senators about this and have had no satisfaction on it as to why anyone would have to produce their DD214 and how to do a check on/with NICS and not know that answer.

Here a CCW is a pistol permit and can buy all you want. You have to understand that more than one at any place at the same time will be reported to the BATFE. So one a day at more than one store and you can spend all the money you want.

So I absolutely had no idea that NICS would have any record of Military Service. I'll have to ask about that today.

Maybe it's a requirement by Glock itself?

I think you just need it to get a veterans discount if i'm reading it right, not to buy it.

Once MANDATORY background checks on PRIVATE sales took effect in many states recently, the number of total background checks has been increased.
In fact, if we extract private sales, then the number of background checks for new firearms might be as same as average, but the number of the private sales could be decreased, because many people now refuse to sell their guns due to private-transfer-through-the-FFL-only PITA.

I would say yes but I would NOT let them touch it or photo copy it.
No ONE needs the other info on it to buy or get anything as a Veteran

I got my starred Id DL but not with the Veterans stamp because they wanted to photo copy it and KEEP a copy. NOT!!!!! going to happen. No one has touched my DD214 since 1974 but me.

The store vehemently claims there's a mechanical difference in the firearm itself. From my reading though I seriously doubt it.


Also, +1 background check for September.
The store is full of feces. There is absolutely no difference between a 'Blue Label' Glock and any other same model Glock. Depending on the state where purchased, there may be a difference in magazine capacity. Depending on the selling FFL, there may be a difference in included magazines. Oh yeah, the label on the box is blue instead of white.

Blue Label Glocks are available to participating retailers at a reduced cost. The inclusion of veterans to the authorized purchaser list is a new, and a limited, part of the program.

Gun Sales Surge After Democrats Demand Buybacks & Confiscation

Tyler Durden
authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com
09/11/2019


August gun sales were up 15% thanks to Democrats’ totalitarian demands for mandatory buybacks. Those who bought guns were Americans seeking self-protection and with deep concerns that President Donald Trump is on board with gun control.

According to the Washington Examiner,
the overall number of background checks recorded in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System surged 15.5%. Those numbers were courtesy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). That figure includes background checks done for security, concealed carry permits, and gun sales and was the highest August number ever recorded.

Adjusted for sales, the NSSF industry group said that August FBI background checks for sales surged 15.2% over August 2018. The adjusted August number was second only to August 2016 during the heated presidential election. It’s become evident that gun control authoritarians are the best gun salespeople on the planet.

Trump’s rhetoric on guns and his apparent desire to curb the gun rights of innocent people is likely also playing a role in the increase in gun sales. The new surge came in the wake of heightened pressure for gun control, sales bans on “military-style rifles,” limits on ammo, and a slew of democrats saying they will take guns at the end of a gun, but force.

Justin Anderson, the marketing director for Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the nation’s largest sellers, said fears of a liberal gun grab and a drive for self-protection are pushing sales higher.

“As we’ve seen in the past, the recent publicizing of mass shootings has fueled people’s concerns about their personal safety. We are seeing many first-time gun buyers, and our concealed carry classes are booking up quickly,” said Anderson.

“Political figures talking about gun bans and confiscation is also starting to figure into sales. We’ve seen a slight uptick in the sale of tactical rifles as a result,” he added. —Washington Examiner

Democrats continue to prove themselves to be the best people to drive up gun sales. They are literally making their goal of an enslaved populace harder by spewing propaganda seconds after a mass shooting. It looks like innocent people don’t like being told they aren’t allowed to protect themselves and considering the second amendment was written to protect Americans from tyrants, it makes sense that democrats want it gone, while free people stock up.

Have a legit need to do so, but fell through a "legal catch 22" lack of permanent address. I pass in every other respect and have passed in full when I had a permanent address.

My not having a permanent address does not mean I don't have the means to safely secure a firearm when not in use. Not everyone without a permanent address is a crackpot etc. Sometimes there are situations outside that persons control like societal discrimination, economical downturns, but with some income, just not enough for brick and mortar housing. But we as do you have the same right to defend ourselves. If not more so since we are also unfortunate to be closer to elements that are more prone to violence.

But what if mods were done by the in-business gun smith to have those mechanical differences that improve it over the factory specs? They could advertise them as blue label then right?? Because they at that point are above factory specs and thus better than factory default?

Your 'what if' scenario advertises your ignorance.

In-store gunsmiths are usually rushed and, therefore, often do sloppy work. If I were forced to purchase a firearm 'modified' by such a smith, I'd detail strip and thoroughly inspect the entire firearm, with emphasis on the 'mods', before purchase.

I'd imagine GLOCK would have major problems with internal modifications done by a retailer and immediately void any warranties AND the retailer's participation in the Blue Label program. Lawsuits may be filed against the retailer since they are advertising and selling something other than a Glock as a Glock.

As an aside: Glock Certified Armorers are the only people Glock authorizes to work on their pistols. Glock Certified Armorers are, basically, glorified parts changers. I've completed the Glock Armorer's Course and am a Glock Certified Armorer. I know of what I speak.

You've got that right. I took a 1911 to a local gunsmith to install a ambidextrous thumb safety. When I got it back, it had the new safety piece on the right-side and the old one on the left side. I haven't taken it apart to figure out how he managed that but it was the most crap job, visually, I could have imagined. He gave me the new left-side piece in a zip-lock bag when I picked my gun up. He told me that this was the first time he'd done it that way. I don't know what he does normally.

He's always got a lot of people in and out and a lot of guns he's working on so maybe others have better experience but 100% of my experience with him was pure crap work. I certainly won't be back for gunsmithing work. I could have, should have, done better myself.
