"in Georgia, it's easier to buy a gun than it is to vote."

Accused Atlanta-area spas shooter Robert Aaron Long reportedly had no trouble buying a gun at a firearms dealership in Cherokee County on the day of the attacks — thanks to Georgia’s no-wait gun laws.

The Peach State does not require a waiting period for firearm sales, which means a person may purchase one from a federally licensed gun seller immediately if they pass a background check.

2. Sadly, only about 10 states have waiting periods. But, even Florida does for pistols.

This shooting is a good example where waiting periods might have helped.

3. In West Virginia

it took me four trips to the DMV to change my vehicle license plate form PA to WV. It took me thirty minutes to buy a Glock at a local gun store.
