Police Background Checks Delay Maryland Gun Purchases Creating Massive Backlog

Maryland gun stores dealing with massive backlogMaryland State police are dealing with a massive backlog as they try to process thousands of background checks on people waiting to buy handguns. For some, the wait right now to get a handgun is more than 100 days. The police are required by Maryland law to conduct an extensive background check for every handgun application.

“It’s a challenge. It’s one that we are working around the clock, literally, to address,” said Greg Shipley, Maryland State Police.

So far this year–more than 72,000 firearms applications. This year on average, 2,300 new applications come in each week–triple the number of applications they were handling each week in 2010.

The law allows police up to seven days to do the background checks. After that, stores can legally give those guns to customers. But state police have asked stores not to do that.

Some stores, like Pasadena Pawn & Gun are complying, but reluctantly. “Customers are very upset, calling and complaining all the time. My hands are tied. There’s nothing I can do,” said owner Frank Loane.

And while the stores wait for state police to finish those background checks, many of them end up holding onto the guns their customers want to buy. Entire offices are full of rifles waiting to go to their owners. And in other rooms, entire walls are filled with handguns the store has been hanging onto. Some of these have been sitting here for more than 100 days.

    Illuminati’s secretive, globalist organized crime syndicate who
    secretly call themselves “Us” and “Satan worshippers” heavily infiltrate
    and use governments, media, education, religions and all organizations
    to further their New World Order totalitarian military, police-state
    dictatorship. America’s government, congress, the entire presidential
    administration, the supreme court, and the 3 branches of government at
    every level are heavily infiltrated by the secret servants of Satan, the
    globalist organized crime syndicate. The Satanists have tremendous
    stolen technology like mind control rays, mind control drugs, mind
    control devices and anti-memory rays and computer technology that they
    use to gain great power and control over the masses of
    the people. They have biological weapons such as parasites, bacteria,
    viruses, poisons which they use to murder and make the murder look like
    “natural causes”. They are also very adept at “accidents” and

    This is a great 55 minute video by Max Igan. What is the link to this video so that I can share it with others?

    enhance your power against evil, spread the word that Krishna is the
    Divine Father (as Jesus is the Son). Krishna.com When all the
    religious people realize that we all all praying to ONE GOD with
    different names, there will be a HUGE AWAKENING and unification of all
    the sons and daughters of God on planet earth. There is great strength
    in ONENESS.

    I see that the Violet Flame is pictured throughout
    the video. Information about the Violet Flame of Purification and
    Freedom can be obtained through
    tsl.org—SaintGermainPress.com—EraOfPeace.org and other Ascended
    Masters’ websites.

    When he says “I really believe that the days
    of this system are numbered”, he is right. As of 12/21/2012 the planet
    earth moved into the Satya Yuga and the end of the Kali Yuga (the age of
    quarrels and hypocrisy). God is now turning the tables on the EVIL
    ONES, the controllers, manipulators and exploiters.

    I really like
    his definition of crime at minute 50:38. When the wicked rule, the
    people suffer, mourn and are persecuted and enslaved.

    them as much as possible – build upon them – and continue to chip away
    at the beast that is federal power until they’re rendered toothless. –Michael Boldin

    The Great State of Maryland should take ownership of all the guns on hold until the necessary paperwork and checks are completed (no matter How Long it may be) put them into storage and then once everything is completed when a person goes to pick up their firearm they should be charged with storage fees! Great way to fill the state coffers and create jobs!

    • MD hunter

      In that case, the next time you have your vehicle repaired and it has to stay overnight, the dealer should charge you storage fees. I bet you would cry the blues then. The “Great State of Maryland” should stand up to the laws they created and find a way the firearm can be released after the 7th day into the hands of someone who is allowed to own it. I am sure you very educated in something but you definitely lack common sense with that idea of creating jobs
