Slight embellishment perhaps, but a 10 day wait is semantics. Correct me if im wrong, but if you have a license to carry a hand gun and you have gone through the process to get that licensee can you not simply go buy one immediately?
10 minutes, or 10 days makes not difference thou. Someone wanting to plan a mass killing, or simply have a semi automatic hand gun "just in case" will wait 10 days.
Where I live if you are caught with a hand gun its jail time. Unless you are going to or coming from a firing range, and IMO i think its fcked in Canada too that we allow people to buy handguns.
That would not have prevented what happened in CT. No one saw him coming in with a gun, carrying or transporting one (presumably). He shot himself. Jail time not really a deterrent in that situation.
