Court Says Californians Need To Cool Off After Gun Buy

Cool off? What if it is someone who just threatened you is the one who needs to cool off?
Such became my situation when I was a newspaper reporter for seven years during the 70s mostly in Alabama.
Speaking with very recent experience, today I can go into any Birmingham area gun store, pick out a gun and wait for just under an hour of the seller to check me out on the phone.
Back around 1974, I had to wait about two weeks even after I paid for my first handgun in Tuscaloosa.
First I was receiving death threats on the phone before *69 was introduced so you could find out who just called you.
Next I'm cornered in a laundromat when two dudes exit a restaurant and head toward me across a street. I recognized one as someone I recently wrote about going to jail.
The other dude chickened out. Shaking his head, he went back into the restaurant. The one charged with a crime tossed up his hands and followed the other guy.
So I decided to buy a gun I could conceal on my person. Several very anxious and jumpy days passed before I was carrying serious enough self defense protection instead of a stupid knife.
Now it is 2017 and a threatened Californian has to wait ten days for someone really mad at them to cool off.
I suppose a lib judge can't imagine that the someone who needs to cool off may not be the gun buyer.
