Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- With the current long background check delays for many gun purchasers taking days or weeks, VCDL is calling on gun dealers to release the guns to the purchaser after the 3rd business day.
**As they are allowed to do by federal law.**
If the State Police later determine the sale should have been denied, they can send an officer out to retrieve the gun from the purchaser.
When a transaction is delayed, the dealer is given the date that the gun can be released without the background check approval. It is the dealer’s choice as to whether he wants to release the gun to the purchaser on that date.
Currently, the budget is being held hostage by the Democrats in the Senate, so the current delays could continue until the budget is approved and takes full effect (in July).
