VCDL to VA Gun Dealers – Release Guns If No Background Check After 3rd Business Day

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).

Am former Federal Agent for Dept of Treasury… yet when trying to buy a Henry 22 Caliber Magnum pea shooter . The Gun dealer at a Gun show had me waiting 1.5 Hours for a gun check? WTF is wrong with Va? I have no criminal record, judicial record and yet they say they have to do a Virginia check & the Federal check doesn't count.. their should be some kind of bypass for former law enforcement. This is RIDICULOUS..
