purchase a gun?
« on: March 30, 2009, 09:33 AM NHFT »

OK people,  i was diagnosed w/anxiety after 911.  and i had 2 home invasions.  1 in Hawaii.  and 1 in NJ.  nobody got hurt too bad.  the crooks did 4-7 yrs in prison.  yes I caught them.  We fought it out.  I almost got my ass kicked good.  There were 4 guys the first time.  And there were 2 guys the second time.  The cops arrived in time.  I would have been overpowered if not.  But now?  I wish I had a gun.  I surly would have used it.  So.....  Now I have a little bit of a anxiety problem.  Wonder why?  Am i allowed to purchase a gun?  It doesn't have to be a fancy 9mm or a dirty Harry gun.  just one that does the job.  And is reliable, like a revolver.  or a lever action rifle?  I'm talking about moving to NH and purchasing one there.  Does anybody know if I'm wasting my time.  Shining a flashlight in there drug crazed eyes just pisses them off.  They need to see a muzzle flash to calm them down.

Sort of a strange question to ask on your first visit here, but I'll have a go at it.

In most of these united States, you can legally purchase a gun from another gun owner by agreeing on a price, forking over cash, and receiving the gun. End of transaction. To get one from a Federal Firearms License holder (FFL) is also very easy, though your name ends up on his list of sales that can be looked at by the BATFE. You agree on a price, give him your driving license, or other government-approved identification, take a minute to make some check marks on the yellow sheet and to sign it, wait for him to call in the background check, fork over your cash, and walk out with your gun.

Buying ammo is easier, in most states. Go into Wally World or your local gun shop, pick the ammo you want, lay down cash, and walk out.

Some states are different. In Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois, you need to have a Firearms Owners ID to buy from an FFL. In New York you need a permit to possess a handgun. But not in New Hampshire. Legal to buy, legal to carry openly, without any license or permit, and an easy-to-obtain permit required to carry concealed.

Some states and localities have other restrictions, on purchase, possession, and carry. Check with a local gun shop owner for details.

I don't think being diagnosed with anxiety would be a disqualifier.

the only disqualifier for mental health issues is if you were put in a rubber room against your will.

NH is one of the most Pro 2a states in the Northeast.

Once you are here with proof of residency, usually a NH drivers license you can go to any one of the many gun shops and take your pick, or you can buy face to face from a person who knows you.

Pistol permits for CCW are MUST issue in NH, I suggest you get one.

Without the CCW if you should get caught with a loaded gun in your car it can be a hassle.

For home defense I would suggest a Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870, 18" barrel, +2 tube extender loaded with 00 buck.

If 100% percent of the people were "evaluated", the vast majority would be diagnosed with some sort of mental disorder. Pay no attention to the men in white coats, they're just pharmaceutical sales men posing as health care professionals.

Can you buy a gun with a (nonviolent) misdemeanor charge?

Yes, unless it's "domestic violence" (which doesn't have to be violent).

I don't recall if it was a state law in MA, but if you had any jail term > 1 yr it prohibited you.  I think it may have been a state thing there.  Some drug charges could also invalidate your Right.

That's Federal.  Any crime that can be punished by a term of more than one year is a felony, and makes it generally illegal to possess a firearm.

Note that they're referring to the maximum term for the given crime, even if you were given a suspended sentence and never set foot in a prison.  It's not uncommon for someone to decide to buy their first gun, later in life, only to find out that some charge they plead guilty to, decades earlier, for which they served little or no time, disqualifies them.  Which just goes to show that you should never, ever, under any circumstances take anything that a judge or prosecutor tells you at face value...

Might it be possible that the MA law triggers (no pun intended) if you're given 18 months as two consecutive sentences for misdemeanor charges? I've seen cases where the prosecutor charges a person with two counts of the same crime to be sure they can't have a record expunged later. It's possible MA has an additional back door to disarm people.

Yeah Mass does have a back door. Economics, the required permits there are $100 a year renewable every year. A carry concealed permit in NH is $40 for a four year period.

I doubt it.  Mass just has discretionary licensing, so the authorities can deny the license for any reason (or no reason).

Neither of those numbers is correct.  NH licenses are $10 for four years ($20 for non-residents).  Mass has a number of different fees, which do not add up to $100 per year for residents.

Muskets aren't considered firearms right?
You could get a musket.


Or a sword.

This one is nice, if a bit unwieldy.
