You CANNOT travel to another state and legally purchase a regulated firearm in person, it MUST be shipped to a FFL in your home state.
You CAN purchase a non-regulated firearm in another state, but not a regulated firearm.
Please post where you are getting such bad information that continues to make you look even less intelligent than usually.
Some of us actually hold FFLs and know the laws.
RE: "could end badly for all of us."
More laws, more restrictions may not make us any safer, but it will hardly impact the majority of Americans in a negative way (relative to the current status quo).
Or are you threatening some armed insurrection? That might be the response I would expect from the gun crazed, machismo right wing.
"If a legal gun dealer in a neighboring state has a handgun that I would like to legally purchase, it must be first transferred to another FFL dealer in my state of MD - who conducts a background check. A waiting period also applies."
It's apparent that that was the real meaning of that post.
You simply stated "Not true" which unless you quallify what is "Not true", you are just playing childish word games.
If you want to claim that private gun sales are not subject to background checks, okay.
Then please tell us how a "universal" background check will be enforced and at what cost since it will have no effect on criminals and will not prevent another mass killing.
No threats from me. I'm just aware of what some other states are doing in response to an overreaching federal government.
I've posted the link about the seven or more states that have passed or have introduced legislation that they will not be subject to federal gun laws. And New Hamshire has taken it even further saying any one trying to enforce federal gun, ammo, etc. laws in New Hampshire will be committing a felony.
What's Obama going to do? That's my concern. When there is wide spread disobedience to stricter gun laws will Obama declare a national emergency and martial law? That's the bad ending I'm referring to.
The really crazed and irrational people are the anti-assault-weapon and universal background check types since they can't understand that the laws they want will not stop criminals from getting guns nor will it prevent another mass killing.
You should stop with the "right wing" canard. There are many Democrat elected representatives that will not support any more anti-gun-nutter legislation because they know it will cost them at the next election.
They still remember the price that was paid for the last AWB.
And just think a few short months ago there were many posters to this forum and indeed throughout the blogosphere and media who would have only accepted DNA testing in order to cast a vote during the general election.

Some people think that passing laws is the way to achieve a "Utopia".
What purpose is served by making law abiding citizens submit to background checks and registration?
It is absolutely no deterrent to criminals, will not stop criminals from getting guns, and it will not prevent another mass killing.
Crusades just give some people meaning to their otherwise meaningless lives.
She wanted to use the case of some mental patient from PA who went to NM and bought a regulated firearm without a background check, which he used to shoot up a clinic in Pgh.
However, upon closer look we learn that the sale was already illegal under the GCA of 1968. The seller in NM illegally sold the two guns.
Does she actually think that a background check law (in addition to the laws already in place designed to prevent it) would have stopped the illegal sale?
The grab-nutters are desperate - they see the numbers, they know these measures are not going to get through the House. They'll resort to lies to support their hysteria, as we've seen all too often in this thread.
