    Maryland gun applications overwhelm police, dealers as tough limits draw near

    "State Police say that through Aug. 31 they had received 85,141 gun-purchase applications this year. For all of last year, police received 70,099 applications and in 2011 they received 46,339 applications. “This person passed all the requirements — gun safety training, no criminal background — but that’s five months to get a background check,” Ms. Sager said. “I don’t mind doing a background check, but what’s the holdup? I understand they’re getting a lot of applications, but why is it taking so long?”"

    Don't folks sign a statement or something saying that they have not been convicted of anything? Why ask for such a statement if you are going to check anyway?

    So they can add a charge of making a false statement to all the other crap they're gonna charge you with.
