Brookfield came back to bite me yet again.
I bought a pistol, the local dealer did the background check Tues., I was supposed to pick it up today, but he called & said the WI DOJ called him TODAY & told him they're putting it on a "3-day" hold (which because it's over a weekend is actually a 5-day delay).
Why they couldn't tell him that when he did the background check on Tues. is beyond me.
I called to find out why, & the gal at the DOJ said it was because I was arrested & there's no record of the disposition of the case.
Well, DUH, of course there's no record! There was no case, not even a ticket!
So the DOJ has to get in touch with the Waukesha DA to confirm what I told her on the phone.
I offered to email her the DAs letter, & even had my attorney for that case call. The DOJ gal said the letter wasn't good enough unless they received it from the DA's office.
Haven't heard back yet; maybe tomorrow.
So fair warning to those of you who have been arrested, especially "for the cause" - when you try to buy another firearm, they're going to trip over your arrest & delay the process even more than usual.
The up side, if there is one, is that once this gets straightened out it's the last time they'll have to deal with it.
I know how you feel.....
