Confirmed: HQL Needed to Take Possession of Handgun After September 30

See the following link for the AG opinion that specifies a handgun purchased prior to October 1, 2013 but taken possession of after September 30, 2013 will need an HQL.

http://delegatemike.com/ag-opinion-s...1-without-hql/

The document specifies the HQL is needed for taking possession after October 1, 2013. However, I believe the law specifies the HQL is needed after September 30, 2013.

Thanks for that.

It will be important.

I'm assuming that just means if your dealer won't release to you prior to Oct 1st, so if they do the 8, 10, or 14 day release your in the clear, or are they saying if your ND hasn't come back prior? I'm reading it as, released to you prior to Oct 1st, its in your possesion, and no need for the HQL.

And then there will still be dealers claiming they fight for our 2A rights but won't do 8-day release. What a joke.

Wonder how that will hold merit.

I interpret it as taking possession after September 30, 2013. The term in the letter is "deliver/take delivery." Therefore, it is irrelevant as to when the ND comes back.

Moral: only purchase handguns from timely-releasing dealers to avoid the HQL.

Tinfoil hat on....Could this be a ploy to try and scare dealers away from releasing on time? The key words that i take away from her reply are "It is in my view".

Also, get your purchase done before 9/15, just to be on the safe side.
