    What's the point of a waiting period for us other than inconvenience?

      Nothing will ever stop all crime.  We both understand that.

      Having to wait 10 days to pick up a new rifle can be a little annoying - for instance, I only got my hands on my primary Xmas gift last week.

      That's a pretty small imposition if it stops some dude who just found out his old lady is cheating from stopping in the pawn shop to get a pistol before he heads to the bar to attack her lover.

      If he already owns one?  Well, shit, he already owns one.  

      It sure won't stop every hothead from having a gun when he does something rash.

      But that's not my bar.  A very reasonable case can be made that it's pretty likely to stop a few, and it deprives me of no essential liberty.
