This bill provides requirements for law enforcement officials to certify federal firearm transfers within a certain time.

This bill:
. requires law enforcement officers or other eligible officials to certify certain federal firearm transfers;
. provides that the certification is granted only for firearm transfer applicants not prohibited by law;
. specifies a time period within which the law enforcement officer shall certify and return the form to the applicant; and
. if the certification is denied, provide the reasons in writing to the applicant within a specified time period.

Is it more treasonous to violate the Constitution or to expose the violation?

This bill was passed by the Utah Legislature and has been prepared for the governor's signature or veto.

I've not heard of any counties, the only one I could imagine that would even question this might be Salt Lake, but there are police chiefs in individual cities that sometimes won't.

Well if you live in Salt Lake County, then it's Nick Roberts who signs for Jim Winder, at least for the two I've done. 2 to 3 day turn around.
