No they have a waiting period of close to a month in CA so he didn't leave with it. Now is it a straw purchase, well not really as he was buying it for his use and not for someone else. Even if the purchase was to prove a point he still can't be charged with a straw purchase.It was actually a pitbull, now I have not seen or read the story yet on the "rescinding" his purchase. I don't understand. Did he have a waiting period like we suffer in CA? I thought he already walked out of the store with the gun; is the store owner saying bring it back?
