ABSTRACT
The article presents an examination of the constitutionality of waiting period laws as a regulation of the Second Amendment of the U.S. for the purchase of firearms. It notes that the court judgment indicates that the waiting periods for the purchase should be no longer than twenty-four hours. It also explores waiting period laws and analyzes arguments on both sides of the issue to determine that longer waiting periods should be struck down.
