No.

Above and beyond that, I have a C&R license, so it needs to be recorded in my personal firearms book, too.

Is that quid pro quo or out of giving in?

jk;)


Related question, those sketchy fuckers that keep asking if you are selling your guns at gun shows... who thinks those guys are felons that couldn't buy a gun through an FFL dealer?

Why do I get the feeling this is the kinky equivalent of saying, "no don't throw me in that briar patch."

I was implying by voting accident, that they lost thier rights to own a large number of firearms types by voting in evil politicians................ not that they actually lost already existing firearms

Have you ever considered that the "I lost my guns in a tragic boating accident" statement is kind of a running joke???

Two of my neighbors are corrections officers. They will protect me so I don't need no stinking guns.

I lost my boat in a tragic shooting accident.

1. Losing guns to accident will always be legal. At some time in the future, selling them to someone may not.
2. If you say you sold them, the natural followup question is "To whom?" - and there's NO good answer to that question.

You guys have guns? LUCKYYYYYY

Too much paperwork.

You don't understand how this will work.

First they will "get rid of the gunshow loophole". That is Brady-speak for no more face to face private sales. All guns would have to go through FFL's. There would be a "registration" of all guns.

In addition, as has been proposed in many states, any gun that is discovered to be lost, missing, or stolen would have to be reported within 24 hrs (or some other short time limit). So, you can't just say, "Oh, I lost them in a tragic boating accident." The "authorities" would have to have a report on it from you, or you would go to jail for failure to report it.

So, they gotcha both ways.

Also, to make sure you don't "bury" or hide them, they will have mandatory safekeeping of firearms... a licensed safe, which they can inspect at any time, and make sure all the guns registered to you are in that safe. Or as has been done in Europe, guns must be kept at a club armory, not in your home. During WWII when the Nazis invaded Norway they simply took control of the club armories first. That law was pushed through by the prime minister (or whatever the elected leader is called there) John Quisling, who was secretly a Nazi. He did that to prepare the way for the Nazis to invade. To this day being a "Quisling" is as bad as being a "Benedict Arnold".
