Agreed, all that a 4473 tells any one is that at some point you bought a gun or two. Unless they are going to use it to retroactively tax people on those purchases or are going to physically come into my home with the intent to verify I have them, which is a whole other event in itself, my guns bought on 4473's might as well not exist.Even if they register purchases, so long as we have private sales they have no registry.
I don't think it is happening at all.Its not so much about gun registration, imo. This is just another data set to add to NSA and other government data. This is about strengthening the dossiers they have on us. This is about finding out who tends to buy multiple weapons and thus who are bigger potential threats.
Why is that? If you sought control over a population wouldnt you store their information to be used to further control them?I don't think it is happening at all.
Well, yes, but a bit more than that. It tells them specifically and exactly which guns and what their serial numbers are. It really is everything necessary to make a paper registry.Agreed, all that a 4473 tells any one is that at some point you bought a gun or two.
