CHL = Registration?

From time to time I have considered getting my CHL, but I can't seem to get past the idea that, if things go badly for the 2nd Amendment, having a CHL is like saying "I HAVE A GUN, COME AND GET MINE FIRST". Is this an irrational fear, or is there some degree of safety in the number of people with a permit?

Have you ever bought a firearm from a dealer?

If the answer is "yes", you're just as "registered" as having a CHL will make you.

You'd be very surprised to learn that some folks who don't own guns at all have a CHL here in Texas.

You just posted on a gun related web site. You are now on the list of suspected gun owners. WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

You are more registered when you buy a gun than when you get your CHL, when you get your CHL, all they know if you qualified with a SA or Revolver, they do not know what kind or a serial number. Like someone said in an earlier post, when you buy a gun, they have all the information.

I would not let that keep you from getting your CHL, if it ever did come to what you are thinking, you could just tell them you sold the gun and do not remember what the guy looked like but he said he did not have mental or criminal record.

"They" don't have any information except if you purchased a long gun or handgun.

Do "they" actually KNOW you bought a firearm?
Or do "they" only know you WANTED to buy one?
You can back out of a sale after NICS check, no?
Although they could subpoena dealer sales records.

If you're trying to stay off the radar, don't get your CHL, don't buy guns from federally license dealers, don't post on gun-related websites, and above all don't ever carry your gun on your person or in your vehicle.

Carrying the gun on your person will likely land you in jail. Then what happens to your RKBA? Carrying the gun in your vehicle in Texas is ok (in most cases), unless you're stopped and the officer asks if you have a gun in your car. Are you going to lie?

There are certain things you just can't get around. Our government has seen tothat. It's like Joe Pesci says; "They f*** you in the drive-through..." etc., etc. CHL legislation flies in the face of the 2nd Amendment, in my opinion, but it is what it is. What's the alternative? We follow the law and we do our best to change the ones we don't like. Breaking the law only lands you in jail.
