    Here's the real crappy part of it. You'd think, especially with this Doofus POTUS, they'd make it easier on FFLs to check for stolen/illegal guns. Did you know there is no consolidated way for FFLs or pawn shops to check??? Now, some might not care, but if the government would provide a platform to report stolen guns and require the stores to check first or be liable (and, alternatively, help solve crimes), it might reduce the availability of stolen guns. At least, they'd have to sell them privately. And if they made the registry open to anyone, then even a private buyer could check to see if a gun was stolen. Of course, the scratched off serial number might be a clue....

    Update, my pistol was found in Jackson, Mississippi when someone tried to sell it at a gun show. A guy tried to sell it and the buyer checked the serial number which showed up as stolen.

    Really glad it was found. I hope you get it back soon and that the thief is prosecuted.

    So you're saying I should record my serial numbers?

    If by chance any of your guns are stolen, they will probably ask for serial numbers and possibly make it easier to track down when reported, so yes, I would think that's a good idea.
    I would go further in stating that anything valuable that has a serial number, it would be a good idea to have the number recorded somewhere safe.

    One of our customers got his gun back after it being stolen from their home.....5 years later..........I just did a transfer on a gun that was returned to the owner after 3 years from the Shreveport PD..........

    But it still amazes me how many gun owners don't have all their serial numbers written down somewhere....

    There is a platform, a national one. It is called NCIC. It is a LE database.

    Aren't pawn shops required to submit serial numbers to the local PD?
