I have to admit I don’t understand anything about how firearm registration is documented, where it is kept, who has access to it, etc. I know this is a very broad question and the answer might be “it depends”. As a responsible gun owner I feel I should understand this.
For examples all of these were hypothetically purchased by me while a resident in Florida and all FFL transfers were executed in Florida:
- A handgun purchased from Sports Authority – Sports Authority is no longer in business. Who has the details of the model and S/N today?
- An AR-10 purchased from Walmart before they stopped selling them.
- Another handgun purchased from Gunbroker.com, shipped to a Florida FFL and transferred to me.
- A Ruger Precision in 6.5 Creedmore bought at BassPro – BassPro still in business.
