    There is no doubt that having a national data base would make it easy for the government to send out letters to owners if the laws require surrender of certain firearms. I also feel they will use civil penalties, tax liens, IRS fines to enforce the surrender of the weapons. Same as they are doing to tax us for obamacare. There will be no door to door gun grab. To many doors to knock in the U.S.

    Now, all handguns purchased through FFL or private party are already registered except antique/collectibles. Rifles have DROS. I am pretty sure data from DROS for rifles can be extrapolated and inputted into the existing database for registered handguns. The government probably doesn't even need people to do it voluntarily with their rifles. They can get the info from existing records.

    I have been worrying about my RAWS for quite sometime as I followed the law and registered them back in 2000. They will probably be the first to go if a grab is attempted. Guess they will probably only get a cut up lower receiver though to be in compliance.

    Right now, long guns are not registered by S/N or any other identifying feature except "long gun". That may change.

    The fines and penalties for non compliance will be the start but rest assured, eventually they will be physically confescating firearms, in person.

    For AR15 style rifles, replace your "registered" receivers with non-registered. Get an 80% finished receiver and finish it yourself. No registration required.

    Registration is not part of the second amendment.

    The nice thing about Utah is that they do not keep a database on guns sold for that reason. If a gun turns up in a crime, they go to the manufacturer to see what shop it was sold to. The shop keeps a record of who they sold it to. The state keeps no record. I imagine that if the government wanted information on ever gun sold , they could do it, but by the time they tracked down every gun, all mine will have already been reported stolen!

    I can only speak for Cali based systems and you are correct. Only handguns show as registered when you run a serial number in the Automated Firearm System (AFS) which is what LE uses. When the number comes back to a match it not only gives the registered owners name but also DROS info as well. Of course it will also say if the gun has been reported lost or stolen. Multiple hits come back to different firearms also due to the same serial numbers used on different make and caliber of guns.

    Now, rifles and shotguns that were purchased via a dealer or from a private party also have a DROS attached to them but they do not show up in the AFS as registered to an individuals name (yet). I suspect it would be very easy to gather all the DROS info on long gun sales at least in the state of Cali and add this to the info in the AFS database which already contains all the handgun info.

    Now the feds want a national database created with everything. I am guessing that would involve taking each states current database of info such as AFS in California and transferring that info into the national data base. They will also accompany this with proposed new legislation laws mandating that every firearm you own must be registered with prints and photos of the owner. They basically want to know what ever law abiding citizen currently legally owns be it handguns, rifles and even ammo it seems.

    This is absolute BS and I do believe it is one of the steps leading towards confiscation and forced surrender of firearms. So what about the millions of people that just say F it and I am not registering my rifle? Well, look at what you end up with here. You have something you were supposed to register but chose not to and maybe even with the BS laws they are trying to pass you were suppose to surrender it but chose not to as well. Of course criminality is now involved but more important actually is you have something in your possession that you can't even use for your pleasure hobby, hunting, competition shooting, any longer. You can't even take it out to the range any more and have fun target shooting. Self defense? Well guess you could use it for that and go with I'd rather be judged by 12 then carried by 6 dealio. Libbys are trying to F us out of everything plain and simple and guns (the 2nd) are just one of the vestiges that conservatives hold near and dear and the socialist regime is trying to take that away from us. History has shown us what happens when dictators take guns away from their countries citizens.

    All transactions starting in 2014, long guns will be recorded just as pistols.

    Private party sales are the hardest to trace.

    True story. Yes they will come for them. In CA if you owned a rifle that they call a assault weapon you had to reg them with CA DOJ. Like stated the gooberment only get serial numbers for hand guns. Rifles are not reg. You do go thru a background check but numbers stay in the dealers hands for 20 years. OK So apx 6 months after it was law the ATFE came to him, he is a personal friend as is his #2 guy. We all belong to the same lodge and both told me the same story. Neither would lie about this. They came in, atf with a bunch of paper work. He said it was about 2 inches thick. Probably 150 to 200 pages, Told the Sheriff that they were all people who had bought a so called assault weapon and did not register them. They wanted for him to go get them. He told them NO. He would not do that and if they wanted them to go and get them their selfs. Then he add that if he gets a phone call from a citizen and are being put in danger by them he would send his men to protect his citizens. They left the county and never came back. How did they find out who bought them? So yes they know and yes they will come when they feel they have sufficient numbers to get it done. Every gooberment agency is a law enforcement agency. I have more true tales I have experienced myself but should not talk about them. good luck to you all.

    Yeah, and that is against the law in cali without a DROS or a relic gun and a C/R license.

    You say this as if the guys who break in your front door will have registered weapons. At the risk of stepping over the line, I'd rather have a private party purchased weapon available in my hands at that moment than have one the government will take away the day before I need it to protect my family.

    Doc, it's against the law to sell someone you know a firearm without first going through a FFL and the ten day "cooling off" period unless it qualifies as a curio-relic. It has nothing to do with someone breaking in your door, unless you think that justifies being just as much a criminal as he is.

    This is one reason I'm leaving CA. They're creating laws that have no effect on the criminal and in fact, will turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.

    Yes, you are correct but for the 10's if not 100's of millions of rifles already owned in Cali, well I feel they can track those and add those to the registration database also just from the DROS records. Just my opinion but I think they would like the mandatory registration law also to make some of their work easier but they will also use existing DROS records to input into the system and cross reference it to see if you complied with the mandatory registration (if it goes into effect at some point for rifles acquired before 2014).
