    I know, having the register a gun is retarded, but its not too bad considering all of the good gun laws we have, but now I have to give out a flyer with the registration card.

    Pretty much it says something along the lines of

    "If you don't lock up your gun, there is a chance you might not see it again

    FACT: Criminals frequently obtain thier guns from auto and residential burglaries

    FACT: Many stolen guns are recovered after they have been used in a violent crime, including MURDER.

    Be resonsible, secure your guns!"

    What does WMD think? I don't mind it, since it does state the obvious and might make people think twice before leaving thier shit unsecured in thier vehicle.

    This is a state-mandated flyer? And is registration state-mandated also? What state is this?
     
  4. As lame as the registration is, the flyer is just giving people information. The advice it gives, as you posted, is good advice. I don't see anything wrong with letting people know the truth and encouraging them to store their guns safely. It's better than telling people that guns used in crimes come from gun shows.

    I know in CT when you buy a handgun the dealer is required by law to give you a flier on gun safety with minors.

    Department mandated flyer. The registration is a county thing. Pretty much anyone is supposed to bring any handgun they buy (even private party) into a police station is register it. We check and make sure they have no felonies or battery-dv convictions and then give them a registration card.

    The flyer is a new thing that came out yesterday. IIRC, of the 40 or so murders we've had this year, 36 have been with guns, and of those 36, something like 30 are with stolen guns.

    In CA they give us a paper that we are suppose to read outloud saying we are not crazy or going to kill someone.

    Oddly enough though, i've only had to do it once so far.

    I'm pretty sure that FFL's are strongly encouraged - if not required - to give out a standard BATF flyer on firearms safety.

    I've seen them here in AZ also, it's national thing that the gov makes dealers give out.
