  •  Then there are heirlooms. (6+ / 0-)

    My hubby inherited his grandfather's shotgun when his father died. Grandpa was the sheriff of a one-horse frontier town in Indian Territory, his shotgun was his most prized and valuable possession. It has never been registered, there were no such laws then, and it's been passed down twice (our grandson will get it when we die). We haven't registered it either, it's not required because it's never been bought or sold.

    Same is true for my father's pearl handled six-guns, which my cousin inherited (he's a collector and dealer). And my brother's muzzle-loaders, pistols and rifles that he collected and passed down to his son (career Navy) when he died. Government registration doesn't have record of every legal - or illegal - gun out there. Never will.

    Now, more than ever, we need the Jedi.
