I received a shotgun as a wedding present from a friend of mine do I need to register with anyone?

the last time I saw a shotgun at a wedding was carried by my uncle behind the groom. The only thing that was registered was the wedding certificate. But, I'm sure he didn't give the scatter gun to the newly found son-in-law.

Now thats funny right there, I don't care who ya are. SB I love the sig. and avitar. That would be a good xmas card logo for the "PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS" Group. and the wedding gun, you don't have to do anything. Only when you buy from a dealer or auction sometime too I think. Private Party's No.

I was reading this week's edition of Minnesota Outdoor News, and in it was a story about a bill that some politicians wrote up. The bill would make everyone with a gun register the gun, along with providing finger prints, a picture, medical and mental health records. The story went on to say that the bill should not make it far though.

If something like this were to ever pass,it would be the responsible hunters and gun owners who would register their guns. What incentive would there be for the criminals committing the violent crimes to go out and register their guns, along with providing all of their personal information.

To say the least, this story really made my blood boil.

As Charelton said "FROM OUR COLD DEAD HANDS" I guess if the only choice is to fight fire with fire we better start takeing this less for granted and get the message out there to our politions that we won't keep them in office unless they keep this America,the way we sportsmen like it. we allot of us choose not to get involved because we think it wont happen, but it can if we go fishing and stuff and forget about it. The only way is proactive and voteing for some people that are on the publics side. If there is not a good canidate wich there seems to be so offten then we need to start comeing up with some.The other side seems to have no trouble pulling these wacko's out of the woods somewhere.

So long as your firearm is not used in a Crime...

Handguns is a good idea to register.. all others.. not an issue

Check your homeowners policy to make sure the guns you own don't go over the limit in the policy. Write down the info on the guns such as make, model, caliber and serial number. If you have any value info record that as well. Put that info with your household inventory and keep that someplace that would survive if there was a fire or a theft.

You don't need to register most guns beyond the requirements that are in place when you buy one. Machine guns may be an exception but there aren't many floating around.

Legally... But it is gut wrenching to know the actual amount of illegal Machine guns "floating" around.. sick

Tom, your advise about home owner insurance is sage. However, most policies cover that sort of stuff up to a certain amount. Mine only covered guns up to 200.00. That's why I have a "rider" for full value of all my guns, Hummels, coins, jewerly, etc. Better check and see just what possesions are actaully covered for thier full value.

We have full gun registration in Canada--everything including air guns have to be registered. Compliance with this law is less than the Gov't had hoped and it was and is extremely expensive. There are various bills in the legislature to do away with the long gun registry but none have passed thru parliment as yet. It's a real PITA.

I had a house fire several years ago and getting them replaced was the easiest part of the whole deal. The gov't had a record of every make and model on file and I just bought replacements--the only thing the Insurance company didn't kick about.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
