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...

then its not difference at all if its registered or not

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.

Buy your guns now in USA, last night reports sounded like a major blow to gun manufacturers, Obama and his boys want to clean things up a bit.

    • Look again  HSO Baby
    • 39 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, yesterday we had sleet and snow and the furnace was running when I got home, things I do not want to see hear towards the end of March. Was in the big city yesterday at the clinic, Thursdays are chemo days so I was hooked up to an IV for most of the day. However I did spend most of my day chatting up the guy who was sitting next to me. Interesting fellow he was before retiring the CEO of a hospital and spent a lot of his down time on a northern lake that is on my bucket list to fish. What better way to learn a lake then by someone who has fished it for the past forty years. I am hoping to share a chair alongside of him next Thursday. When I was getting blood drawn I sat next to yet another interesting guy. He to was retired but I was to find out that he worked at Cape Canaveral for thirty years where he was a jig and fitting’s guy. His job was to take an idea and make it real for the rockets they launched there. Another guy was sitting behind us ease dropping and he pitched in that he new a guy who lived in a small town up the shore who was also retired and his job was to fly a helicopter and pull the astronauts out of the ocean when they landed. Funny where local guys land up and what jobs they acquire. I gave all three of them Lodge business cards, would be interesting future Lodge members.   So the good and bad part of doing chemo is last week was a great week, Since I was last in the hospital I took on a huge amount of water weight. Last week I lost twenty-one pounds I was a very happy camper when I got off the scale, Hope to repeat it again this week, now the bad part is I am back on steroids and I have to take them for three days running after every treatment, the side effect is insomnia. Last night I only slept two hours and then I was wide awake, So at five this morning I made big batch of chili and took my time dicing everything by hand. Should be done here soon and I already called Elmer and Chuck to come over for late lunch.   Even though it is cloudy out you can tell the sun is up longer and higher in the sky, my seedlings in the South window are finally starting to grow and even the tobacco is becoming bigger then dots. Only a month before stuff should go out to the greenhouse and two months before we start planting in what was looking to be an early spring, now I am not so sure. I did roll a few cigars an I am getting better at it, I am surprise at how much tobacco leaf I am using up on a single cigar. I may have to plant more then I was planing this summer.   It was nice to go to the big city though, I have been locked away in the cabin most of the winter and the fresh air is good for me. The wife is none too happy as I am building a pretty good Honey Do List of my own! for her her at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • Yea....but..... that stuff is complicated.....who knew?
    • I'm sure the resident silly town neocons will respond with a meme blaming libertarians
    • So the GOP controls the house, the senate and the Whitehouse and they can't do anything with it, probably a good thing. 
    • All this winning......   Hillary in jail Wall Street reigned in Swamp drained Obamacare repealed Budget balanced Border wall built.   And it's only Friday.   Take the rest of the week off.
    •   Will that be like Wal-Mart with ENTER and EXIT gates?
    •   Their fun to run around a campground on. One of them that I got was someone in our campground who had it and just could not get it to run right and kept fouling plugs out and it ran bad with a lot of smoke. He had it sitting under a tarp for a year as he had given up on it. I asked him what he mixed his oil at? He said 50-1. I said I'll take it and got it for $200. I brought it over to my camper and drained all the gas out and mixed it 80-1 as I know that the book on them said to run them at 100-1. So, new mixed gas and a new spark plug and a hour later I'm running all over the campground with it! He was shocked to see it running so well. Lol
