    Hi, my first post in a long time so if this has been asked before I am sorry.
    I got a new gun on Sunday. I do paper work and am told the government will not
    Keep my info on record for more than 3 months. Does anybody believe this is. True??
    Should I buy at a gunshow from now on??

    Just wondering.

    I personally would not buy a gun at a gun show. Magazines, ammo, and add-ons yes.

    Washington does not do a backround check for private sale at gun shows. FFLs must do them at shows but not private sales.

    I buy at shops all the time.I'm not too worried if they know what I have.
    If they come they come.
    Now I do have a couple friends that will not buy a gun at a FFL. One has never bought a new gun at a dealer.
    So if you are askeered the government will come to get your guns,buy only from private sales........without a receipt or copies of your license and carry permit.

    If they come to collect the firearms it won't matter if your on a list or not unless they only want some of them they know they would have to go to EVERY HOUSE APT CAMPSITE HOTEL MOTEL RV AND TEE PEE in the country other wise all they would have done is scare and piss off the people who still have guns that aren't on any list.

    IMAGINE how long it would take to search every dwelling in the USA........and how many would not be smooth sailing. Now imagine how many teams it would take to replace the teams that started.

    I think it matters not whether you buy private or at a dealer. The pure fact of the matter is legally hiding a gun by private sales really does much, for if you have one dealer weapon and they do a search and find the others you bought private guess what ? They will most likely take all of them I am sure and warrant or Marshall law will by pass any simple paperwork and BG checks.

    I have both private and dealer purchases in fact got a call today from a dealer my new gun came in, and really never think of the BG check as it is what it is.
    As I said if the government puts into law they want your guns, well they may not have your gun but ammo you have stored won't keep forever and it won't be in stores. I see no reason to worry too much about it, as if you have any papers like concealed etc, they will know you own firearms too.

    Just seems a tad over the top to worry they will come get our guns imagine the fatalities on both sides if that started.
