Ok, I a new to buying firearms so please don't laugh me off the board for asking a question. Hopefully this is in the right topic area. If and when you (or I) buy a used firearm is it a law to register it? I always thought it was not. I do not wish to have the government know any more about me and my business then need be. If you were the one selling what was registered under your name (if you bought it new) do you have to fill anything out? thanks for your time.
