Thread: Can you carry?

  1. #11
    I have had a question about this issue. What happens to the records that the FFL fills out when you buy a gun? Is that accessible to the state? If it is that is a defacto registration for anything going through an FFL.

    Is there a requirement to notify LE that you're armed in Missouri?

    Form 4473 stays in the FFL's files, and is not accessible by the state unless a gun is found at the scene of a crime. The LEO contacts the manufacturer. The manufacturer runs serial number; tracks sale to FFL. LEO looks at form 4473 and final purchaser's name.

    Plain and simple. No.

    It's not per se, but there have been attempts by the ATF to gobble up old records from FFLs that retire. As it is right now, it's not a backdoor registration.

    For what it's worth, whenever I do a private sell (both of them) I ask the buyer to meet at my favorite gun store and I have the gun store do a 4473 and background check before exchanging funds. Just to cover my behind I even did it when selling a Ruger hunting pistol to my brother. At least here in Indianapolis my store only charges $10, and I'll pay that for the peace of mind of not possibly having ATF or police show up and ask about a purchase I made being used in a crime.

  10. My good friend is a cop ran the serial # for me at the time of purchase, it is clean. So I am good to go there!

    Thanks for all of the advice.

    And to my knowledge, you DO NOT have to register guns in the state of Missouri.
    You sound like you've been listening to stories by cowed St. Louis residents. Seriously, not only do you not HAVE to register guns in Missouri, there is no way that you could register them even if you wanted. None. RSMO 571, the chapter on illegal use of weapons, contains nothing about registering any weapons. RSMo. 23.751 preempts the entire field of firearms regulation to the state legislature with an exception allowing lesser political subdivisions (counties, cities, etc.) to regulate OPEN CARRY of weapons. Otherwise, there can be nothing more restrictive than in the state laws.

    I understand that right after Missouri's CCW law passed, some St. Louis suburbs like Hazelwood were confiscating guns and demanding proof of ownership before returning them. I've been told that stopped after Chief Wolf received a letter from the A.G.'s office explaining just how much liability he was exposing himself and the village to for doing that.

    So, short answer, carry any gun you want whether you own it, your boy friend owns it, your girl friend owns it, you borrowed it from your parents or in-laws, or whatever just so long as it's not reported as stolen.
