    I'm unarmed now.

    Well, look at the bright side, at least you are not on the watch list with the rest of us anymore.

    I never sell at pawn shops. I understand they have to make money but they're just greedy. They never want to give more than about 40-50% of fair market value. They just play on people's desperation.
    That's because they know most of the stuff is stolen and the person bringing it in is happy to get anything cause its more than what they've got in it.
    That's not true. Pawn shops don't buy stolen stuff on purpose because when they do they get screwed.

    my brother is going the the same pain.it has really put him in a bad mood.he is kinda moody anyway so maybe its for the good that he pawned them.

  7. This is second or third person info, so take it or leave it. When you buy or sell firearms at a pawn shop, I have heard that if you are stopped for a traffic infraction, some dispatchers have information radioed to the officer that you are a "pawner of guns".

    Legal? Illegal? Information that is legal to collect and distribute to law enforcement agencies?

    It seemed to me that the info, if legit, is another violation of our rights to privacy. Is this something that our alphabet soup agencies require now?

    I don't pawn or buy pawned items, but this seemed another addition to the apparent big brother meddling in our private lives.

    I realize transactions of firearms kept with 4473s as records, but this was the first time I've heard the "pawner of guns" moniker used, during a traffic stop.

    Any LEOs care to comment on something I may be missing here?

    That's sounds pretty ridiculous. When pawn shops buy guns or take them into pawn several of them run the serial numbers by law enforcement to make sure they're not stolen. They're not required by any means though to tell LE who brought it in without a court order. Unless all pawn shops are voluntarily giving up this information there's no way LE would have it. And it seems like rather arbitrary info to give an officer during a traffic stop.

    Many don't know it but on the form 4473 there is a place that gets checked if it is a pawn redemption. BATFE finds that out when they look at the forms.
