    This is pretty accurate. As long as you have followed proper procedure, the worst that could happen if it turns out the firearm was used in an illegal activity, is, the firearm could be confiscated and you would be out the purchase price.

    This is pretty much what pawnshop owners go through every day.

    So how does one protect themselves from charges of receiving stolen property if you have no way to know?
    Show the cop your receipt with the weapons serial number.

    Check your State Police website. They might have a link. Here in Fl. I can use a link on the FDLE website.

    Not all inclusive, but it's a start.
    As far as buying a stolen firearm, there isn't much to worry about as far as getting in trouble. If, for some reason, the serial needs to be run by PD, they will inform you it is listed as stolen and will take possession of it. If you can show you purchased it, no harm, no foul. At least this is how it happened to me a few years ago in Texas.
    No charges were filed against me and the Detective simply wanted to know where I got it. (Craigslist posting). he asked for the E-Mail addy of the guy I bought it from. I called him later that day with the addy and I never heard anything more.
