So what if he does?Quote:
Do you ask every person during a traffic stop if they are armed? Just wondering...
This will not become an LEO bashing thread. Keep it on track.
The problem is in education, not saying the LEOs are going rogue... they think they have to seize them, but in fact they do not, and are sometime sued for doing so.
will often seize the firearm and require proof of ownership
Well they got that one bassackwards. The burden of proof is on the state to prove that it is stolen, not on you prove that it aint.
I dont see how that get away with that crap.
Welcome to the forum.
Best answer you can get here is: "DON'T look for legal advice on the internet." Contact a lawyer in your area to check on the legality of them running the serial number and proceed from there.

Welcome to your rights and freedoms being intruded upon as well. If you're being profiled, you need to make it a matter of record. Use the FOIA to you benefit. Also....know your rights in your state and....have a go-to attorney to ask questions of. IMO........we're all on the verge of total disaster right now.......I'm not quite sure what's holding things together at this time. In many places, the authorities do have the safety of the public in mind.....however, be increasingly aware that most are not out to harass you in any way.......they want to put you in jail or strip you of your rights forever. Over-criminalization is a new wave and coming to a town near you. Just like property taxes....you never really own anything in this country. Happy Labor Day!
