Semantics.Not quite HG. You are "registered"as someone with a license to carry. That says nothing at all about
whether or not you actually really truly own a gun. Sure, 95% of the time the two will go together, but
there not only are folks who get a license and never buy a gun, there are folks who have licenses with
long term expiration dates who at some point decide they need to pawn it, or give it away.
No one is going to pursue a license to carry and not carry, or at least have one in close access.
Like it or not, you are on a database as a gunowner, whether you have one or not.
When push comes to shove in this country, do you really think that that particular goldmine of information will be ignored? If you do, you don't follow history very well.
I know better.
Do you knw how many times I have heard the Dispatcher say" be advised that Mr. X has a CHL"? And thats from people that dont want to take your gun.

If the govt. ever wanted to make any assumption as to if any person was a gun owner or not they would not need much of what you would think they would need.
All they would need to do is look at your credit card transactions to see if you ever purchased anything with a C.C. that was firearm related...like your last holster purchase or your Outers Cleaning Kit.
And then you would say: But, But, I only bought those as gifts for a friend! And they would then reply: Sure...you did Mac ~ We believe you...Sure You Did! (sarcasm) and so if things ever got to THAT extreme dire point - do you think they would really care about having any absolute PROOF about who you might or might have not bought what for?
Or would they just terminate you for the heckovit or haul you off to the FEMA Camp to eliminate the possibility that you actually bought that gun stuff for yerself and not "for a friend" ???

Sometimes I have to just sit and laugh as I read a thread. This is one of those cases.
If you have a CCW permit and the government should ever ban possession of firearms, or just handguns, you're going to be on their list. If you think you can avoid that because it is possible to have a permit and not own a gun you're trying too hard to think your way out of an unwinnable situation. The feds could very well demand that your state hand over their CCW database or lose federal funding for schools, roads, medicaid, etc. Most, if not all, states would then make that information available to the feds. They could then easily use that list to start their door to door gun collection. If they come to your home and you try to claim you don't own guns they're much, much more likely to detain you and search the house than they are to believe you and just march on to the next house.
In fact, for those rare individuals that may have a CCW permit and no firearm I'd probably recommend getting your hands on one to turn in. I'm positive that your life would be much more simple if you were able to hand them a Rossi revolver and tell them that's the only gun you own. At least then there's a chance they'll believe you and go on their way. In fact, if one were planning on resisting and not turn in guns even at gunpoint it may not be a horrible idea to have a gun or two that you could hand the BATFE in that situation.

Yes ur registrated with ur state with ur permit. Ur weapon if u got it new or used through a FFL is registrated with the Feds with forms u filled out.
No it is not an official registration........ However having a permit means it is highly likely you own one or more firearms.... I guess one could say its mighty close to registration.

Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."
1) While there is no "Registration" requirement; your local, state and federal authorities know that you have a CCP.
2) If you purchased your weapon at a gun store, they know what type it is.
(IF) confiscation ever became law, "they" would know who to ask. ALL CCP holders (and) purchasers of guns would be approached.
(IF) you have no CCP and purchased at a gun show from a seller with no civic responsibility, you are under the radar; unless of course you were stupid enough to sign your real name at the shooting range when you checked in.
