Say I bought a gun from someone, but at that time, there was no registeration or anything of that nature, but I want to register the handgun now, how do I go about doing that or am I just better to throw it away?

Are you talking about a pistol, rifle, shotgun and in what state. I will try and provide you with the link for the state law once you respond.

There is no firearm registration in Tennessee.

You do not have to register guns in the state of Tennessee. If they pass a law tomorrow saying all firearms must be registered, I would register the ones I have purchased through dealers and left a paper trail. The others just don't exist.

My feelings exactly. Of course, in florida there is no registration yet, and hopefully never will.

It's a 9mm compact pistol....so you all are telling me that once I own a pistol, with or without a receipt, I just got get a LTC, and I can carry the pistol with me whenever?

All you have to do is be 21, take the 8 hour (no getting out early) class, fill out the application (a glorified BATF 4473 form) and pay $115 to the state, get finger printed and wait. Then you can carry anywhere except where is prohibited by law.

So you mean to tell me in TN, there is NO form of tracking handguns and pistols other than who it was originally sold to?

Purchases of handguns from dealers are tracked but purchases from individuals are not. That doesn't mean that I can buy a gun for you because you are unable to purchase one yourself. I have to purchase the gun for myself. If after a time I decide I don't want it, I can sell it to you. I still think I would rather take it to an FFL and let them do a transfer for me. That way the gun is taken out of my name and put in some one elses.

This goes for rifles and shotguns too.

Why are you so anxious for big brother to know what and how many firearms you have? I follow the letter of the law when purchasing new guns, but I covet my guns that the government doesn't know about. I'm not a paranoid freak, but it's none of their $%&@#!* business what and how many guns I have. It's none of the government's business how many guns any citizen has. If the person who sold you the gun is not worried about transfering it, you shouldn't either.

Wait, but if you get caught with an unregistered gun, aren't you liable by law....as in jail time?

You can't get caught with an unregistered gun because there are no registered guns.

Yeah but say you were in a car and you had a rifle sitting on the back seat of it. If the cop ran the serial numbers, and it wasnt registered, wouldn't that warrant arrest?

Your missing the point. All the police can do is run it to see if it is stolen. That is all.....we are in Tn, not NY.

I've actually told a officer I had a rifle in my truck, said it was unloaded...that was the end of it. Then after all these lovely people helped em, turns out they don't even know who owns what gun, all they can do is track it back to who it was originally sold to....LoL I LOVE Tennessee

Good ole Rocky Top.

No "registration" only permits to carry concealed.

Almost right Saints. It's a permit to carry. Tennessee is not an open carry state like Virginia, but the TN permit allows that too. I know that you know this. Just trying to keep things straight for those who might not know.

I know, I get excited some times. I can't wait for mine to get here. It will be 2 weeks since finger printing this week.

I think I'm just going to give up on mine. I got fingerprinted sometime in march. I got accused of being arrested of assault. I called and got yelled at by a black woman. Screw this red tape nonsense. I hope they enjoyed my $115. I'm going to run for Governer one day, steal $115, and resign. Macho just wants what is his. :lol:

I called the handgun permit office because they wanted me to send court documents that didn't exist. They said not to worry because it was an in office error and they'd work it out. They are extremely hateful and loud. If you ever have to call them I suggest you sit around for an hour or so and and just relax and get into a good mood so you won't go insane and cuss them out when you call.

I work on a computer help desk. I am pretty good at being calm when dealing with "stupid" people. Good luck. I hope I don't have your problems.

Hey Saints, I have a friend who used to work the Plodigy help desk. After working with one individual for a while both he and the caller concluded the caller was an idiot. Actually was a friendly conversation. Unfortunately, that was one of the calls being monitored. Got his pink slip about 30 minutes later. B{

Hang in there, your permit could show up any day. They have really speeded things up with the new electronic fingerprint taking. From what I am told, they won't tell you, but they already know if you have passed the background check before you leave the room. I understand the check takes an average of 14 seconds. If you look carefully, you will probably find some friendly LEOs within a couple of blocks of the fingerprinting site. I can only speculate why they are there. :rolleyes:

Macho, I want to encourage you to keep fighting on the permit. The local Representative delegation is pretty pro-carry. You may need to write a polite letter asking them for help, with a copy to the folks holding up your permit.

I don't know but the girl taking them did say that I should have my permit in the mail withing 30 days. I am very impatient and these last 7 months have proven that.
