perfect score for me.
I’m gonna post this on other websites.
Perfect score - but anyone who has purchased guns of every significant variety over the years ought to be familiar with the answers.
Very difficult, but perfect score!
100% for me!
100% here as well. I ran some numbers on the results and the correct answer was chosen 79% of the time. I didn’t expect that high a number...
I would love to see the Obummer’s score on this test .
I got an A++.
Perfect score, too! I only own 3 guns, at this time. A shotgun (12 gauge), a rifle (.270), and a single handgun/pistol (9mm).
You correctly answered 17 times.
You seem to know your gun laws.
I didn’t get a perfect score... but that would be because I think some of those really ARE bad ideas.
I don’t have any guns, won’t ever buy any guns, and sure as pooh would not admit to having any guns in my home. Those 4473 forms with my name and social on them all refer to guns that have been sold. I don’t have any guns in my home now, but if I *DID* I would only buy face to face from individuals. In my state, you can transfer a long gun without any papers at all, and a handgun can be transferred with a concealed carry permit. You might suspect I have handguns b/c of the permit, but you don’t know what I might have. I like it that way.
One other thing. You can buy a parts kit for an AK with NO PAPER AT ALL. You can then buy a flat piece with holes pre-drilled to bend your own receiver. You then have an AK 47 (or 74 if you prefer 5 mm) that NO ONE KNOWS you have. It is perfectly legal. ATF regs simply state you may never sell or transfer the weapon and it has to have a serial number on it. Engrave it, and you are legal.
By the way, if anyone shows up at my door wanting to “talk about” this issue, you can get a warrant.
It seems misleading. It says “test your knowledge..” but it is a questionnaire.
How do I “test my knowledge” with questions like “Do you think a law should....”.
That’s asking my opinion, not necessarily what the law is.
100% for me.
And every single one violates "Shall not be infringed."
'fraid not, you must file an ATF Form 1 and pay an excise tax before you undertake the "manufacture" of a firearm. If you attempt the assembly without a completed and approved Form 1 with an attached tax stamp you are courting serious fines and major jail time. Remember also that a felony conviction will cost you your right to posses any firearms you might currently own.
The Form 1 is very similar to the ATF Form 4 which is required for the transfer of NFA Class III items like machine guns, short barreled shotguns and rifles, silencers, and "dangerous devices". The vetting process for either one can be anything from six weeks to nine months, depending on the ATF work backlog.
Thought you should know.
PS Your right about the "serial number" though, it must appear on the Form 1 when it is submitted for approval.
But it’s kind of an iffy sort of thing. Here in Washington, I can go to a gun show (you have to be registered to be a member which means background check and all that already), but I can go to the show, buy a gun off a private table (somebody selling who doesn’t have an FFL). Then it’s cash on the nail, no background check, sayonara, out the door, and I got a new toy no questions asked.
