One of the NRAs and other Second Amendment advocates chief worries is that the government will someday begin registering firearms owners. In Springdale, Arkansas, registration may already be taking place, albeit on a smaller scale.
Alerted by a post on their website, Arkansas Carry began investigating the possibility that law enforcement agencies are keeping and illegally utilizing records of individual transactions at local pawnshops. According to the post:
I live in Northwest, AR and have a amature (sic) radio license as well as a concealed carry license. I listen to the police scanner often and have noticed something the past few months. When doing a background check on some one they will often come back with one of these 3 statements: 1. Pawner of fire arms. 2. Pawner of knives or swords. 3. Pawner of archery equipment. We aren't talking about illegal pawning, just pawning. This happens on routine traffic stops as well as other calls. No other past criminal behaviors most of the time but they were still flagged.

Pawner is 2 syllables, FFL holder is 5.
Maybe the cops are just looking to buy some cheap knives, archery equipment and/or firearms from those pawnshops.....?
Whut the...? LEOs tracking & maintaining a database of every transaction at Arkansas pawnshops?
Something to think about.
You don’t need an FFL to sell knives, swords, or archery equipment. If you think they are just trying to speak more efficiently think again. Also pause to consider how they know this information. An FFL doesn’t show up for a routine traffic stop check.
How would you like to buy some oceanfront property in Illinois?
I can get it to you dirt cheap.
