Still have the govt knowing you bought a gun with the background check. Best to buy from a newspaper classified ad to leave no trace for Baraks minons to track you down....or maybe, and let them and get some practice in!
My son has a Tennessee carry permit, and I am taking the class tomorrow. I’ll have the certification behind me then I can have that debate with myself whether it is a good idea for the state to know that I have a permit. Although a person in Tennessee can get a permit without owning a firearm, I’ll be on a list. I have been on this planet for 61 years and had a rifle and access ro a handgun since I was twelve, and I have to go to class.
Tennesse, especially East Tennessee is a bit like Texas as far as gun ownership is concerned. Even Knoxville does not require local firearm registration.
Don’t forget gunshows and now is the time to start going before they are ended. Not by a ban, but the red tape and financial burden on the promoter will be so harsh that no one can afford to stage them. That’s the secret of this “loop hole” closing effort. It is a sly way to end gunshows without actually prohibiting them.
