The Senate voted 31-0 to approve an urgency bill that would take the $24 million over three years from a Department of Justice account funded by gun owners who pay a fee when they register their guns with the state.

So basically you had to play games 6 ways from Sunday just to GET a gun ..and then? You get a letter essentially telling you "You have a gun. WE KNOW you have a gun and we know precisely where you're at while watching carefully to see what happens with that gun".

Is this your first purchase? It could be a letter they send for every purchase while the test is for all first-time buyers. There are probably county and city ordinances that require the test but the state sends the letter anyway. I don't see a problem with it. I think it's important that gun owners know their responsibilities. I think it's a serious problem that people think it's ok to store loaded weapons in kitchen ovens and shoeboxes in their cloest.

Waste of time, wast of money to send out a letter pointing out a self-evident concept. I agree, with you DirtyD, it smells of intimidation...or a really lame PR move...what else could it be?
