I tried searching for information regarding this particular form of archiving, and it must be either taboo, or non-existant. There are people who
mentioned this type of thing, but no thread to guide others.
So I'll go ahead and make one.
Extremely simple concept here that alot of citizens already know about but newcomers should try.
Whenever you purchase a firearm or rather anything of value, there is proof of your purchase in a form of receipt, credit card bill, or even a serial
number. Companies, or Corporations, use serial numbers specifically to track their own sales and under UCC law are required
to make sure the
serial numbers have been recorded upon initial purchase. After the item has been exchanged a few times, those initial records could be lost, damaged
or even worse...stolen. So what do you do if your item gets mixed up, or worse stolen
This is the idea, and here's your project:
Create a log book
Write down every firearm purchase you've made and still own, not the $$$ value but the SERIAL NUMBER. If you want to have everything appraised and
valued, that's another thread and time, but for now just create a log of every type of firearm and weapon you deem of personal value. Find the serial
number stamped into the frame, receiver, or barrel of the firearm and be specific. Copy it down with the make, model and any blemishes. It doesn't
have to be a fancy book, either. Just use a simple notepad and pencil. Read that again, notepad and pencil. If you keep information on a computer than
copy it down to paper. NO ONE HAS TO KNOW IT EXISTS BUT YOU...and maybe your loved ones, or someone you completely trust. So lock it up when you are
finished. This information isn't as valuable as the items themselves, but in case of a theft, robbery or even a self-defense act of protection, proof
of ownership will win legal battles.
If you can prove you own the firearm or weapon then no one can take that from you.
NO government, No LEO, no one. Registration my buttocks! You don't need it!
Unless it's stolen and not recovered.
But that's why you have home owners insurance.
Or rental insurance. COVER YOUR BASES! (and cover your firearms!)
There is absolutely NO
conspiracy here...think about it! Say you need to recollect your serial numbers because a drug-addict broke into your
home and stole firearms? No problem, you have a log book. Say the LEO that pulled you over forgot to give you back you lawfully carried firearm? No
problem, you have a log book. I'm not guaranteeing you are going to get your stolen artifacts back in any way, shape or form. But this is good
It will save you in the long run to know what you own by the very numbers that the Corporations use against you. You say the gov't wants to track
your purchases? Then start tracking them yourself!
Good luck out there and keep fighting the good fight!
