I agree with you completely. I too will never comply with a firearms license or registration scheme. Cold dead hands and all.

``"The info was in an electronic file that no one did anything with," MacLeish said.``

No-one except the people who had access to electronic files (which if only kept since 2005 because of a "glitch" would not contain 2000-2005 records?) and apparently used those files on a regular basis. Oh well, the original, paper records were destroyed in accordance with the law...

C'mon, register... it's fun!

When the gov can break the law, and claim a clerical error or a computer glitch, with no repercussions or accountability, what’s the point of setting limits at all?

I've said it many times, and I'll say it yet again:

When those who make and enforce the laws do not feel bound to obey the laws themselves, do not enforce them upon one another, and are not held accountable to exactly the same extent that any other citizen would be....

...they are just another gang.

My wife got a call from our insurance agent about a review, and did it just before renewing our homeowner's. I didn't realize anything about this until after it was all done, but she told me that, although we were covered for any objects d'art or jewelry of less than $250K/each value, without any special riders, my guns were not covered above $1k UNLESS they were "registered" and the insurance company had a complete list including serial numbers.

It's too late now, but I'll be looking for a new insurance company next September.

Farmer's, BTW.

bud, read your policy carefully. Could be it covers guns, but your agent doesn't like guns. Could be you need a new agent, not a new company.

I used to have insurance with Farmers. My next door neighbor was a Farmers District Manager and his son was my agent. My policy covered my guns without routinely, and I verified such with both of them before signing.

Damn. Kevin, that "Anonymous" was me again. Suddenly I have to fill my ID in with every comment, which didn't use to be the case. Beats me why.

Not that my proofreading is the cause, y'see. That should be "my gun guns without riders routinely". Sheesh.

I'll see if I can fix it. Meanwhile, thanks again, and I'll try to get better.

That's going to be normal, I think.

If you find someone else, let me know, but I had to get a seperate rider to make sure mine are covered.
