Top 5 Media Gun Myths

Adam Scepaniak

Hello everyone! I'm the C.M.O. and Manager for The Guns and Gear Store of Rogers and Waite Park, MN. Also, I'm a Smith & Wesson Certified Armorer, Glock Certified Armorer, a guest writer for Sierra Bullets, an avid pistol shooter, reloader, and have an addiction to classic double-action Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers. I love the challenge of hunting different game whether its elk, black bear, feral hogs, whitetail deer, or prairie dogs. What can I say? I love my firearms, the great outdoors, and I have a wonderful family to do all of this with!

  1. I think one of the biggest misconceptions is that “the government knows about every single firearm we own” which is far from the truth!

    Your required by law to keep all 4473’s you fill out.
    You have to keep them until you close the doors.
    4473’s have a spot were you fill out make model sn sold to the individual.

    What happens to those 4473’s when you close your doors for good?

    They’re put in the backdoor registry in Virginia.

    Love the store guys, but there is more to the story.

    • The 4473s do document the Manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, and Caliber, but as stated earlier, that information is not given during the background check. Unless you commit a crime and law enforcement is tracking you down as an individual or the firearm itself, the government is never afforded those finite details of your purchase.

      As far as storage of the 4473s, the government never touches them either. All Federal Firearms Licensed dealers must keep their completed 4473s in storage for a designated period of time before their destroyed. The reason for storing completed ones is for retrieval of information if crimes are committed.

      The only instance where the government would be informed of your purchase is if you committed a crime; and in that event, they deserve to know that information to protect others from someone doing harm.

        Unless you live in California, where all firearms purchased after 2014 have the description of the long gun is now recorded (see AB 809).
