The permits in most states do not list owned weapons and can’t be used to conduct a trace. Do you really need everything spelled out for you?<quoted text>
asked you a question , if a hand gun can't be track why do you need a permit... and now you admit two types of permit , tracking is my point .. go back to the beginning of the book before you argue that was my point somewhere somehow some way that pistol is trackable
The gun in manufactured. The manufacture must maintain a record where each unit is sold. Did I lose you yet?
The gun goes to a distributor and they must maintain a record where they sold it.
The dealer must keep a record of the end user they sold to.
From that point forward the trail may be lost. I keep records but not all people do. There is no legal requirement. The trace could stop at this point.
