You are supposed to register your firearms and federally you are supposed to register all purchases that are made. The federal fire arms license person or dealer is supposed to register those as well, so again, that can come into play for you as well as the dealer who doesn’t properly make his sale transaction and then you have people who are selling without a license or somehow giving, trading something that could create a problem for people there because of the licensing and permit requirements all within the federal system regarding firearm charges.
