Also, it helps with large scale arms trafficking, and theft straight from the factory/warehouse/store/etc. Otherwise it's pretty useless, and even then, its useless unless someone drops the gun and they can link the guy to the actual theft of the gun, otherwise they'd just confiscate it

That's not true. There is no database of who owns what guns, except for a couple shitty states. Literally the only people who have records of what gun you bought is the gun store, and that's if you bought it from a gun store. So, even if they find a murder weapon that's a gun, they'd have to figure out exactly what gun store it was bought from. When there's at least a few gun stores in any major city, that's no small task. And like I said, you may have not even bought it from a gun store. Private sale between individuals is perfectly legal in most states. They want you to keep the serial number on the gun so they can maintain the illusion that they could track you down rather quickly if you murdered someone and ditched the gun or something similar.

The ATF can and will track gun ownership if they find a gun used in a crime. The serial number is kept by the manufacturer, who they call first. The manufacturer then tells them who they sold that gun too, as they are required to keep those records. Generally, the gun passes through two or three middle companies before it reaches a store. Each of those companies is required to keep records of the guns they transfer. When it finally reaches the store, a customer has to fill out a 4473 form and get a background check before they can purchase a gun. Eventually, the ATF can track the sales to the store where it was sold to the customer and will ask for that store to fax the 4473 form to them.

It's not quick. That is for damn sure, but it's not meant to be. But they can track it.

Source. I sold guns for a retailer and had to learn all this shit. Even talked to an ATF agent face-to-face when they came to our store for an inspection of our records. We sent about 20 4473s a year to the ATF. Not all of them were for violent crimes, but for people who became felons and had guns seized. They had to verify ownership of the firearm or if it was stolen.

Huh I didn't know that as a Brit, I guess it does have a placebo effect of reducing crime as you said.

I really don't get why it's illegal. The gun doesn't imprint it's serial number on every surface around it when it fires, so it's not really for identifying the gun. it's mostly for the gubmint to keep track of who owns what guns.
#84 - montybalboa (03/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, the serial numbers are so that if a gun is used in a crime and located it can be linked to a person.
