A state-level gun database is far more intrusive than a federal gun registry. The average citizen will have many more interactions with state level law enforcement than they will with feds.

There have already been instances where calgunners report what would otherwise be casual LEO encounters turned into tense situations due to AFS. While I understand why AFS can be a useful tool to law enforcement, I think it's too easy to be abused and will lead to some officers developing dangerous habits: "oh, the computer tells me this guy has no guns, he must be safe then" or "wow this guy owns guns? I better be prepared if he makes any sudden movements!"

What's more, this state has made it abundantly clear that they have deep contempt for gun owners and the 2nd amendment. Why on earth would I trust such an entity with information about what guns I own?
Yeah that makes sense, especially if you have nothing else in there. I unfortunately have tons in there already, so it's less of an issue.

How do you go about the NFA form 1?
