Registration DPS-3 form
« on: March 20, 2013, 11:00:01 AM »
A question - after purchasing a gun at a FFL dealer in CT a DPS-3 form is filled out and sent to the state police in Middletown and the chief of police in the purchasers home town. Does anyone know what is done with the information??   Is the state police information retained in a database?  What about the town information?  If the state police put the information in a database they already have "gun registration"...

Don't forget that in addition to the forms, during the course of certain sales/transfers one calls the SLFU to obtain an authorization number before the transaction can be completed.

Information is being collected and recorded as people have reported that law enforcement has told them what firearms they own. Sometimes that information is incomplete or inaccurate.
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Yes. It is all stored in a database and they will know what you purchased at an FFL.

And some places require a spent shell casing be sent to the fbi or pd or what ever it was to hold on record to match it to your weapon if the need ever arises... at least thats what the manual for the Ruger said when I read it last night while holding a spent casing and thinking, "hey Ruger, dont be giving me your trash, I dont need anymore......lol Seriously, i was like, ok, you test fired it, did I need to see a spent shell? lol.

My S&W came with a spent shell from its test firing too. Nothing about Sending anything to the FBI though.

I think the casing is only required to be registered in NY and MD. And i'm sure the number of crimes solved from the spent case database is a big goose egg.

Every pistol I have purchased new or have the original packaging to has come with a spent case.
Don't touch it. Don't even look at it. Go on, get out. You heard me. Don't look at me either.

yeah, there was a little blurb in the manual that said some places requier it sent in, and its easier to just throw one in each box than it is to try and do it for just those shipping to places where you need the spent shell...  if your state / city doesnt, then look at it as proof that the gun has ben test fired and passed. lol

It (CoBIS) was so successful in NY that Cuomo killed the program last year after they hadn't solved a single crime in it's 11 years of operation and $40+ million of tax payer dollars expended (about $1.2 million a year)...
