Maybe this individual had an FFL, or a Class 3.
I am sure it has more to do with the persons history than anything.Ruger Collector said:Police have computer records at their MDT fingertips, these are not public or criminal records which may be challenged or expunged (as far as I know). When they are sent on calls to addresses with histories, officers are immediately informed of known hazards such as possible drug or alcohol use, mental health problems, or firearm ownership.
Since I have a bi-polar family member I've had to call emergency responders more than a few times over the years to help with manic '10-96' episodes (I have the dispatch numbers memorized so I don't have to waste time with the 911 middle-man). They know there are guns in my house without asking every time, and yes, whenever I call them the nice deputies always show up quickly and in large numbers...
Possibly, or maybe that is how they respond to all mental subject calls. But that doesn't change the fact that they keep permanent records of addresses and note them if they believe there are firearms inside.xmirage2kx said:I am sure it has more to do with the persons history than anything.
Only if that particular residence/address has a history. And it wouldn't tell them they have a CFP, but there were previous instances with guns/other weapons.Car Knocker said:If the police had a name for the person involved, wouldn't possession of a CFP pop up on the screen thus, perhaps, resulting in the dispatch of a greater than usual number of officers?
