The following is a video transcript.
In North Carolina, there is no requirement that you report a stolen firearm, but as a practical matter, it is a wise thing to do. That way, if your firearm is used in the commission of a crime, law enforcement officers will not show up at your residence because they think you are the perpetrator.
Also, you should know that in North Carolina, there is no requirement that a firearm be registered. Even though there is no duty to report a stolen firearm or even to register it, you should report it stolen and keep information on your firearm in a safe place for insurance purposes.
That information should include the make, model, and the serial number of the gun. Also, taking a photograph of the gun would be a good idea to document its condition.
This information should be kept in a safe place such as a safe, a safety deposit box, or simply in an email to yourself.
For any questions about documenting your firearm, call U.S. LawShield and ask to speak to your Independent Program Attorney today.
