Now every time you sell or give a weapon, that weapon will be registered. That is if you live in the totalitarian city of Chicago. You could get a $5000 fin and six months in jail. You coud also get this if a relative steals your guns and you don’t relize it or if you go on vacation and your house gets robbed and you cannot meet the 48 hour exemption. And as far as the destruction rule goes, if a gun is worn enough that it does not fire every time is that included in the “destruction” clause. After all a man did go to jail because his semi-auto was worn enough that it once fired full auto.
penalties are in place for people who do not report the loss, theft, destruction or transfer of a gun within 48 hours
