I understand that it would be easier on me to carry at least a copy of these papers with me in order to keep the wolves at bay, but my question is really more about what the law actually requires, not what would be easiest for me. I would like to know if this is a legal requirement or not (having the paperwork with the weapon, vice simply keeping it safe at home.) I have heard that the tax stamp on the form makes it a tax document and as such these documents are subject to privacy laws which would preclude any law enforcement officer from demanding said document without a warrant or probable cause... In any case I was hoping for a legally definitive answer from someone who really knows the NFA inside and out...
Do you want to be technically in the right or do you want to be shooting?
