Same here in less-restricted MS. It would be unwise not to report a firearm that has been stolen; you might have to come up with an alibi.

Still lovin permit-free car carry in MS.

The waiting period and FOID card seem a little crazy to me; i suppose it is all relative to that which you have become accustomed to.

New York requires immediate reporting of a missing handgun (lost or stolen) but not long guns. Standard Clinton AWB remains in effect for "evil assault weapons" but the law is lax enough you can get a very nice AR of AK without serious issue but with some limitations. Class III devices are banned. Handguns require a permit to own, carry or even touch without an automatic felony conviction. Some counties are shall-issue, others require an act of congress and beatification by the Pope to get a permit. Delays in processing permit applications range from a couple weeks to over a year.

Evil assault weapons? They sound like they'd be fun at parties. All my Modern Sporting Rifle does is stand silently in my gun safe. I have my suspicions about that rifle, though. One day I was at the bench loading some 45 ACP and I heard that rifle say something about it wanting to mount my ACOG. I wonder what that's about...

Ditto for New Jersey with an extra helping of WTF?
