Approved for Silencer: will it show on my background check?

    I got the ATF stamp for silencer recently. And I just had a panick attack: if I apply for other jobs in the future, will a mandatory background check reveal that I am in possession of a silencer? Will ATF put that info in my background check? I worry because I may apply for jobs in a non-gun friendly liberal state.

    Inputs are appreciated.

    Why would you want to do that? Then you'd lose your silencer if possession was illegal in that sort of state. :confused:

    I know silencer is allowed in that state. What about the background check?

    IIRC that's a $200 TAX STAMP. Unless they're doing a thourough search of those specific TAX records, i.e. subpeona or warrant, I don't see a problem.

    So unless that's what they are specifically looking for, they won't find it.

    If you're that concerned about personal information, why are you listing your firearms in a public internet forum?

    ^^^^ Excellent point.

    IF the NFA stamp really is still treated like a tax, then it should be confidential like all other tax information. Unless you are in court or you approve it, I don't see how it would show up. Is your employer really going to start digging for gun records? Plus, just because the state may be anti-gun doesn't mean the company will be.

    he is very tuned in to the world of supressors. Knows the paper work, the atf, little things you shoud and should not do , to get one. he also has good relationships with a couple of the bigger supressor makers.

    Tax stamps won't even show on a NICS check. You'd think they'd help, but nooo, my buddys got several stamps, and still gets delayed.:rolleyes:

    Retro,

    If we just had a few more people like you,
    we would not have to worry about being
    gun owners. </sarcasm>
