Why cover serial numbers?
Hey guys. My question is, how come in youtube videos people often cover the serial numbers of their guns with tape so as to obscure it? What could be the negative outcome of broadcasting the serial number of your weapon on the internet if you're a law-abiding citizen? I've always wondered.
another thread: Not a good idea???
Some people also cover their license plate on their car when they post a photo of it. Same thing really. They are concerned about their privacy. A firearm's serial number is unique to that make and model firearm.

Sho nuff... And, especially the license plate... Then, someone could find your home, if they REALLY wanted to.
