"For the do-it-yourself remodeler, obtaining permits is expensive,
time-consuming and sometimes frustrating, but for many home renovations it's
necessary and required. Some municipalities charge 1% of the total
construction costs to issue the permit and may take up to six weeks to
complete the inspections. That's time and money that some homeowners don't
have. Many homeowners sidestep the permit process as a result."
"...cutting a hole for a new window..."
"Even something as simple as moving an outlet requires a permit."
"Most municipalities require a permit for siding projects."
"If you want to replace your water heater, you will need a permit."
"You'll need a permit to unclog a toilet or sink drain" (just kidding)
Must really suck to live in a community that requires permits for anything
more involved than painting the hallway.
Ok, what is a WH? Oh, "water heater"? A permit is required to replace a
water heater? Amazing.
A plumber around here is advertising a 40 gal heater for $600, including
Why would I?
I'm still confused. If registration isn't required, why register? ...or is
there a problem with the two counties if you don't register it? Here people
get "registered" (CCL) not guns. For some reason I had to fill out a yellow
sheet for my last gun purchase (a month ago), though.
The yellow sheet was ATF Form 4474. It, and the informtion on it, stays with
the seller unless and until he goes out of business.
In my state, and a few others, if you have a CHL (CCL), the dealer does NOT
make the call to the NICS to verify you are permitted to buy a gun.
Er, no. Form 4473 (not 4474 as previously thought) is required to be
completed before a Federal Firearms License holder (the dealer) can sell the
Code of Federal Regulations: 478.124 Firearms transaction record.
"(a) A licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer shall
not sell or otherwise dispose, temporarily or permanently, of any firearm to
any person, other than another licensee, unless the licensee records the
transaction on a firearms transaction record, Form 4473: Provided, That a
firearms transaction record, Form 4473, shall not be required to record the
disposition made of a firearm delivered to a licensee for the sole purpose
of repair or customizing when such firearm or a replacement firearm is
returned to the person from whom received."
But you ARE right - the form is not yellow. It's more of a dusky goldenrod.
Cut us some slack, though. We men know the names of about eight primary
colors. Women have more names for "tan" than the Eskimos have for "snow."
Again, Er, no. If a state CCL meets certain federal requirements, the CCL
(CHL) holder is exempt from the FBI NICS check to determine whether the
buyer is ineligible to purchase a firearm. That regulation has nought to do
with the ATF requirement that gun sales from FFL dealers be recorded on a
I don't have to register guns nor is there any licensing for ownership. There
is a license required for concealed carry, though. It's a pain and rather
expensive ($70 for five years), so it's not as good as VT, AZ, or AK. It does
have the advantage of reciprocity that VT doesn't have.
