    So, who was this weapon registered to? If it was not reported stolen, does that person get charged with anything? If it was reported stolen, I don't see any charges listed above related to that.

    When a person "not to possess firearms" has firearms and there is no report of the firearms being stolen, are the registered owners being charged at all?
