MYTH 5: Criminals use handguns. Long guns are used by law-abiding hunters and farmers.

MYTH 9: The CFP does not save lives.

Lie 9: The CFP does more than register guns. It’s another tool that assists police in making informed decisions that contribute to community safety.

MYTH 10: The “gun registry” database has been breached over 300 times by hackers – our information isn’t safe.

Lie 10: Wrong. The CFP’s national database has never been breached by hackers. Information is safe and secure.
