    Answered . The answer largely in part depends on where you live, and I'm also assuming you mean a F.O.I.D card (Firearms Owners Identification), opposed to a "void card." Many municipalities have unique firearms registration requirements that often require payment of a fee, completion of an application, along with fingerprinting and a criminal background check to show you can legally possess the firearm and properly register it.
