Big Bro won't care, he'll just lock you up, and you'll snitch on a dozen other gun owners.

Is that translation accurate?
Yes, I believe that is the point of all this. The scenerio of a tragic boating accident was never intended as a serious thing. Just some shooter humor, which it seems the OP thinks is overused. Perhaps this is the case, however, there is some humor in it.

I lost all my boats in a tragic firearms accident.

In most states, a simple "I sold them to someone who can legally own firearms" is a far more plausible explanation than "oh yeah, I had one of those extremely common "tragic boating accidents" like every other gun owner apparently had."

Or maybe I'm just being a pain.
I'd tell people I sold my stuff to a bunch of Mexicans.
