Pending Bill IS a Federal Gun Registry

The Senate will soon take up consideration of Legislation that is being called "Universal Background Check" legislation.

It is, in fact; the introduction of a Federal Registry for firearms. 

As has become common, the malicious nature of the legislation is cloaked in seemingly innocent language. In this case:


(a) In General- Section 922 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end--

‘(aa) It shall be unlawful for any person who lawfully possesses or owns a firearm that has been shipped or transported in, or has been possessed in or affecting, interstate or foreign commerce, to fail to report the theft or loss of the firearm, within 24 hours after the person discovers the theft or loss, to the Attorney General and to the appropriate local authorities.’.

It is clearly impossible to enforce such a clause without a "Registration" of guns and their registered owners.  As has also become common, such a "Registry" will be mandated by a "rule" rather than a law. This will be done through the which ever agency President Obama wishes to designate as the enforcement arm of this law. 

For those who find nothing wrong with a Federal Gun Registry, understand that such a "Registry" is always the first step toward confiscation.

For those who find no problem with confiscation, understand that it is always the first step toward tyranny. Tyranny which will eventually include summary execution of dissidents.

No, not today. Probably not even in our lifetime.  The founders were remarkable in their ability to attempt to devise a political "system" that place limitations on government, such that it not require that voters always chose correctly. This seems to be lost on much of the population. It seems a combination of historical ignorance and wiling naivety has created a voting class incapable of thinking beyond the present.

So for those who find no problem with the confiscation of fire arms; here's to your future.....
