Gun Registration Amnesty a Dismal Failure ^ | 11/16/09 | Sasparilla

The Philippine government is experiencing the same kind of compliance with their Gun Registration Amnesty as New Jersey had with their “assault weapon” turn in program of the 1990’s. It was virtually ignored too. It is being ignored by thousands.

Over 119,129 “loose” firearms have been registered in the Philipines gun registration amnesty. If a firearm isn’t registered with the Philippine police, it is considered “loose.”

The police director general wants all owners of “loose” firearms be classified as a member of a "terrorist group." The Bradys haven't even come up with that one...yet. They would love to have everyone having an "unregistered" firearm be branded as a terrorist here in the U.S.

“Police action” will begin against registration scofflaws and holders of those “loose” firearms when the amnesty period ends. The National Police will offer a reward for people who “help police” recover “loose” firearms. It’s a national snitch program like Obama's Whitehouse healthcare snitch website tried to be.

Over a thousand gun owners have chosen not to register their firearms arms under the government’s Final and General Firearms Amnesty in the Philippine Islands in just one small city, despite what the Government says was ample time to register them.

Police estimate that only 2,147 of the 3,800 unregistered guns in a typical city Philippine city, Cagayan de Oro City, were registered. Some 8,000 guns were registered in the area around the city. The acting city police commissioner was disappointed by the low registration. Police want the national Congress to pass tougher legislation against unregistered guns, which if the lack of the current registration is any indication, tougher laws will be ignored too.

The registration of firearms. Then the jack-booted thugs will know which doors to kick in during arms “turn-in” procedures. Charming. Somehow I don’t think even Hussein will try that here. He would very rapidly run out of volunteers to kick down doors! BANG!
