Skip to comments.Does an NFA reg turns your residence into a search at will zone?

Seeing that the CA Fascist thug from the US House of Lords, Dianne "Brownshirt" Feinstein. is threatening law-abiding US peasants with forced National Firearm Act registration of ALL semi-automatic weapons, the question arises:
Can the BATF search your house at will if you have an NFA registered weapon?
I have seen this answered in the affirmative elsewhere.
Basically, the Fascist thug old bat wants to get rid of the 4th Amendment for gun-owning peasants, as she knifes the Second Amendment in the back.
Why buy the stuff if you're not going to use the stuff, and if you'll hand it over to the first guy who asks for it? Why'd you spend the money????
Why do you ask?
Were you planning on registering something?
It won’t pass anyway.
Let BO try some EO crap, and see how that works...
Do I look like the kind of guy who registers his Natural Rights?
Why do you ask?
People need to get their minds right before Boss Dianne finds her dirt in their holes...
“It wont pass anyway.”
Plan as if it will. Too many times we heard the famous last words, “Oh, that will never happen.”
Personally, I doubt this will come to anything, or survive its first Supreme Court test if does.
An old relative in Norway (lived through the NAZI occupation) has his old .22 single-shot rifle registered with the government. Registration in Norway has been around forever - the first thing the Germans did was go to the town’s courthouse and get the records of gun owners and take the guns and keep a watch on the owners.
My dad said he was amazed at the animals that relative’s .22 has taken: ducks and geese, deer, and even some animals on an African Safari! ;)
I doubt they would take the case which would leave it to the States. Even if they did, I highly doubt even Roberts would rule that semi-autos (handguns included) to be unlawful.
I wouldn't worry about this. Obambi doesn't have the cojones to sign an EO outlawing semi's. He may be brazen enough to sign other EO's, but he won't attempt such a complete overthrow of our system. Yes, I know liberals and incrementalism, but this just won't happen.
I'm more in favor of local "I Ain't Registering My Semi-Autos; Whaddya Gonna Do About It?" peaceable assemblage parties with a hundred or two of your closest semi-auto owning friends & acquaintances at convenient public venues - designed to make the would-be enforcers pony up with an immediate answer.
Yes, it does.
(Elsewhere, I’ve already seen an instant parody of her statements, basically substituting “negroes” for gun references.)
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein unveiled a negro control proposal that would require federally approved licensing of all black and many mixed race Americans. Feinstein said her plan is intended to keep America safe from “black criminals, blacks with mental disabilities, and black children who will become criminals.”
“Under her plan, black applicants for negro licenses would have to pay $25 and go to one of 100,000 federal police officers or to a state-certified office of negro affairs.
“The officer or state-approved official would then record the negroes personal information and license them with the Department of Health and Human Services. Applicants would be required to submit a thumb print, a photograph, their name, birthplace and address, and sign a statement swearing that the information is accurate.
“They would also have to pass a written literacy test that would pose questions about the law and the negroes legal responsibilities. The licenses would be renewable every five years and could be revoked.
“No negro or mixed race negro will be grandfathered, and if not licensed they must be turned in or be in criminal violation.”
Sort of puts what she is proposing in context, doesn’t it?
I agree 100%. That's why I didn't worry that they would pass ObamaCare over the objection of a majority of Americans. That's why even once ObamaCare passed, I trusted that the thugs in this administration would keep their promises on protecting decent Christians from being required to pay for abortion coverage. That's why I didn't worry once a clearly unconstitutional ObamaCare bill was hauled in front of Chief Justice Roberts. I knew exactly what the Constitution said, so I had no worries - Obama and Pelosi getting spanked was inevitable, wasn't it? That's why I have never worried that wedding photographers, wedding cake bakers, destination wedding bed and breakfast venue owners, and others with religious objections would never be compelled to work against their will in celebrations that offend their fundamental beliefs. This is America, a free country. That sort of thing does not happen here.
Sad but true - well said.
Back when I was into hobby rocketry a lot of the guys needed BATF “Low explosive user permit”s to store rocket motors over a certain size.
They had to agree to give up their rights in order to get said permit...BATF could search their homes and/or storage magazines at will.
I simply never went that big and that was one of the reasons.
(As an aside, Sen. Enzi of Wyoming nearly got a bill passed to get the BATF off the hobby rocketeers asses but our pal Chuckie Schumer went on the Senate floor waving around a big cardboard rocket and proceeded to rail about how we had no business doing such things, that prick bastard)
I predict the next run is on boats.
I think that the law reads that you can be required to provide your NFA weapons be available for inspection from time to time. They cannot just show up at your door and demand entrance and inspection. They must give you reasonable advance notice and may inspect ONLY the NFA items on their list. They may not inspect your other firearms nor are they allowed to snoop around.

Don’t I know it! I was practicing a George Washington Delaware thing out in the back yard where’s there’s a 3 foot wide creek. Suddenly there’s this Tsunami thing and all the hardware got swept away.
