Skip to comments.Big Brother's new target: Tracking of all firearms
Posted on 01/14/2009 5:48:28 AM PST by Joiseydude
U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America.
Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner's address in America.
The bill claims its purpose is "to protect the pubic against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of firearms to criminals and youth."

I used to say, "What part of 'shall not be infringed' do they NOT understand?"
But now...I am convinced that they don't give a shiite about anything the Constitution has to say. The country of our fathers is most assuredly and truly dead.
I’m all for protecting the “pubic”.
Their worldview does NOT value the Constitution for the same reason they place no value in tradition or culture.
They view themselves, and especially their elites, as being better capable of making decisions than anyone in the past ever could. Contracts, vows, and Constitutions hold less weight than an individual making decisions based on current, modern knowledge, which is inherently in larger quantity now than when the contract/vow was made.
...that’s thought provoking.
After reading this string yesterday, I plunked down $450 for another 1,000 rounds of .223 and a couple more AR clips.
I dunno. It seems like everything is spiraling out of control?

I may be behind the curve here, but where the heck do they get the power to do this? Never mind the 2nd amendment, what about expressed powers?
I'd much rather protect my pubic without government help.
I’m waiting to hear from all the Dem congressmen who were elected 2 years ago as “pro-gun” representatives.....
I was surprised to see an 0bama bumper sticker on a pickup when I was at the range a few weeks ago. It was a Sunday and the place was mobbed.
Fears of the coming Obamanation is why I held my nose and voted for McCain.(And that Palin might have steered McCain to the conservative path.)
It’s imperative that you disarm a free people before you can enslave them. This is and has always been the goal of the left. Thanks Bobby. I’ve just purchased the rest of my Walmart’s 9mm rounds. And that new 12 guage pump I’ve been putting off...you can come see it tomorrow afternoon. By the way, please hold your breath until receiving my thumb print and handgun information.
renewed last night
Requiring registration and licensing of guns already owned...
What do you all think the compliance rate will be?
This will be an issue where gunowners will have to “hang together or hang separately”.
The very definition of "Uppity".
>>These people are just BEGGING for a fight.<<
They will get their wish.
>>I dunno. It seems like everything is spiraling out of control?<<
We ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Hey, we’re all in enemy territory now.
