Skip to comments.Pelosi 'We want them registered'
Posted on 04/12/2009 8:27:30 PM PDT by JohnRLott
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, announced last week that she wants to register guns. Her next move will be to try to confiscate them.
The speaker picked a television show with a viewership of 4.6 million to float the Democrats' coming gun-control push. Questioned on ABC's "Good Morning America" about the prospect of new gun-control laws now that "it's a Democratic president, a Democratic House," she responded, "We don't want to take their guns away. We want them registered."
Politicians and bureaucrats routinely claim that registration helps solve crimes. If a registered gun is used in a crime and left at the crime scene, registration supposedly lets the police trace the gun back to the criminal. Though this turn of events might work on fictional TV crime shows, it virtually never occurs in real life. Criminals' guns are rarely left at crime scenes. When guns are left behind, it usually is because a crook has been seriously injured or killed and the police are poised to catch him anyway. . . . .

“...shall not be infringed...”
I just bought a gun this week. I believe it was registered. My name was taken down and the serial number for the gun, then the guy at Cabela’s called in for the background check. Isn’t that “registration”? What more does she want?
I won’t comply! Problem solved!
Get ready for a fight folks.
This is the Beeotch that waved Eric Holder off of this shizznit. Just 2 months back she didnt want a thing to do with it.
Next Month look for Barama to reluctantly ask for restrictions.
The Gubmint is playing good cop bad cop and our rights are at risk
That is NOT registration.
They dont call in the serial # and all thay say is John Doe bought “handgun” or long gun” only the FFL has details of the transaction.
Still, that is to close to registration as the Feds can demand records
“What more does she want?”
Where shall I begin...
My 18 years of law enforcement experience qualifies me to comment the following on the above statement:
That by itself is not necessarily registration unless you live in a state that requires handgun registration like CA. Everybody who buys from dearlers (FFL's) go thru background checks and the fed 4473 form.
The paper record remains with the FFL. Not sure what happens to these records if the FFL closes shop.
It is illegal, I believe, for the federales to keep any “instant check” records beyond a short time period. But I would be VERY surprised if they actually destroyed the records as required by law.
Thank the NRA for the Brady instant check law, which is a defacto registration system.
What does this old hag want? She lives in California and should know that all guns in California are required to be registered. At least, that’s what the Sheriff’s Dept. told me.
Step 1. Registration
Step 2. Confiscation
She’s not called Nazi Pelosi for nothing. Someone needs to tell the ditzy, dumbass broad that you can shoot someone with a registered gun just as easy as you can with an unregistered gun. Of course, a moron wouldn’t know that.
step 3 revolution and hanging of gun grappers
Well the registration in CA is working so well at keeping guns out of the hands of criminals that she wants it applied to all of us.
Call her Highness tomorrow and ask when she was made Queen and by whom.
Pelousy is a one dangerous politician!
Register firearms? I don’t think so...
Time for more messages to my elected representatives.
She has been queen for some time. She was 3rd in line to the presidency while GWB was in office. Now she rules the senate and the house.
I bet she digs them claws into Obamas..****’s
Call her Highnendess tomorrow...
