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...
That discussion is completely irrelevant and immaterial.
I'd like Pelosi to point to the Article and Section of the US Constitution which authorizes Congress to legally mandate the registration of privately owned firearms.
Until she can do that, she can go straight to Hell.
I will not comply. Period.
Pelosi should register herself as the socialist that she is.
Nancy, in a word, no. Wait, that’s too simple. H*LL NO!
Pelosi, stuff it.
Only three weeks ago, in my state, Michigan, I had to get a pistol purchase permit.
Then, you purchase the firearm, and there are four copies
of the purchase.
One stays with the seller, I get one, and the other two go
to the County Sheriff and the State.
I can’t think of what else they could do to make you
Now rifles, etc. are another thing, for now.
I have a pretty cool one on order.
Also, at one of the local gun dealers, they have a bad-ass
.50 cal for $3600.00.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a thousand acre ranch in Texas to try it out.
Is that you, Ted?
I’m on my way!
Any person that has lost the right to own firearms can not be prosecuted for not registering any firearm in their possession.
Haynes v. U.S. (1968)
You know what is odd?
I learned to shoot in Ca and shot way more in Ca with less restriction than here in Tx Now
They are putting us in a stranglehold of (deceptive) good intention
That's right. There are a lot of dems who won't get re-elected if they vote for this kind of crap. This is just posturing by Nazi Pelosi.
We’ll get BBQ L0L
We can tell Pelosi to put it to the task....while she is flying overhead on her broom, someone can take a pot shot at her. Then when she and her broom fall to the ground, then we can all look for the gun!
Come register them, then, from our cold dead hands
Yeah, every morning I open my computer to see somebody's been shot- usually more than one somebody.
More troubling than this notion of registration is the fact that an elected official could get the 2nd ammendment so wrong.
We need a law passed pronto that says: "If you back legislation or promote a policy that contradicts our Bill of Rights and Constitution in any way, and do so knowingly, you shall be immediately relieved of duty as a representative or senator and stripped of any salary and benefits that might accrue to active service in government.
I am amazed she is doing it! She knows it is a 3rd rail.
I still think it is good cop bad cop and Obama will reluctantly submit to the idea
As Cuban Colonel Bella said to his aide in "Red Dawn," "Obtain form 4473. These will show lists of private ownership."
Pelosi lives in a TV CSI world ....
But, if the gun used in the commission of a crime has been stolen, the criminal can be let go and the owner of the gun can be prosecuted.
So, you see, it's a win-win situation. For DemocRATS.
Very interesting expert opinion...
If Nancy wants my weapons, she can come to my front door and collect them in person.
I like your “about” profile, Mylife.
If I ever get down to your neighborhood the BBQ and Brews and are on me.
Here’s another reason that we need Congress back.
Gimme a shout
What restrictions are you talking about in Texas???
Remember when the Brady bill passed and the demonrats lost their butts in the 94 election.
History is about to repeat itself.
Every one should call the democrat dummys and encourage them to commit gun control suicide.
