National German gun registry on target for launch
The German interior minister has said a countrywide database of all legal gun owners is set for launch on January 1. Hans-Peter Friedrich predicted a "considerable increase in security" as a result.
The German government plans to launch its complete registry of legal gun owners at the beginning of next year, two years ahead of a deadline set by the EU.
As with many German authorities, those responsible for weapons licensing and tracking operated on a local basis - with a total of 551 authorities around the country. Under new EU laws, all member countries are obliged to compile a centralized register.
There are an estimated 6 million licensed firearms in Germany.
Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich told reporters in Berlin that the database would provide "a very concrete contribution towards improving public safety." Thanks to the information, he said; police would be able to check "who owns which weapons legally, across the entire country," perhaps more quickly than in the past.

National German gun registry on target for launch
Registration. Confiscation. Subjugation. Annihilation.
Don’t these people remember Hitler?

Safer? In what way exactly?
Didn’t Germans do a gun registration once before and it didn’t work out well?
Way to go Deutschland!
Pave the way for a new Hitler.
Germany to keep national record of weapons
Submitted by admin4 on 20 November 2012 - 6:33pm
Berlin : The German government is all set to maintain a centralised weapons’ register from next year onwards to enable authorities access information regarding weapons and their owners with the help of a central national database.
This will make it possible for police to establish whether weapons are present at the locations to which they have been deployed such as whether or not a gun has been registered in a house reported for domestic violence.
The move comes nearly four years after the tragedy of the Winnenden school shooting in Baden-Württemberg state which left 16 people dead, DAPD news agency reported.
According to the country’s federal Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich (Christian Social Union - CSU), the country’ new national weapons register is set to be launched Jan 1, 2013
The new register thereby makes a “considerable contribution to improving national security in Germany”, he said.
According to president of the federal criminal police office, Jorg Ziercke, the introduction of the register is the fulfilment of a long-standing request made by German security authorities for a central database.
At times it took months to get a response from local registration office, Ziercke said, adding that the integrated electronic database would make investigations considerably faster and easier.
I guess most people don’t bother reading the dates on articles.
UN Small Arms Treaty Means Big Changes for our Constitution
By Mr. Curmudgeon:
Flush with a new sense of purpose after his re-election victory, President Obama signaled his administrations support for the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. What follows are two of the treatys provisions:
Each State Party shall take the appropriate measures, within national laws and regulations, to control brokering taking place under its jurisdiction for conventional arms within the scope of this Treaty.
Each State Party shall maintain records in accordance with its national laws and regulations of the items referred to such records may contain: quantity, value, model/type, authorized arms transfers, arms actually transferred and end-users as appropriate. Records shall be kept for a minimum of ten years, or consistent with other international commitments applicable to the State Party.
That means every firearm, its various parts and ammunition will be regulated. And you, the end-user, will earn the privilege of having your name recorded in an international registry.
That cant happen here, you say, The Supreme Courts 2010 ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller denies the feds, the states and local authorities the power to restrict my right to bear arms.
If you believe so, you are dead wrong.
Most Americans believe the only way the United States Constitution can be revised is when Congress passes an amendment for the states to ratify. However, the president and Senate can do just that by signing and ratifying an international treaty. And just in case you have forgotten, Fast and Furious Democrats control the White House and Senate.
In 1920, the Supreme Courts ruling in Missouri vs. Holland said the Constitutions treaty-making provision (the Supremacy Clause) means that international agreements entered into by the United States are the supreme law of the land. The issue in the case concerned the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. The U.S.-British agreement limited the hunting of certain endangered birds. The State of Missouri contested the treaty for violating their 10th Amendment states rights.
“I guess most people dont bother reading the dates on articles.”
Huh? What are you referring to?
Germany and Illinois are not so different
For whom, Hans? Maybe for you tyrannical bastards, but definitely not for people who deserve it and can only get it by holding on to their God-given right of self defense.
It would take 2/3 of the Senate to pass this treaty.
I don’t think 67 Senators will be willing to tattoo “BENEDICT ARNOLD QUISLING TRAITOR” on their faces.
Not in a nation with tens of millions of scoped rifles.
The article was published on 11/19/2012, no?
I don’t think it’s the German people, just like it’s not most of us here (voter fraud aside). It’s always the globalists telling us what the agenda will be.
I pray that you are correct.
