Ex-RNC Chair Michael Steele: I Donít Understand The Fear Of Gun Registration
tpm ^ | 4/9/2013 | DAVID TAINTOR

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on Tuesday said he doesn't understand why gun owners fear the registration of their firearms.

"I don't get the fear of registration," Steele said on MSNBC. "I don't get the, the concern about trafficking. Are we saying that we want criminals to, you know, make … back-alley sales out of the trunks of their cars?"

Steele was part of a panel on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown," during which former Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) said that responsible gun owners insure their guns, which means they're registered. "I mean, I don't understand," she said.

MSNBC host Chuck Todd agreed with Steele. "It feels like we're protecting the rights of the paranoid about government, rather than, sort of, the reasonable," he said.

As TPM has reported, the National Rifle Association has long warned that expanding background checks would lead to a national gun registry.

"responsible gun owners insure their guns"

Against what? Gov't confiscation?

Guns are still inexpensive enough that self insurance is very practical.

Unless we rid ourselves of RINO’s, we will never win. These people are no better than those murdering, lying, cheating, theiving, scheming, cowardly, and arrogant Dems. I am tempted to curse them to hell, but their doing a fine job of that all on their own.

I don’t understand why people insist on supporting these idiots and thus destroying the country by continuing to support them.

Can someone explain why this is better than what Dems do? Or “different”?

So let’s say a guy is 63 years old or so and has been buying guns when he could afford them since he was 21. His understanding is that, in the seventies, eighties and into the nineties, the law didn’t keep records long and after a few months, those purchases became somewhat invisible.

This guys curiosity is, at what point did purchases become permanently recorded?
