Skip to comments.MILLER: Gun re-registration begins in D.C., may lead to arrest and confiscation
Posted on 01/03/2014 10:30:37 AM PST by hughesm1
For the first time in the United States, a citizen who has legally registered a gun will have to submit to a renewal process. The consequences of not knowing about this new law or missing the specific 60-day window are dire.
Starting on Jan. 2, every single D.C. resident who has registered a firearm since 1976 must go to police headquarters to pay a $48 fee and be photographed and fingerprinted.
The Metropolitan Police Department estimates there are at least 30,000 registered gun owners.
If the registrant does not go to the police station within three months after a set time frame, the registration is revoked...

No different from a Poll tax.
Shouldn’t cost money to exercise a Right.
The plan is to gradually raise the price until you can’t afford it. This is a tax. Is it a legal tax on the second amendment? Can you tax free speech? If not, then you can’t tax gun ownership either.
Another trick that will eventually be overturned, but in the meanwhile provide a leg tingle for the Left.
Agreed, how is this possibly not an infringement.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Offenders will be rounded up and put into train cars and taken where their kind won't be a danger to everyone else.
finally, all the gang members will now have to legally register their guns.
The difference is that “voting” is a priviledge borne from citizenship. Legislation protects that priviledge (as you say, it does not cost money).
2A-RTK&BA is a God-given right that cannot be altered by any governing body. Legislation cannot change the “right”.
Legislation CAN change the priviledge, not the right.
Only law-abiding citizens are that foolish...when your God given rights...let alone the mention of God...becomes a crime, embrace your inner criminal.
I believe Christians recall the cryptic advice “ be as harmless as doves but wise as serpents “
Never “Register” ANY FIREARM!!
(Class III exemption, due to existing law)
If you register your weapon, it will be taken from you by the very people you need to be defended from.
What will you Freepers do when your state implements this?
” - - - That citizen is then in possession of an unregistered firearm, which is a felony that carries a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and a year in jail. - - - “
Hmmmmmm - - - - ?
Now it is a felony to abide by the US Constitution?
Noted US Constitution Expert Larry The Cable Guy has been stating for years that Americans have the Right To Bare Arms.
If Larry says it, it must be right, I don’t care who you are!

“Gun re-registration begins in D.C., may lead to arrest and confiscation”
Shouldn’t they replace “may lead to arrest and” to “for future confiscation”?
Conn, DC, NY, it’s coming to Red States soon.
But the fact it is happening in DC makes it a bit more entertaining since DC is home to a lot of politicians and law-enforcement types.
This is Obamacare.
Every single day I see more and more deliberate, incremental erosion of our precious rights. I can’t believe it’s happening so fast. Exponential erosion. D.C. residents with firearms would be well-advised to simply leave. Now.
Aside: Twenty-five-years ago I moved out of D.C. to Alexandria Virginia for one reason: the hostile, brain-damaging bureaucratic DMV maze in which I refused to waste my any more of my time, just trying to get a D.C. drivers license. No criminal, driving or insurance issues — just a law-abiding, rational, pleasant legal resident trying to get a simple drivers license.
(Suburban Virginia DMV was only moderately better.)
Further aside: Now in Tennessee and much happier, thank you.
Which side will you be on when the shooting begins?
I don't see Texas doing this, but if they did, I wouldn't register my weapons and if arrested and put in jail, I get free food and free medical care and hours to watch TV and plenty of time to read and maybe have my own computer in the cell with me and I don't have to fill out paperwork for any agency such as the IRS every year.
Obviously not intended for lawbreakers (stating the obvious).
Great post, I couldn’t agree more!!
Move, or die fighting.
What will YOU do, are you not a FReeper?
Call your lawyer! This is not legal....not in America; maybe Nigeria or parts of Russia, Cuba, but not here...Become Constitution savvy...know your rights. The Communists have come to take you and your rights away ta da...think I am kidding?
Obviously this does not intend to make violent criminals register their guns. This is aimed exclusively at honest, law-abiding non-violent citizens and is designed to declare them criminals and fine or sentence them.
Explain the “Class III exemption” and tell D.C. folks how your state got rid of the oppressing gun control nits.
registration = confiscation
“Atlas Shrugged” Now non-fiction....
***That citizen is then in possession of an unregistered firearm, which is a felony***
If they are now felons, they are not required to register their firearms.
Haynes vs US. 1968.
“The original Haynes decision continues to block state prosecutions of criminals who fail to register guns as required by various state law gun registration schemes”.
And that is why obamacare requires docs to ask about firearm ownership AND keep digital records in a federal database.
Just saying’....it’s too late to avoid registering your Class III weapons.
Ya, we booted 3 gun grabbers in 2013 after they pushed through anti-2a legislation.
Where does O’care “require” docs to ask about guns?
Page 976, third paragraph. < /sarc >
And the answer should be "Try breaking into my house some night and you'll find out, doc."
When you find out, go to the top of the chain of command. Make sure all of your affairs are in order...
Find them, kill them, and make sure you leave a message. Like the "Columbia Neck Tie." Also, you will have to terminate their entire family and friends. I'm sorry, but it is coming to this. Do not be faint of heart.
This will give you time to adjust the order of battle. You will know then that it is time to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies.
Be advised, the LEO, U.S. government, WILL KILL YOU. Orders, don't you know. Make no mistake about it.
“If this kind of in your face submission requirement continues, people will start to root for the gang members in any shoot out with collection officials.”
I hate to say this, because there is a limit to how conspiratorial you can be without people thinking you are a crackpot, but I dont think the government is going to go after the homeboys guns.
I mean, we know their intention is to disarm law abiding patriots, is there any question on that. they know who and where the gangs are and basically will leave them alone.
they want real americans scared and unarmed.
Why..the governments side of course............................../s
Like the mention of the 2nd amendment tax.
Why isn’t providing ID to exercise one’s right not a burden as it is when voting?
“No different from a Poll tax.”
See my tagline
I hope these links post correctly:
This aspect of Obamacare will certainly be ignored
Opening salvo to have Obamacare information reported to the NICS in violation of HIPPA laws
And now we have Holder basically gutting HIPAA laws to protect
I should have not used the word “require” but by the end of the year I do predict Obamacare will be used for a back door registration. Or, as Obama said, “under the radar.”
At least 200 Million, of the over 300 Million privately owned firearms in this country are not “registered” with any government agency.
If he’s stupid enough to attempt to demand “registration”, he will learn the meaning of “Tea Party”.
I have no doubt the NICS catalogs and records every single background check in violation of the law. Private transfers are the closest to free you can get.
