    President Barack Obama doesnt expect hell suddenly just vanish once Donald Trump takes office on Jan. 20. He also doesnt expect to keep quiet if his successors administration impedes on the core values of the United States. Remarking on Trumps proposed ban on Muslims, Obama on Mondays The Daily Show told Trevor Noah that he will have to say something if Trump follows through on his campaign promise, or insists on a registry of all Muslims currently living the United States. If I thought a Muslim registry was being set up that violates the Constitution, violates who we are, and...

    National Review ^ | 11/22/16 | Rich Lowry
    The first thing to know about Donald Trumps alleged proposal for a Muslim registry is that it isnt a Muslim registry... The source of the fracas is a comment from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Trump immigration adviser....Kobach noted that the administration might reinstate a Bush-era program tracking visitors to the U.S. from countries with active terrorist threats... it collected fingerprints and photographs when visitors from the select countries arrived and required them to check in periodically to confirm that they were abiding by the terms of their visas. It also required that certain individuals from these countries...

    President-elect Donald Trump is not proposing a registry based on a religion, his incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday, adding that people from countries posing terrorism concerns would be temporarily barred from entry into the U.S. until a better vetting system is put in place. Asked on NBCs Meet the Press whether he could equivocally rule out a registry for Muslims, Priebus replied, Look I'm not going to rule out anything, but I wouldnt were not going to have a registry based on a religion. He continued that there are some people, certainly not all people, who...
  • Trump surrogate on registry for Muslim immigrants: We did it in World War II with the Japanese

    The strangest thing about this is that Carl Higbie mentions a key distinction between the two proposals early on in the clip below, before he brings up the Japanese example. The registry involves immigrants, and immigrants don’t get all of the same constitutional protections that citizens do. (Another key distinction: It’s, er, a registry, not an internment camp.) The Japanese interned during World War II were citizens; Trump’s registry would apply to non-citizens entering the United States from terror hot spots abroad. Why Higbie’s reaching for the former to explain the latter, especially when Team Trump has been at...

    An Italian senator presented a pizza makers bill Tuesday, which aims to create a professional registry of all Italian pizza chefs. If successful, the bill will establish a nationally regulated pizza-making qualification, which will be recognized in all European countries. The proposals would force aspiring pizzaioli to complete a 120-hour course made up of 20 hours of food science, 20 hours of pizza-making workshops, 30 hours of food hygiene and 40 hours of foreign languages. [] According to the Forza Italia senator who presented the bill, Bartolomeo Amidei, the registry will protect the countrys culinary traditions and stop consumers from...

    While certain Republican presidential candidates have drawn the ire of reporters and evoked comparisons to the Holocaust for daring to discuss a national registry for Muslims, approximately one out of four Democrats support forcing Jews and Christians to register with the government. A recent YouGov poll asked 1,000 individuals if they would support a national registry requiring members of various groups to provide the government with their home addresses. The poll found 27 percent of self-identified Democrats either “strongly support” (18 percent) or “somewhat support“ (9 percent) a national registry for Jews. Democratic support for a national registry for Jews...

    The Supreme Court has ruled the federal government is allowed to destroy the long-gun registry data pertaining to Quebec, so the province is going to spend tens of millions of dollars to create its own from scratch. Quebec Public Security Minister Lise Theriault reacted with dismay on Friday to the Supreme Court's decision that the federal government can flush the data it has on long gun owners in the province. She says Quebec had no choice but to create its own database to keep track of weapons.

    With just a point and a click, you can browse a face book of felons, a new government website that will warn of the danger these criminals pose to society.Only these are not the faces of sex offenders and serial killers. These criminals are mortgage schemers and inside traders, most likely armed with nothing more than an M.B.A. or a law degree.Their faces will soon appear online courtesy of the Utah Legislature, which on Wednesday approved a measure to build the nations first white-collar offender registry, appending a scarlet letter of sorts on the states financial felons. The registry ...

    ACTION: Contact your Senators. Ask them to oppose Harry Reid's new push for universal gun registration.Like a vampire who can't stop sucking the blood of horrific tragedies, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid is once again pushing to suck political gain from the pain of others.Speaking on the floor of the Senate in the wake of the shooting of three people in Las Vegas, Reid said that the "American people are depending" on the Senate to pass universal gun registry to, supposedly, keep guns out of the hands of people like the Las Vegas killers. After the Troutdale, Oregon, shooting in...

    By the time he was arrested for sexually assaulting two siblings, 15-year-old J.B. had been molested by his alcoholic father and subjected to 25 moves among his birth, foster and adoptive families. He had also suffered from untreated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and depression. Though tried in juvenile court, with its focus on privacy and rehabilitation, he was later required by a 2012 Pennsylvania law to register as a sex offenderbranded a long-term danger to society, with no way off the list for at least 25 years. Juvenile law advocates campaigning against such automatic registries argue that they undermine the...

    There are two things I want most to know about the incident that has become known as the High River Gun Grab: Who ordered it? And, how did police know what houses to go into to find guns? I know there are other questions about why Mounties seized guns in the abandoned Alberta town of High River last month during the disastrous spring flooding there, such as under what legal authority did the RCMP "take possession of firearms" (the force's spin-doctored term for seizing) and what did the Alberta provincial government know about the seizure? Did Alberta Justice Minister Jonathan...
  • Canada Moves to Eliminate Gun Registry

    As the Obama administration pushes for stronger gun laws in the United States, Canada is moving toward entirely eliminating its controversial gun registry program. Many critics have noted that gun registries place additional burdens on honest citizens looking to own firearms, while opening them up to politically motivated targeting of the kind recently revealed in the United States when the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) admitted it had been targeting conservatives for extra scrutiny...

    One of the strange things about North Carolina (and there are many) is that Durham County has a firearm registry. It’s banned everywhere else in the state, but the legislature authorized Durham to register firearms. I don’t know if anyone actually registers, but legally  you’re supposed to. Kind of like legally you’re suppose to come to a complete stop at the stop sign, but frequently you don’t. Now a Democrat NC Senator has manged to pass a bill through the House that repeals that registry, ending the only firearm registry in North Carolina. A bill put forward by Sen. Mike Woodard,...

    As a prelude to writing these few paragraphs, I went to a Bing search engine and typed in "registry guns". In an instant -- at most one second -- I was told there were over 12 million hits. I was then invited by "Bing" to sort those based on time. Did I prefer all of them, those within the last 24 hours, those within the last week, or only those within the last month. I chose "24 hours" and again, within an instant, I had a list with 227,000 results. So, this raises the simple question of an unofficial gun...

    Remember when the Harper government killed the long gun registry earlier this year, and received tonnes of criticism? Well, theyre trying to fix their wrongs by developing a new rule which will place serial numbers on long guns for tracking. The regulation, which begins on Dec. 1, will make it possible for police to track guns, which will in turn contribute to public safety, a government backgrounder explained to CBC News. They said the reasoning behind the regulation is to contribute to public safety, by facilitating law enforcement investigations when the markings can be linked to information on the last...

    President Obamas bizarre marriage-theme fund-raising scheme where he asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests in lieu of wedding gifts has been a total flop. The desperate initiative, dubbed the Event Registry, is being mocked by event planners and couples and shows how desperate the Obama campaign is to keep up with GOP contender Mitt Romneys fund-raising. Campaign officials launched the initiative in late June, the same month Obama raised just $71 million compared to Romneys $100 million. So far, the Event Registry has been all but ignored on social-media sites even though Facebook,...

    Shooters up North celebrated a rare gun-rights victory in April, when the Canadian federal government finally euthanized its expensive and useless Long Gun Registry. The celebrations were short, however. Eager to appease suburban voters and swinging liberals, Ottowa promptly moved to ban body armour. Then PM Stephen Harpers Conservative party has quietly announced that all Canadian gun owners will have to start paying a $60 fee to renew their firearm licenses. It gets better: owners of handguns and other restricted firearms (ooh, that sounds evil, doesnt it?) have to fork over $80 . . . These fees have actually been...

    I hold in my hand a very important piece of paper dated at Welland, July 15, 1942 signed by a corporal in the local police force. This piece of paper gave Don Augustine permission to lend two shotguns to Frank Templain for the purpose of hunting. As the heading on the top of the form explained: INDIVIDUAL PERMIT TO SELL, LEND, BARTER, TRANSFER-POSSESSION OR PURCHASE A RIFLE OR SHOTGUN. This form is an example from the original long gun registry that I showed to Liberal organizers when they were promoting the second long gun registry for all Canadians. My point...

    The federal government will not go ahead with a proposed rule requiring ammunition to be kept locked up, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said Thursday. At present, guns must be locked, but not ammunition. The proposed regulations - to do with storage of explosives - would have required all gun owners to install a locking box or safe in their homes. National Firearms Association president Blair Hagen said gun owners are "very gratified" to hear Toews' pledge, and feel reassured the sweeping regulatory changes will not proceed as published. "After they were published in the Canada Gazette there was a...
