“Gun registration is gun confiscation.” Or so says the headline of an article published by blogger Dean Weingarten in 2000. It has been re-posted throughout the years, and has resurfaced to counter the recent demand for tougher gun laws.
Using political leverage gained from the public’s horror over recent mass shootings, liberal lawmakers, Hollywood and others have banded together to push for stricter laws many fear will lead to the shredding of the Second Amendment.
Proposed legislation introduced by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and others has produced significant backlash.
Joshua Boston, a former Marine, became famous recently for writing a poignant and polite letter to Feinstein refusing to comply with the new laws. In an interview with Fox News, Boston said that gun registration that leads to confiscation is what led to the Third Reich.
The hot-button issue seems to be Feinstein’s proposed federal gun registry. Some critics have speculated the move could start another civil war. What would you do if the legislation was passed?
Gun registration is gun confiscation (excerpt)
The holy grail of the anti self defense and anti rights special interest groups is gun registration. This is because once your gun is required to be registered, it is in effect, already confiscated. Only a little thought will reveal to you why this is so. The Government will know who has legal possession of each firearm. They will know where the firearm is stored. When physical possession of the gun is desired, they can order you to turn it in. This has happened repeatedly. The historical examples include NAZI Germany, Soviet Russia, Red China, and Cambodia. Recent examples include Kosovo, Great Britian, Australia, New York, and California. Not having possession of the firearm registered to you can be grounds for criminal action. If you have reported the gun stolen, and it is then found in your possession, you can be charged with obstruction of justice.
It is a truism that once all guns are required to be registered, the only people who will legally possess guns will be those who have registered them. If you choose to follow the course of civil disobedience, and not register your firearms, mere possession of an unregistered gun can put you at grave legal risk.
