    Re: Pending Legislation for Federal Licensing and Registration of Guns

    Its an ineffective means of gun control. Criminals primarily receive guns from a "straw purchase" in which a person with a clean record purchases a firearm (often a girlfriend or family member) and gives it to a criminal, or from corrupt dealer who owns a federal firearms distributor license. This bill does little to combat either of those methods. Ultimately I doubt this will have any significant impact on criminals obtaining firearms.

    So, lets see..
    -You need to have a license to own a handgun or semi-automatic fiream that can take a detachable magazine;

    -You have to register the purchase of new guns of that sort;

    -You have to have a training course to get the license, and

    -Your current guns are not grandfathered from the licensing requirement.


    And the Obamanista say that the pro-gun side is "paranoid".
    I remember when I made the "Are the anti-2nd amendment people lying when they say that there is nothing to worry?" thread in November. Some of the anti-2nd amendment nuts saying Oh they wouldn't try anything they got better **** to do".

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It is none of the government's damn business what rights we exercise, nor is their place to force us to register something we have a right too.

    Damned straight. The thing I fear a lot of people are starting to forget is that rights do not require permission. Yet, that's exactly what this bill is all about, permission from the government to exercise your right to keep and bear arms. This bill is the reason why we are to have guns, why we are to be diligent against government treason and tyranny. By drafting this bill, they have proved my side correct.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
