National Gun Registration Bill Proposed by Senate Democrats

Senate Bill 649 is more than a Universal Background Check law. Its a national firearms registration mandate.  The left despises the Second Amendment but they dont have the guts to tell the truth.  Progressives are immoral liars who have controlled education and media for decades. 

Progressives not guns, not the NRA, not law abiding citizens are responsible for mass murders that occur in GUN FREE ZONES. 

Progressives have controlled education and media for fifty years.  Progressives sowed the seeds of violence, self entitlement and irresponsibility not the NRA or responsible gun owners. 

The NRA and law abiding concealed handgun carriers are responsible for an overall reduction in violent crime.  Wake up and push back against the liberal fascists who seek to fundamentally and illegally change America.

The gun banners are not just hoplophobes and zealots.  They are anti-American subversives who seek to fundamentally change America and destroy our Constitutional Republic.  Statism through tyranny is their end game.  Disarming law abiding citizens is crucial to their success.

Bill Synopsis

Here is the bill synopsis, emphasis added:

To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale, and for other purposes.

And what, pray tell, are those “other purposes”?

Background Checks and Registration

In typical fashion, there’s quite a bit in this bill and it’s not exactly straightforward, but what most concerns me are the sections pertaining to background checks and registration.

Background checks will be required for nearly every firearm transfer with a few exclusions. This part is fairly straightforward, on the surface doesn’t seem too bad. However, once you dig a little deeper, you find the real problem, and that’s registration.

Section 122 Firearms Transfers, which details how transfers would be regulated, has this little gem, emphasis added:

(B) Regulations promulgated under this paragraph…(ii) shall include a provision requiring a record of transaction of any transfer that occurred between an unlicensed transferor and unlicensed transferee accordance with paragraph (1).

If you think that this bill isn’t registration, you’re not paying attention or youre a subversive. Even though Senators Paul and Cruz have promised to filibuster this bill, we can’t rely on that alone. Contact your Senators today and tell them to oppose S. 649.

We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed;

Patriot Senators Vow to Stop Unconstitutional National Firearms Registration

Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee who provided the most support for the filibuster of the drone program intend to use less dramatic means to block Senate gun control legislation.  The White House is playing the phony sensitivity card to further their liberal fascist gun control agenda.

Let me make it clear; there is NOTHING in this proposed Progressive gun legislation that would have done ANYTHING to stop Newtown or Aurora. Nor will anything in the law stop future criminals and crazies intent on mass shootings.

These gun control measure are intended to curtail legal gun ownership and restrict the Second Amendment civil rights of law abiding citizens.  It takes a legally armed good guy to stop an illegally armed bad guy. PERIOD

The proposals Obama is calling for Congress to pass would serve to reduce the constitutionally protected rights of law-abiding citizens while having little or no effect on violent crime.  In a press release Senator Lee said,  It is deeply unfortunate that he continues to use the tragedy at Newtown as a backdrop for pushing legislation that would have done nothing to prevent that horrible crime. Along with my colleagues Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas, I have informed the Majority Leader that we will exercise our procedural right to require a 60-vote threshold in order to bring any of the presidents proposals to the floor.

“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,” the lawmakers wrote  to Senate Majority Harry Reid, D-Nev., in a letter on Friday.

The White House criticized the Republican senators’ decision. “To tell the families of those who lost their children to gun violence, that votes like this might be filibustered, I don’t think that would be welcome news.”

Senator Cruz raised the specter of a national gun registry in a statement explaining his move. “The Democrats’ proposed legislation would require universal background checks for private sales between law-abiding citizens, which according to DOJ would be effective only if accompanied by a national gun registry,” he said. “This raises serious constitutional issues, and would divert resources from prosecuting felons and fugitives who try to illegally purchase guns.”

Senator Lee refuses to let the left usurp civil rights easily. “Bills that potentially violate Americans’ constitutional rights should at least pass with a bipartisan majority and not be imposed by the majority alone,” communications director Brian Phillips told The Washington Examiner. “That’s why we have these rules in the Senate.”

By requiring a 60-vote threshold to end the debate, the Republican Senators can increase pressure on red-state Democrats who face re-election in 2014. Dirty Harry Reid has been trying to protect them from tough votes on gun control by separating the assault weapons ban from the broader gun package, which allows some lawmakers to vote for the full bill but against the ban. But if the red-state Democrats are needed to overcome the opposition posed by Paul, Lee, and Cruz, they might have to take the kind of vote that could damage them in 2014.

Senators who vote against the interests and principles of the Constitution and their constituents must be held accountable. The proposed legislation would require individuals to keep private records of gun sales they make, FOREVER.  This creates a national gun registry, which is contrary to current federal law and a violation of Second Amendment civil rights.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., continue to work on reaching a compromise, but they have yet to produce a bill both sides can agree on. 

Ranking Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is working on an alternative bill.  The bill is still being written, and it is an alternative to reduce gun violence, says a spokesman in Grassleys office. Sen. Grassley wants to address gun violence in a manner that does not violate the constitution, which is why he is working on a separate bill.
