One Absurdity of Gun Registration: Criminals Are Exempt
[link to www.survivalblog.com]

The mass media is still all atwitter with talk of "closing the gun show loophole" and "universal background checks." These phrases are tossed about without concern to their true intent: a de facto system of gun registration in these United States. I am dead set against any form of registration, since the history of the 20th Century showed countless times that registration leads to eventual confiscation.

There is one other inherent problem with gun registration schemes that is often ignored: that is that it only applies to law-abiding citizens. By virtue of established case law and cemented with an 8-1 Supreme Court decision, criminals are exempt from gun registration because it would violate their Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination. Second Amendment expert Clayton Cramer explains it all in a fine essay titled: The Fifth Amendment, Self-Incrimination, and Gun Registration.

Could it be that the Dept of Justice is aware of this and that is why they don't bother to try to disarm criminals?

For sure, check with an attorney before depending on this to keep you out of jail if you have a prior conviction but I couldn't find anything that said it had been reversed or overturned.


The Court concluded:

"We hold that a proper claim of the constitutional privilege against self-incrimination provides a full defense to prosecutions either for failure to register a firearm under sec.5841 or for possession of an unregistered firearm under sec.5851."

The targets of the federal government and its mainstream is not criminals.

It is law abiding citizens who partake of the 2nd amendment.

The 2nd amendment is in direct conflict with the continued overgrowth of the federal gov, and THAT is what this is all about.

'Universal background checks' is the current real agenda.

The calls for universal background checks is really a scheme to get registration, in disuise. Registration is required for effective confiscation.


This would mean revolutionary war in the US and nothing less. Hopefully the fedgov realizes this and stops pushing, but I seriously doubt thats going to happen now.


The ONLY ones who can stop that now are the fedgov. They are the ones bringing war, and they are the only ones who can stop it.

I hope people are calling & emailing the politicians. It does make a difference to the ones that are undecided or wishy washy on the subject.

That's the ticket, just ignore the miscreants.

Ass Hats can make up all the drivel they want, put a fancy seal on a piece of paper, and make all the proclomations they want.

Mandatory drivers license, or insurance laws do not stop people from driving?

Immigration laws do not stop criminals from jumping the border.

Ass Hat Gun Laws will not stop the exchange of guns.
