If the government succeeds in passing a federal gun registry law, would you comply?

    You're kidding, right? You want us to divulge our intent to violate the law on an open/public forum? :-)

    I would because I've seentoo many times when a weapon was used in a crime and it wasn't registered, it was difficult for the officers to work the case. Also if it was stolen, I could report it and if the police find someone holding, they can check the serial number and know it was obtained in a home burglary making an arrest.

    Yes because where I live my guns had to be registered when I bought them both handguns and long guns.When I got my carry permit I had to have a mental report from my doctor stating I was not crazy

    Full registration with no loopholes does not seem odious. But if he goes too far then congress must act

    I've had all my guns registered since I purchased my first one in 1983. It's always been a law where I live. I can't even buy a box of 22 ammo without showing my license. Cook county in Illinois has the strictest guns laws in the U.S, and it's really made a difference, Chicago never has any shootings, or should I re-phrase that as Chicago never has a day without a shooting. The one good thing came from me having my guns registered. One of my guns was stolen, and about two years later I get a call from the police department saying they have my gun and I can pick it up. It ended up leaving my house in the suburbs and ended up on the south side of Chicago. I never thought I would see that gun again.

    A law is a law. People who wouldn't are just as much criminals as every "undocumented worker" in the country.

    But... I don't see why Congress couldn't pass a law that requires the STATES to do it. I register my car, have liability insurance, a drivers license, have to comply with anti-pollution regs, and expect to get tickets if I break traffic laws. You have to have permits for guns now, what's the big deal?

    If all gun owners flocked to register their guns, the dep't. in charge probably couldn't handle the flood, and then people could complain that the government had hashed up yet another simple matter. :)

    But, I don't think there is anyone looking for registration, just universal background checks and closing the gun show loophole.

    I also live in NC and when I bought my 9MM I got it at a gun show.I had to have a background check and a permit before they would sell it to me.You don't get the permit without having the background check first.So what loop holes are you referring to?
  • gfreema... RED DAWN 2013/01/16 20:21:43

    In some states you can bypass having to get a permit and background check by purchasing at a gun show, thus the 'universal' background check.
  • RED DAWN gfreema... 2013/01/16 22:00:46

    I had background checks when I bought my guns.It's 5 o:clock right now I can leave right now and be back home by 7 with all the guns I can afford no checks.What are these laws going change.
  • gfreema... RED DAWN 2013/01/17 14:43:58

    It'll change people not getting background checks to buy guns. Also, it will make a federal standard to background checks.
  • RED DAWN gfreema... 2013/01/17 15:09:20

    These background checks aren't going to change a thing.The bad guys will still get their guns. Background checks are only for honest people and honest people don't mind background checks.

    The 2nd A. says NOTHING about accounting for your legal guns.

    There's nothing in the Constitution about registering cars or having drivers' licenses either. And people had problems with the concepts back when cars were first getting on the roads (they scared the horses, you know). By now if you drive an unregistered vehicle without a license or insurance nobody would have any sympathy for you if you got tossed in jail.

    Think of all the money generated from registering Automobiles. How much would you be willing to 'pay' to have your weapon registered? What if you sold your weapon to someone else? Did you do the background check on them? It's a new can-o-worms this administration want's to open. I want government to leave me alone.

    You accept all the regs and fees for cars NOW, although 100 years ago people argued against them on the same grounds you're arguing on re guns. So, now it's time for guns. There could be grandfathering for legitimate "collectors," different categories, etc.

    Yes, registration would generate revenue. You can't do ANYTHING except breathe outdoors without generating revenue for someone somewhere (and if you get sick from polluted air, you generate revenue for your doc and Big Pharma lol). And just think of all the tax money that would be spent on salaries for those thinking up all the regs. and systems and staffing the agencies. Gosh, the possibilities are endless.

    I agree about wanting gov't. to leave me alone. But it's not going to, so imo it's better to have a say in how it bugs me rather than let those loons in DC make it up as they go along. Just saying. :)

    It started small in Germany too when Hilter wanted to know where you came from and your job skills and everyone knows how that turned out. Obama will start with the registering then he will know where to sent his shock troops. Plus I don't trust a person who toke 2 and half years to show his birth certificate. I would of thought he could of got the fake quicker then that.
  • jubil8 ... Kurt 2013/01/16 22:27:44

    That's no answer.

    Your car is registered. Who's coming for you?

    You have a Birth Certificate. Who's coming for you?

    You have a Social Security Number. Who's coming for you?

    If you don't think the government knows who you are, where you are, and what you're doing, you've been smoking too much funny stuff.

    I don't care whether you trust Obama. In 4 years he hasn't actually done one thing to screw with your liberties/freedoms that hadn't already started under someone else (DHS, TSA, wire-taps, etc.).

    So enjoy your made up problems. Would you like to buy a bridge? I know where you can get one cheap (well, maybe not cheap, but less than full price).
