GOA Alert: Will the U.S. Follow Germany's Example?

Gun Appreciation Day Draws Out Gun Enthusiasts
The country that invented Nazism sets up national gun registry
Something very instructive just happened in Germany.
Germany just implemented "a vast registry that details every legal gun owner in the country, along with information about all of their firearms."
They did this, based on records that, in some cases, "were kept on index cards across what used to be 551 separate local registries."  
Thus, with everyone's name already on an index card (read:  4473 forms) in what was effectively a "universal background check," it was a small step to a national gun registry. 
Not surprisingly, "gun rights groups" in Germany raised no real opposition.  "We are used to it," said one.
Now, in the words of The Washington Post:
     If they are preparing a raid on a house, they can scout the address in the database to be better prepared for what weapons might lie within.  Before the database, they could only guess at overall numbers, and finding the weapons registered to a certain address had been laborious.
Do we need any better indication of why "universal background checks" are the most insidious aspect of Barack Obama’s gun control? 
We know that gun confiscation is the ultimate endgame for many of the gun grabbers on the Left.  Consider just a few, recent well-known cases:
* "Confiscation could be an option," declared New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview (December 27, 2012).
* "We cannot have big guns out here," said Iowa Rep. Dan Muhlbauer. "Even if you have them, I think we need to start taking them." (Interview with the Iowa Daily Times Herald, December 19, 2012.)
* "No one is allowed to be armed. We're going to take all the guns," said P. Edwin Compass III, the superintendent of the New Orleans police, right before several law-enforcement agencies began confiscating the firearms of lawful gun owners in the wake of Hurricane Katrina (2005).
The task of confiscating guns is much easier when the government has a registration list.  And that is the number one reason gun owners should oppose background checks, because they give federal bureaucrats the framework for a national registration system.
If Obama gets his way, we will be much further down road to giving the Andrew Cuomos of the world the registration lists they need. 
Some liberal gun-grabbers are trying to paint it as "non-controversial."  But this hideous provision requiring every American to get the permission of the government before exercising their Second Amendment rights must be stopped.   
ACTIONClick here to contact your Senators and Representative.  Insist that they oppose the national background check, which would set the framework for a national gun registry and confiscation.


  1. They can pass all the laws that they want. Universal Background checks my left nut...There are plenty of guns out there that way predate 4473s. Guns have been sold and traded since the revolution. How in the hell are they planning to enforce these "laws"? If they pass such foolish "laws", everybody should trade things around with their "circle" of like minded people. Fvck the leftists, and their attack on the established CULTURE of the former USA. We have had a "gun culture" of the law abiding since before Marx's mama was a gleam in her parents eye. WE will prevail.

  2. Try reading the 1968 Gun Control Act. It is almost word for word the same as the Hitler Gun Control Act of 1938. You'd be amazed at how similar they are...

  3. Just a coincidence, I am sure..........

  4. I recently joined Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. The executive director, Dudley Browne, is being shelled by local media for some of his position statements, mainly on abortion.

    But I do not lose heart. In Wenatchee WA, my six foot eight inch son is playing Chief Bromden in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" a role immortalized by an equal hero of mine, Will Sampson (who was only 6' 5" tall), giant Oklahoma Muscogee, from Okmulgee OK, Indian, in the movie. I may risk expulsion by trying to link to one of the sound clips of Vern in the play but it describes what America is becoming ominously. I guess I can't link to it but I will just email it to Brock and he can hear it anyway. Thanks.

    1. What's abortion got to due with guns?:)

      Please do send the link.

    2. I intend to ask him just that in a call next week. May try to get my fifty bucks back. Won't be the first time I've been suckered.

    3. I intend to ask him just that in a call next week.

      Let me know, please.

  5. I am unable to find anything that connects Brown to an abortion stance. He may have been falsely accused or it might have confused him with one of the many Dudley Brown's on a Google search. Please ignore that part of my comment.

    I have read many of his pronouncements today and support all of them. A 2A defender, for sure.
