Minnesota Proposes Universal Gun Registration

Minnesota lawmakers in the state senate have proposed a bill that would require gun owners to register their weapons under the guise of “universal background checks.” Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, a gun rights advocacy group in Minnesota summarized what the bill aims to do:

 “SF 458, among other faults, would make you a criminal, punishable with up to a year in jail, if you buy or sell a pistol or cosmetically frightening rifle without doing the transfer through a licensed dealer (who will charge you $25 to make a permanent record for the federal government) or without the buyer getting a purchase permit (for which the police chief or sheriff will charge another $25).”

 Once again, this wouldn’t deal with the criminal element. What criminal is going to care that the law requires that he register his weapon or that he get a background check? All this would do is give the feds a list of people in the state of Minnesota who own a firearm, and they’re using the background check to do it. Criminals would be exempt.

It’s another way of achieving their goal of citizen disarmament through the back door. It’s practically impossible to try to go door-to-door, inspecting people’s homes for guns and taking them away. They’ve got to go about it in a more gradual way, pretending to be concerned about mental illness and acting like if we knew everyone’s criminal history, we could keep guns out of the wrong hands. They frame the debate in such a way that even some conservatives think that universal background checks and mental health checks are a good idea before allowing someone to own a gun. But it’s because people have accepted these criteria for gun ownership that the government will continue to broaden the definition of mental illness and withhold 2nd Amendment rights from anyone who has even the smallest criminal record (even if the citizen was actually innocent).

They’re even trying to bar military veterans from owning guns on the basis that these veterans might not be competent enough to handle their own affairs because of certain physical or mental conditions. If Veterans Affairs decides that a particular veteran is not competent, then that vet will not be able to own a firearm. A letter from the VA to a veteran said that there would be consequences if the vet disobeyed their orders:

 “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both…”

 And these “determinations of incompetency” are all at the discretion of the VA.

There was a Missouri bill that was introduced last week that would ban all semi-automatic rifles and require all semi-automatic rifle owners to turn in their weapons within 60 days of the law’s effective date or else become felons. In response, a Republican proposed a bill that would make it a class D felony for any lawmaker to propose a bill that encroaches on people’s 2nd Amendment rights. Now, if we could get every state to enact something like that, we’d be in much better shape.

      The part of infringe that Justice Scallia wrote in Heller "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues"

      • leefromok

        The original intent of the 2nd amendment was to allow citizens to protect themselves from tyrannical government.
        If that’s true, then law abiding citizens should have access to the same armament as the government
        It’s not just liberal judges and politicians that are trying to infringe our rights.

    Fire any politician that attempts to impose any new gun laws. Develope a new candidate that supports theConstitution fully, begin a recall against any politician that attempts this kind of back door seizure, write your representative and threaten removal for any who vote for more anti gun laws, they are in violation of the constitution and their oath of office.

    Problem solved.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Hey, if you execute them you're getting read of free labor. Just convict them and for a sentence: Make the individual work from 0600 to 2000 (6 am to 8 pm) Monday through Friday and then on Saturday 0600 to 1800 (6 am to 6 pm) for a maximum of 5 years per charge. This punishment will be give to the person no matter what gender they are and if there has been a death related to the crime you'll go straight to the gallows with no appeal allowed.

          Don, I didn't mean what my statement sounded like, it was late and my fingers was typing faster than my mind was working. What I meant was yeah give them an appeal but only three: One: state, two: District, three:Federal and if the sentence is upheld in all three then they go straight to the gallows.

          As to my service I'd do it again because that oath I took was for the rest of my life. Oh, it also includes the protection of those that can not defend themselves and yes it also includes those that will not.

        Actually, doctorbob, if you look at the demographics of gun ownership, time is not on your side. As the number of guns owned has increased the percent of households owning guns has decreased. Its the younger households that aren't signing on. The idea of a geriatric citizens army with their walkers and guns is simply laughable.

      If their gun and magazine bans are passed, registration, and/or any/all of their other unconstitutional infringements of our rights, I will not comply. Millions more will not comply.
      DHS and other alphabet agencies have recently purchased over 1.8 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammo – enough to shoot every man, woman, and child in the country 5 times or more – ammo that’s illegal for military use under international law, and have just ordered more and an additional 7,000 FULLY AUTOMATIC "personal defense" weapons. How does anyone with the capability of rational thought escape the conclusion that our government is preparing for a war on its own citizens?
      Feinstein, Schumer, Obama, Holder, Bloomberg, Cuomo, and their whole gang are tyrant wannabes. To them, anyone who does, or might, oppose their control over every aspect of our lives, is “a criminal” because they said so.
      To quote a few of their heroes, with explanatory comments in ( ):
      “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” – Mao
      (They revere Mao and the way he ruthlessly grabbed power in China. The fact that he murdered about 100 million Chinese to do it is, to them, a “feature,” not a “bug.”)
      “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves. … The only real power comes out of a long rifle. … Everyone imposes his own system as far as his army can reach. … We don’t let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns? … The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” — Joseph Stalin
      “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.” — Adolf Hitler
      (These psychopathic sociopaths in our government – and THEY ARE PRECISELY THAT, never make the mistake of doubting it – believe that they are anointed to be our rulers and that we are the equivalent of Hitler’s “subject races.” And we know what they did to "them.")
      Don’t tell me, “It can’t happen here in America.” To borrow a quote from Mike Vanderboegh,
      “Anyone who tells you that ‘It Can’t Happen Here’ is whistling past the graveyard of history. There is no ‘house rule’ that bars tyranny coming to America. History is replete with republics whose people grew complacent and descended into imperial butchery and chaos.”
      Hitler disarmed the Jews and others, then murdered millions
      Stalin disarmed the Russians, them murdered millions
      Mao disarmed the Chinese peasants, then murdered nearly 100 million.
      The Turks disarmed the Armenians, then murdered 1.5-2 million.
      Pol Pot disarmed the Cambodians and murdered millions.
      Rwanda disarmed its ethnic groups, then murdered millions.
      The list goes on … about 262 MILLION people murdered BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENTS in the 20th century – AFTER they allowed those governments to disarm them. See: http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/20TH.HTM
      They ALL thought “It can’t happen here” – until they were disarmed and it started, then it was too late. Don’t make the same mistake. Don’t EVER let your government disarm you.
      The Founders knew that government, if not constrained at every step, will continue to accumulate power and control until it becomes tyranny. That’s why they feared standing armies and insisted that the “right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
      “A tyrannical rule cannot in any reasonable construction be accounted lawful, and therefore the disturbance of such a government cannot be esteemed seditious, much less traitorous.” – Thomas Aquinas
      When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty – Thomas Jefferson
      Take the pledge:
      http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2012/12/19/my-personal-pledge-of-resistance-against-any-attemp-to-disarm-us-by-means-of-an-assault-weapons-ban/

        Then there is the FDA (federal disease administration).
        It’s hard to count all the people that have been killed by drugs that have been taken off the market only after they have killed enough people.
        And pharmaceutical companies are protected from truly helpful supplements and cheap alternatives.

        Some estimates are that 15 million Philippine women were sterilized by vaccines. They sued the world health organization and won. (and that is just the Philippines)
        You can see Bill Gates talking about how to reduce the world population using vaccines on YouTube.
        The USA is full of obese people that are dyeing from lack of nutrition because they follow the government guidelines.
        Endocrine disrupters are lowering fertility rates in both men and women.
        Male potency is half what it was 10 years ago.

    • wmp23d

      Don't you mean the Mexican Drug Cartel members should register their assault rifles they got from the gun running Obama and Holder in "Fast and Furious"? The same guns that have been used to kill Americans. Holder should be removed from office and face murder charges and Obama should be impeached at the least. Nixon was impeached for Watergate and I don't believe anyone died from Watergate. It sure seems funny that Obama used executive privilege to prohibit the release of any documents concerning "Fast and Furious".

    How about the word, "Extortion?" To obtain from a person by force, intimidation, or undue or illegal power." And, that is what registration is all about. NOT one gun carrying criminal is going to put his/her name on a list The list does nothing but line up all legal gun owners and leaves criminals at large to do their dirty work; and, opens the door to complete removal of legal guns. Who do they think they are addressing? We Americans didn't just get off the boat! The word Extortion hits the nail on the head and with extortion comes the infringement of The People's rights to bear arms. I thought the whole idea was to enforce the gun laws and rules on the book and actually put criminals away. Guess not.

  • drmdellis

    Okay you folks in Minnesota, put your "big boy" pants on and defy these communist wannabe dictators. You already know that registration is the first step of confiscation. Don't tell them anything. When they do as the crooks in the District of Communists have done and pass "laws" that are in violation of the Constitution, then they have broken their oath to "protect and defend the Constitution" and therefore have nullified their right to hold office, and should be arrested, tried, and hung. These socialists need rooting out and exterminating like the vermin they are. They are a disgrace to our Founders, and to all that have gone before us and sacrificed so much to obtain and preserve our freedoms. Do not give in. NO REGISTRATION!

    This madness isn't gun control it is people control. Control the honest, hard working American gun owner, strip the citizen of any rights and liberty and make them a subject. This will not bother the ciminals, it will only go after law abiding folks. Registration leads to confiscation, history proves it. If this nonsense does come to pass I pray that every citizen of Minnesota decides to become a criminal, defy the tyrants and not register one damn gun! Vote the tyrants out of office, take a stand and be a patriot. There is strength in numbers.

  • wdcraftr

    Gun control doesn't exist. It's People Control. Did you know that maybe 1 in a million crimes with guns are committed by a legal gun owner with a legal gun? So why do Legal gun owners need to give up gun rights, or need Registration? Only so Tyrannous govt folks know where to go to take them away. If they can't outlaw them, then they want to know where they are, so they can come to your home and Take them, Unlawfully.. Guns, right to protect ones self and family, freedom of speech, assembly, etc, are God Given Rights. The Constitution just re-states these rights. Govt does Not give them to us, nor does the Constitution. God does! And Govt connot Take these rights away!!! Only You can Give these rights away. If you do Not wish to give up your Rights, then buy guns and ammo. Throughout History, this is the Only way to Protect those rights. You must Protect, Earn, Fight for, Die for those rights, if you wish to Keep Them....

    HISTORY TEACHES= "This year will go down in history 4 the 1st time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. R streets will be safer, R police more efficient, & the world will follow R lead into the future. ADOLPH HITLER, 1935 The Weapon Act of Nazi Germany. It could not be clearer that the DEMOCRATIC PARTY is the Communist Party. I saw film of Obama's inauguration supportor, saying Yes to communist! THEY WANT THE GOV'T TO TAKE CARE OF THEM! They don't know history, it's not gov't taken care, it's CONTROLLING them! They will work where told 2 work= for their daily FOOD (NO MONEY) etc.. I not going into detail but they will have COST in order to benefit only the Elite in Power the rest (the little guys) R SLAVES to the ELITE!

    And I say to all the lawmakers in Minnesota that the idea that they can take away the God given right of the people to bear and keep arms and or charge them for it, then they themselves must be charged each and every time the kiss their children and or make love to their wives// husbands thought that too is a God given right

    As an expatriate of 'Massachusetts-on-the-Mississippi' I can only shake my head in wonder at what is taking place there.
    I know I shouldn't be surprised given that the 'Land of 10,000 Taxes' has produced Humphrey, Mondale, Wellstone, Franken, et al, but I just can't see the Patriotic Taxpayers who don't drink the Twin Cities Kool-Aid standing for this.

    The way the government is going about gun control is like telling me to get castrated because my neighbor has too many kids.

    They tried this in Canada and even Canadians did not comply. After 20 years of trying to get guns registered the government gave up. Of the gun owners who did register guns NOT ONE OF THEM WAS A CRIMINAL!

    Universal gun registration disenfranchises potential gun
    owners. It creates a burden on
    individuals to get to the place of registration and apply for permission to own
    or possess a gun pursuant to the second amendment. In locations where registration fees apply,
    or where government office hours are restrictive - this will prevent people,
    especially minorities and poor people from exercising their constitutional
    second amendment rights. This amounts to
    the government’s deliberate attempts at disenfranchising gun ownership by
    otherwise legal owners. Any attempts at
    disenfranchising potential gun owners from exercising their second amendment right
    should be shouted down by the ACLU and other pro-liberties, pro- individual rights
    groups. After all the right to bear arms
    is a right not to be infringed on, not a privilege.

  • rational

    Forget registration, how about responsibility. If you sell a gun, you can register the gun and its purchaser or not. If you don’t register the sale and it’s used in a crime, you’re a conspirator in that crime. If you register the sale, then there’s no problem.

  • http://www.lemmingreport.blogspot.com Akingu

    it only makes it easier to target the legal gun owners and it ignores the true criminals in the ghettos, synagogues, and barrios. To date, the criminals that commit the MOST crimes are the blacks and mexicans while the serial shooters are jewish. Loughter, jewish, Hinkley, jewish, Lanza, jewish, Kliebold, jewish, Harris, ARA jewish supporter, DC sniper jewish, Rubyjewish, , Oswald, jewish, Booth, jewish.
    Maybe we need to start getting rid of the JEWS and our childrens schools will be safer?

    I'm curious at the term universal background checks. My understanding of the term universal is that it is world-wide, and I guess you'd have to throw in the heavens too. So, who will conduct these checks? Interpol? Aliens? Just saying...

  • James Maxwell

    And yet another attempt to provide governments with information for their planned
    confiscation of firearms. But first they have to find a way to circumvent the Constitution
    and get the uninformed people to comply with an illegal demand. My guns will be
    undocumented firearms and they government will always be wondering when or where
    the citizens will have them.

  • HerrCapitanFick

    Older people to a degree have an allegiance to this country -
    they are patriotic to a limited degree. The younger people are not. The younger
    people have no allegiance to anyone, but themselves. They will tell on anyone
    for anything; they will even tell on themselves! The government has started
    various campaigns about telling on your neighbors/fellow citizens. If you have
    been paying attention, then you should already know that the women and the kids
    already do that and especially if there is a little something in it for them.
    The women and kids are already in the government's camp. And when it comes time,
    they will take you, the big bad mouths and squash you like a bug! They will nuke
    an entire town if they find the need/want to keep their power! If you so much as
    give them a flicker of resistance, now you don't believe me -- tug on Superman's
    cape. You have lost your country, but you'll be O.K. if you keep paying your
    money. Pay attention now. You have lost your backbone and your country. I know
    you fools are going to argue with me, but that just means you have not been
    paying attention. I believe this is my main point on everything!

    In the end result anyone who disagrees with ANYTHING the government wants to do will be branded as 'mentally ill' and taken to a FEMA reorientation center anyway... The current gun ban in New York and under debate in other States are nothing more than 'tests'... The real 'end game' being played is a complete new list of 'mental illnesses' which ban gun ownership from an ever expanding portion of the population... The current 'gun ban' legislation simply provides a list of all pro-gun people who will become mentally ill under future re-definitions of the term mental illness... This way, they will not violate the 2nd Amendment which could be a problem for them in the SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States), AND, most importantly, it lets them 'pick and choose' who is mentally ill, so the corporate statist Elite's can practice 'selective enforcement' and continue to exempt themselves while they restrict the ability for self-defense for the rest of us...

    Minnesota has a bunch of no good politicians and the Unions are the main culprits. Unions don't care about this country only the bones that they get. Minneapolis is on its way to becoming something worse than Detroit.

    When will the men in the place of making law wake up? we see this hate for the freedom of the people. We see this hate they have for we the people& for the people because they want full control over all of us even over all of America. I know what all of them are after it's to take away every thing we've had given to all of the America people. When they get our gun's then they have us look at that pot belled taco bender in Venesuela. He's the big dactitor you must know all who put him in that place are the same marxist bunch that is working with this to be dactitor of the United States Of America. osama hussein obama this is all about the marxisr muslim socialist democrats & the marxist news media. If all of the America people don't wake up now like today it will be to late for anything to change.
    America our only hope is in Jesus Christ & Our Heavenly Father The Only True God.
    It's time for all of America to pray as never before pray America Pray The God Of Abraham Isaac jabco Can & Will See Us through & Make Away for all of us to see Only Him [ God ]

    make these changes we must have.

  • glock 19 fan

    Let's see..... Registration.....followed by Taxation followed by Confiscation as the personal property taxes are raised so high that the gun owners can't pay them. That has been a subject for concern for the last 50 years. And it keeps rearing its ugly head.
    Not only that but government at all levels has an abysmal record for personal data protection and gun registration lists would be extremely likely to be "lost" or "stolen" from a laptop computer in a govt employee's car's back seat.

  • KY republican

    ;You may as well get used to the demise of the 2nd Amendment, the Bill of Rights and eventually the Constitution. Figure out where to put your money and where to live. The Socialists and Commies are coming and we are done as the America we all lived in before 2009. May God forgive them and forgive us for allowing it to happen.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    No single gun control law, and we have over 20,000 of them, has ever stopped a
    criminal intent on causing havoc. Passing additional laws will only serve to disarm honest people. Nothing government does will have any effect whatever on criminals.

  • redrover

    Missouri ought to just deal with their own state and butt out of everyone else's business because we will not give up on our guns! It is no ones business who has them or not...what idiot thinks that gun control will stop a thing...it will not!!! It is better we have them to stop those that would get them anyway no matter what! So get over the gun thing and get some smarts; let's get this nation back in shape. again! Guns won the Revolutionary War and the West too!! The way our government has gotten- it is time to strap on the side arms and put a rifle in every car again anyway! They are total fools and are trashing America beyond belief with their insanity!!!!

  • nanblan

    Yup. That's exactly the first step Hitler took. With the amassing of a national list of gun owners, the Nazis were then able to use the prized information to confiscate guns from whomever they wanted (primarily Jews.) They did pick and choose, however, allowing those favorable to their movement to retain their weapons.

    Such a list is a gold mine to any oppressive form of government, such as fascism, communism, Marxism, etc. I would have to say that since Obama's policies are taking away more of our freedoms each and every day, and trying to destroy our economy and basic way of life, he and his administration definitely fall under the label of oppressive . . . and extremely dangerous.
