We need to track every single gun and every gun owner in the US. How can we check on you if we don't know who and where you are?

We demand the draft dismissal papers of Ted Nugent. He is such a cowardly 'patriot', so show us the records of his "Get out of Viet Nam" plan. The official documents, PLEASE!!

We can trust Obama and Holder - right? It's not like they have ever lied before - right? I mean the January tax increase on every working person, after the no tax increase on anyone making over $250K, wasn't really a tax increase was it? Holder had no idea that Fast & Furious was going on. We should support them because they really care about us - right?

Still going to be sales of "unregistered" guns no matter what laws are passed.

Those of you who have owned guns given to you by family members, friends, hunting partners you think they kept records of where these guns have gone. I know I lost all the paperwork last week on every single gun I have passed on! I suggest you do the same.

Sorry, I just don't remember when I lost that gun, it was so many many years ago, maybe I sold it to "some guy" I met in a bar while we were hunting, got a good price for it, but I didn't get his name....sorry!

Those of you who own guns you know which ones are on the books and which ones are not. Lose the paperwork on everyone of them NOW!

Destroy any gun records you have that would be of any help tracking or tracing a weapon you have passed on or sold.
If everyone does this there is no way for them to track/trace/register anything other than those weapons which have been purchased where the FFL has to keep files. If FFL's were smart they would now have a small fire in their file cabinets which will preserve the 2nd Amendment.
How about a water leak right over that file cabinet that has all those records!

.
the millions of NICS background check forms filled out by millions of gun purchasers over the last 20+ years are on file with the feds and always have been. Anyone who thinks different is pretty gullible. You have to fill out the form at the retailer and when the retailer calls NICS for approval they give the feds your name/dob/ss/address and type of gun you're buying which is plugged into the fed computer to see if you can buy it. SO, who is gullible enough to think the feds don't store that info at time of purchase ?

This is going to be one of those bills that does zero to reduce crime and cost law abiding gun owners a bunch of money and hassle so that some pompous law makers can pretend they did something in the wake of a tragedy.

The only thing this law will do is give people who sell guns illegally a reason to charge more.

The Government over stepped its bounds and the people know it. These "New Laws" will not be enforced by most states and fights WILL break out if they even try to enforce them.

Look around the country and gun sales are through the roof. US Citizens are already refusing to become subjects to Communistic beliefs and laws coming from a Government that is refusing to follow the Constitution/Bill of rights. They swore and oath to uphold the very things they are trying to by pass and that means the powers given to them by the people are revoked.

Freedom is not free ... the people will always have to fight for it or they will become the next victims. But understand that many people would like to turn a blind eye to what is happening because they feel it will all go away if they just close their eyes long enough. Write you congressmen , Governor , Senators and all heads of state you can... Push them to do more and support them when they fight back.

Anything free is not worth having and freedom has cost more then anything else in the history of the world. Those who gave their lives for what we get to enjoy today , gave us the responsibility to make sure we never let their cost be for nothing. It is about Honor , Duty , Justice , Freedom , Liberty and Courage. Be an American , don't just wave a flag and pretend.
