I keep being told that no one wants to take my guns – no one from anywhere. Well, I keep seeing a whole lotta stuff from people who “slyly” wish to do exactly that in a more stealthy way (NH State Rep Katherine “the Hutt” Rogers is one of them – she is insistent that I am not of the caliber (heh!) of person to own this kind of inanimate object she claims that can leap off a table and kill a whole town) by the death of a thousand cuts. Helps them when they make each of those cuts costs a thousand bucks, too.
Well, here’s an outright, out of the closet, first stepper – a Democrat out of PA (emphasis mine):
PA Democrat Re-Launches Effort to Create Gun Registry
Since he first took office in 2001, Pennsylvania State Representative Angel Cruz has made it a point to advocate for gun control. But some say his latest efforts show how desperate the movement is to cram infringements down gun owners’ throats at the state level.
House Bill 610, also known as the Firearm Registration Act, aims to give the Pennsylvania State Police the right to maintain a registry of all guns and gun owners in a central database.
After today’s sub-committee “hearing” on HB 1589, Universal Background Checks, I am saddened to have to admit to myself that any foolish beliefs I held about representative government and due process are the stuff of children’s dreams. I’ve always liked to believe that I am a logical, rational person who is able to connect dots; when I cannot, I used to believe that sound, in-depth research would lead me to facts, and ultimately, truths. Maybe not truths that I liked, but truths nevertheless.
What I am saying is I am fully convinced that that the fix is in on HB 1589…[you’ll see below the amendment handed out today which we were told they plan to amend again before Tuesday’s Executive Session] The chair of the committee, Ed Butler, Democrat of Hart’s Location, could care less about 1000s of emails and hundreds of phones opposing gun registration – the ultimate goal of HB 1589. He says “appreciates” our points of view, he says ‘respects” our opinions, but from where I sat today, he seemed as though he could give a red rat’s rear-end about our rights when he believes they should be restricted, if allowed at all. He and the bill’s prime sponsor, Elaine “Blood Red Shoes” Andrews-Ahern (lord I hate the pretension of hyphenated names), are hell-bent on sneaking the camel’s nose of gun registration underneath the statutory tent.

All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state.
It doesn’t say ‘some‘ persons. It doesn’t say ‘approved‘ persons. It doesn’t say ‘persons who don’t scare us’. It says ‘all persons’.
A right for which you have to ask permission isn’t a right at all. So the first point, I think, that has to be made regarding this bill is that it takes the wrong approach towards the goal sought by its sponsors.
The right approach would be to amend the NH Constitution: to declare that NOT all persons have the right to defend themselves, or that self-defense is not a right but a privilege, or perhaps to change the definition of ‘persons‘ to something like ‘persons we like’. But until such a change has been made, any 5th grader can see that this bill conflicts with the NH Constitution. It takes a constitutional scholar to miss that.
Am reading down through the list of LSRs – thoughts of our legislators for bills for the upcoming session. Well, we see that at least ONE person hates the idea that law abiding Citizens can’t be trusted with firearms without yet one more database kept on its citizens.
banning assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines.
If she can’t take it from you, she certainly wants to know exactly who owns what. And with that last one, if it goes where I think it will, shall forbid any private sale of firearms. Like if one of the other Groksters had a firearm that they no longer wanted but did catch my interest (of which I can think of several)? And WHY is it any of your business, Ms. Andrews-Ahearn? Are you scared of the guns, or the citizens that possess them? Or is this, yet again, the Progressive way – punish the bad folk by punishing all of us? What is it about being a busybody that inserts themselves into everyone else’s lives, stops them from doing what they like (or at least makes it far more difficult), and then feels good about themselves? Were you, in a former life, a National Park Service that enjoyed keeping WW II vets, or Korean War vets, or Viet Name War vets out of their memorials? Does it give you “a thrill up my leg” in determining how others MUST live their lives?
New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Democrat-dominated state legislature there have passed a law mandating that an estimated one million “assault rifles” must be registered with the police by April 15, 2014. The law was passed in the temporary hysteria…

If you support further restrictions on keeping and carrying guns, you’re in for a treat. If you think gun control laws make you safe, developments in California will make you want to move there. If any of these proposed laws pass, you really will want to move. Read on….
Every time that the topic of illegal immigration comes up, the Proggies all exclaim “But we CAN’T deport all 12 million “undocumented workers!!!” when it comes to enforcing just our current immigration laws – you all but admit that Government can’t find them all? Their only solution is to just amnesty them
So, all you Proggies, all aflutter about a gun registration that would make – do you really think that you’ll be able to find all 200 million lawful Citizens that own the 300 million guns (or even a 100 million owners)? But I hear nothing about amnestying them, though.
I guess it doesn’t pay to be legal in Progressive World. After all, you keep complaining that the illegals “won’t come out of the shadows”; what makes you think that gun owners won’t use similar techniques? Betcha we can find more illegal immigrants (even those in Bawston with Irish brogues) than you can gun owners! Or, do you have some way of, ahem, profiling a gun owner, or something similar to your hated “racial profiling”? I’m betting that because profiling would serve YOUR purposes, it would quickly become “a valued law enforcement technique”, right?
Here, I will give you one solid hint for “gun owner profiling” that just might help you: lawful gun owners kill less people with cars than illegal (and often, drunk when they do) aliens.
