The Brady Campaign currently has 71 sponsors in the U.S. House for a bill to further restrict your right to keep and bear arms and have defacto gun registration.
They say we should have nothing to fear. But in addition to increasing the price of the gun due to the increased paperwork it create a paper trail on gun purchases. This is not acceptable in the exercise of any inalienable right. What would the outcry be if you were required to get a background check before writing a letter to the editor or have a paper trail exist for the purchase of religous books?
