  1. One would think the brites of this world would come to the understanding that no one should be punished for a crime they have not committed?
    And certainly not in America.
    It’s an admitted fact that registration is about being able to control something that was involved in crime. Acts only a criminal has control over. And almost never anyone from the government there to stop.
    So, the act of registration can only be considered an act of punishment. As it can have no other semi-lawful excuse.
    Except confiscation. Theft.
    Ergo the act of asking one to register your firearms is an admission that you might one day play out your criminal fantasies.
    But you’re admitting you’re a criminal none the less.
    As indeed everyone in those pictures above are in the highest order thereof.

    • It’s worth remembering that the 5th Amendment exempts criminals from gun registrations. Yes, that’s precedent, SCOTUS I think.

      Meanwhile, on “act of punishment”, Ayn Rand understood: “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” — Floyd Ferris (in “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand)

      • Haynes v. U.S held that prohibited persons under the GCA can’t be charged with not paying for a tax stamp while in possession of an NFA weapon.

        Why the entire NFA has not been struck down under equal protection is perhaps a future case that nobody yet is willing to risk ten years and associated legal fees to test.

      • Ya, to funny!
        I argued that one over a traffic ticket back in the late 70’s.
        That a statement signed under the “penalty of perjury” was a waiver of my right to not self-incriminate. And that the government was in violation of the 5A by trying to require it.
        The judge said it wasn’t a waiver of your 5th. until its used in court.
        So, under Miranda, does that mean you can lie on the form. Then have it stricken from evidence when it comes up in court?
        Wouldn’t you love to use that one on the IRS?
        Which I think it was Peter Schiff actually pulled that one off in back in the day.
        He whited out the word “Perjury”, then photocopied his 1040 form.
        Then went to town on his tax bill. All to prove a point for his book. But funny as hell non the less.

  2. Off topic:

    I can no longer access one of my favorite blogs “Virtual Mirage”.
    It appears to have been hacked and redirects to another site,
    that Norton blocks. This has been happening for the past week.
    Can someone let Larry know about this.

    thank you

  3. They already know at least for any guns purchased from a dealer after 1993 unless you think the FBI is following the law about deleting the records. I would say since 1968 except the ATF has apparently bungled the record keeping. The 4473s from out of business dealers do go to the ATF though which is busy digitizing them. Plus they are visiting existing dealers and engaging in wholesale copying of records. As for privately purchased guns, there are obviously ammo sales as an indicator. Do you always use cash and leave your phone at home or in a Faraday bag. And then there are holsters. Difficult to get a decent one except on-line. Optics?
