The controlers are testing the waters with this. The democrates have long been supportive about restricting or removing gun rights, and Obama makes no
effort to hide his thinking along those same lines. This push is not really all that unsuspected it is just to see how far the can push, It will be
resisted, you know, if we give an inch they will take a mile.
The danger is in the slow and progressive chipping away. As with all the freedoms that are but fond memories now. They are taken bit by bit in such a
way that arguments just like the one we have going on here are all that ever happens, some people get pissed and some people applaud it but most
people accept it with an "it's not that bad" or "it could be worse" attitude. After everyone is adjusted to the new stricter regulations they
will chip another bit away. This is the process and it is an easily found pattern repeated across many aspects of our freedoms. After a while the
threat of armed resistance to tyranny is further reduced. Even now civilian firepower at it's maximum legal force is hugely outmatched by the
military, hell even the cops.
The problem here is in the recording of whose buying what. It is a form of the extremely dangerous and feared "gun database" that is ALWAYS
used to track and confinscate the means of resistance during a disarmerment. That is why these small enchroachments have such really huge implications
in future incroachments and finally in the disarmerment of the people.
As stated earlier the ruse that this would help track murderers and robbers is crap. Murderers and robbers couldn't care less about the bullets in
their (probably illeagal) gun, I can't think of too many criminals use there own legally owned weapon. It would be like leaving your ID card at the
scene. No, this effects the larger whole, and is an attempt to further weaken the 2nd amendment and to widen the gap between Our
capabilities. The point of the 2nd ammendment is to keep the people on an even footing with the government. To protect us from tyrany and to
afford us the right
of last resort.
If the NRA is worried about these proposals then so am I.
They have posted alerts here NRA Legislative Alerts
If you are concerned I would recommend checking your area and notifying your representatives. Fortunatly Wisconsin looks ok for now.
