If You Think Gun Registration Is Benign, Think Again

What is the public policy objective for gun registration? Does it prevent crime? No, I doubt it very much. Maybe I am missing something obvious, but how would it?

Everyone who buys a gun and then registers it has completed a 4473, so they are on file somewhere as a gun owner. People who buy privately and legally are pretty much the same population as those who buy through FFLs. So we are left with the people who buy illegally...felons and others who are barred from purchasing or possessing weapons.

I think those people are called "criminals," and that is a segment of the population that is curiously uninterested in obeying the law, so registration obviously doesn't apply to them.

What are we left with? Government control and power and, in this case coercion and pre-trial punishment.

Elderly Man Who Shot Two Burglars In His Home Charged With Felony Over Inherited Gun

It's a Gateway Pundit article, but I checked the links, and they are pretty much straight down the middle with this one. It is a vile and disgusting example of government overreach, and an obvious example of the hatred that government has for anyone who has the temerity to ignore their authority.

Nowhere is it even suggested that this poor man should not have been allowed to possess firearms...his only transgression was against the power of the state, and we cannot have people acting as free men!

14 Which is why I am laughing at all the gun owners who are so proud of the noncompliance rates for not registering.

You fools, they have just turned your gun(s) into a paperweight that you do not dare use for any purpose nor allow anyone to know you have, lest you be arrested.

Ex wives and ex girlfriends are the obvious danger. Now consider this: If the fire department is called to your house and as part of pulling apart the walls finds your stash, they will have to report it. Ditto for any sort of city inspector, insurance adjuster, and probably any sort of licensed repair. Every potential interaction must be judged on the basis of you being a criminal.

Gun confiscation is here in these states. WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Posted by: SDN at June 09, 2019 02:24 PM (tyEy7)

15 Grump is correct - and if I sell that firearm in a private sale I don't have to call my FFL to update anything.

CBD's point is valid. Registration is a mechanism for the State to exert control, dissuade the law abiding, and ultimately enable confiscation. So called "safety" considerations are false and only make the entire scheme palatable to the uninformed.

The 4473s aren't as much of a problem as the background check records. By law, they are supposed to be purged afterwards, but the Feds have been caught keeping that data on multiple occasions.

WILLFULLY keeping that data in violation of the law.

That's just the Feds, I'm sure that multiple state governments have been tapping into the same data.

Iraq/A-stan vets will generally have a very relevant take on burying firearms - the stupid guerillas are the ones that have their gear on them when not guerilla-ing.
When it's time to bury, them, it's time that you actually need them - and therefore it's time to bury a lot of them, in a lot of places, because that's how you stay alive.
A more effective take on the "avoid turning crap in" thing is considering how easy it is these days to make AR and Glock receivers. Any idiot can do it in their garage fairly quickly and with a minimal investment in tools. These are the parts that actually have the paper trail - the rest of the firearm aren't controlled items.

They don't need 4473's anymore. The commerical panopticon created by the tech giants is the most effective and complete surveillance system ever devised by man.

If you are operating on - and relying on - the assumption that they do not know you are a firearm owner, you are making a horrifically bad life decision.


They know who the lawful firearm owners are. The question is, do they know *what* you have - and can you convincingly claim to have disposed of it, or turned all of it in, beyond their ability to put you in legal jeopardy for it?

And just as important, if things have gotten out of hand to the point they're going door to door, they're not going to hesitate to put the screws to you in other ways simply because you're not a moonbat. 2A aside, how do you think things are going to go when you're unemployable, can't bank, get get loans, and get can't basic services because you're blacklisted?

Are they writing your name? Yes. Take a hard pass on that.

Here in CO, the law states that all records of background checks are discarded after the purchase.

And I believe that our betters follow that law just as strictly as they follow all the other laws they constantly and enthusiastically break with open disregard for whether or not anyone knows it.

This could honestly warrant a Sunday Gun Thread topic all to itself, because it's generally related.
Unless he took some really extreme precautions, your brother DID post under his name, ID'ed as a cop. If he is using his own PC or mobile device, on his own network, there is absolutely no way that post isn't easily and immediately traceable to him.
Misunderstandings like this are going to get people killed at some point. If it's a matter of life or death, you need to be using burner equipment on someone else's network, or public equipment, while minimizing your exposure to public and private cameras, and - this is really important - NOT carrying any of your own tech (even turned off), and not using transport that can be linked to you.

I hate the idea of felons voting, because those people are mostly non-political and will vote for whomever makes criming easier (Democrats). I don't like the idea of them owning guns either, because that makes their crimey ways even worse.

But, I can't approve of our current situation, where a man pays his debt to society, and isn't restored to full citizenship, ever.

68 Just to make myself clear, Witchdoktor, I think it should be legal for any adult to own and purchase a gun regardless of past crimes. Its either a right or its not and should not be abridged.

71 Form 4473s are intended for tracking guns used in
crimes, not as a means of registration. That's why they are not sent
into the ATF but rather are kept at the FFL.

They stay in a box or whatever package they are sent in and go into a Government storage facility in West Virginia.


There have been multiple articles about former ATF agents being pi$$ed off because they can't find records for guns used in crimes.


The ATF doesn't want to deal with them because the law says they can't create a searchable database so they just sit there.

72 We do not register guns in TN.

Do they charge a fee to register your guns elsewhere? Most of the time I find money is the motivation behind a lot of government policy.

I'd be really concerned if they didn't charge a fee, because then obviously the only motivation would be data collection and the desire to hold owners legally liable for anything done with their firearm.

You can't buy long gun ammo in CT without a pistol permit. (There is a sort of alternative ammo permit but it's as much a pain in the ass as the pistol permit, so why not?).

In MA at least you could buy long gun ammo.

It's so arbitrary. Drive over the line to NH and the gas station / general store has ammo on the wall behind the clerk where cigarettes might be and they don't even ask for ID.

I could see this being reasonable in cases of things like murder, rape, kidnap or armed robbery, where you deny someone else their liberty. But we have many crimes defined as felonies that fall short of that mark. Ask Mike Flynn, for instance.

And, firearms ownership is a Constitutional right and a natural right, unlike voting (prior to the CW, anyway), which is a civil right.

I'm with YD that after all penalties have been served, petitioning the Court for restoration of civil rights is proper.

Mopes won't bother, but those who were honestly charged, sentenced, and completed all requirements, should be able to petition for restoration. This is not forgiveness, but acknowledgement of learning through punishment. If there is no chance for redemption, why even bother to attempt it.

All the Dept needs to do is provide a name. I think I'm failing to properly communicate this; if you post to an account via your own computer or mobile device, or post via an otherwise anonymous device that you've used on your own network, or used (geographically) from your home, you are busted. They know who you are.

There is no such thing as a "low profile account".

You can't even say, "oh, well, there are 3 other users in my home, they don't know which one was using a shared PC. Sorry, no. They can know if they care to know. The tech involved in discerning differences in patterns of keyboard and mouse inputs is (1) pretty mind blowing and (2) commercial in nature, and is already used for commercial purposes. Shit, some banks use it to sniff out unauthorized access to web banking.

The scope of the commercial spying isn't exactly secret at this point, but it blows my mind how few people are familiar with it. As I said up above, this is going to get people killed.

and that's not counting the "assault weapon" registration, and all the other nonsense.

The GSA sells all kinds of stuff. Some of it is stuff that the government wouldn't normally buy, so I figure that comes from seizures/forfeitures.

But if you have half a million sitting around and gathering dust, they have a mothballed Black Hawk helicopter for sale (as of yesterday, anyway).

162 In many a Classic Western movie, there's scene where a rightfully convicted bad guy, or a wrongly convicted good guy, is being released from some Territorial Prison or another.

Highlighted in those scenes, are the Warden handing over the newly freed man's saddle, tack, gunbelt and gun(s).

Sometimes with an admonishment from the Warden to not get into further trouble with the guns, sometimes not.

But always, with the restoration of the true symbol of a free man. Armaments.

The loss of the Right to Arms post imprisonment, was I believe, a concurrent artifact of the Jim Crow era, and enacted for exactly all of those wrong reasons.

So, what those laws are really saying is "A: imprison the maximum number of young black men.", and "B: thus deny a significant percentage of the black population the right to arms, forevermore."

And yet, they rally large percentages of the black population to be anti-gun.

Go figure.
