Germany initiates gun registry, to barely a peep.

I'm a bit shocked that out of all citizens, German citizens would be so silent on this issue.

BERLIN — Imagine a vast registry that details every legal gun owner in the country, along with information about all of their firearms.

Now imagine the gun lobby not making a fuss about it. That’s what has happened in Germany, where a new gun database went into service at the beginning of the year.

Until recently, some records were kept on index cards across what used to be 551 separate local registries. Now, law enforcement officials can sit down at their computers and scroll through lists of owners and their guns in seconds.

Frog: The water is now just a little bit warmer. Feels good.

The Germans ought to know better than any others.

[written June, 2001]
"New research into Adolf Hitler's use of firearms registration lists to confiscate guns and the execution of their owners teaches a forceful lesson -- one that reveals why the American people and Congress have rejected registering honest firearm owners."

Fast forward to 2013: gun registration is now the rule. Watch out.

That's how it has been here in the USA for years

We were pretty quiet about it too, requested it in fact. People love tyranny.

Sy what you will, but...

The German people will go out and protest far more often than Americans.
They have ousted GMO's!
You really can't make a stark comparison. Different cultures.

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Most brave Europeans were killed in WW1 & WW2

Mostly cowards there now I guess.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

Damned to repeat history?


maybe China will invade them now and not us

cuz im not given up my constitution

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

It will indeed be a nwo.

The entire earth will be ruled by the elite, who know, feel and think better than we. Rather than brighten the beacon of Liberty, Freedom, it will be easier and more profitable to regulate the masses by a few chosen who sit behind a screen and distribute punishment by way of drones.

If this is what is meant by "thousand years of peace", I don't want any part of it. So help me God.
