Authorities in Maryland are set to target 110,000 citizens with gun confiscation under a new law that would link the state’s gun registry with its criminal database, with new troopers set to be hired to enforce door to door visits of illegal gun owners.

Maryland State Police complain that there is no way for them to identify gun owners who have been convicted of felonies, meaning they can’t check if weapons have been relinquished in accordance with state law.

75% of people against banning handguns and growing.

The firearm manufacturer Smith & Wesson is up as much as 18% after reporting better than expected earnings and 7% revenue growth. The gains were driven by a 30% growth in handgun sales.

If you carry a concealed carry permit, realize the weapon is registered.

In the case of certain "assault" rifles, if these letters were sent to Connecticut residents, one has to ask the question how the state knows what kind of weapons an individual purchased.

They know because in order to purchase a weapon from a gun dealer, the gun dealer has to fill out federal form 4473. It requires an individual's name, address, birth date, government issued ID, NICS background check, make, model and serial number of the weapon purchased, and a signed affidavit stating the purchaser is eligible to purchase the weapon. A copy of this form must be kept by the gun dealer for 20 years.

No wonder the State of Connecticut is requiring all weapon sales from 1994-2014 be registered again by the individual. Authorities can only track gun sales back 20 years. Private sales are far more difficult to track, unless the state requires ammo to be registered and tracked. New York's safe act:

Ammunition sales.

Effective January 15, 2014, sellers of ammunition must (1) register with the New York State Police, (2) run any buyer through a State-created review of disqualifiers to ensure that the buyer is not prohibited by law from possessing ammunition, and (3) keep records of sales that are electronically accessible to the State. The NY SAFE Act also bans direct internet sales of ammunition.

NEVER register your Guns!

NEVER register your Guns!

NEVER register your Guns!

NEVER EVER register your Guns!

Jefferson was right!

"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." - Thomas Jefferson

Smoke and Mirrors...

Watch my right hand (going after the suppose criminals) while the left hand is taking guns from legal gun owners. It is just like the Federal Income Tax in the beginning going after the "suppose rich people" and look what happen with that situation. More examples would be the FRB, FDA, EPA, Chamber of Commerce, ATF, and the list goes on...

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win!"

"The belief is worthless if the fear of social and physical punishment overrides the belief."

This will end just like Waco did.

They will come in force, with militarized weapons, troop transports, snipers and swat. They will breach homes and the public will cheer, right to the point that a child is killed. They will then and only then back off a bit, but the politicians in their ivory towers that send young, dumb, anti American storm troopers in like the SS in Germany will not be harmed, they will laugh as families that defied their divine power will be brutalized if lucky and killed if not.

This will be a very defining moment in this nation when the first group of traitors attack a family of criminals; made so by legislative fiat, are gunned down protecting their inalienable right to keep and bear arms. Those wearing the badge that would conduct such unlawful acts will get away with murder no doubt, and then there will be a few citizens that get their ounce of flesh as well. Unless some cooler heads prevail this could go; as I predict, very badly for all involved.

Then to inflate the issue, there has been talk on the web of others from out of state coming in and assisting these families. Imagine the result of WACO had 500 armed citizens came in and arrested the officers who murdered the women and children before they had a chance to do so. This is the type of thing that is being passed around many of the 2nd amendment sites, and I assume is what should be expected when all else in the constitution has been destroyed, it si their right and duty to do so, and so it begins...

Always remember:
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." ~ Samuel Adams
If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

Remember WACO!

They murdered the Davidians on live television and most "Americans" applauded them and even encouraged them to do it.

That WAS the defining moment you talk about. Every supposed right was trashed without a doubt at that time. Everything since then is just them working off of that precedence.

It's too late for any kind of organized resistance. We will each have to face our own "WACO" alone. Just like they did.

Also remember that the people

Also remember that the people in the FBI and ATF responsible for the disaster got promotions.

THIS

One day DP'ers will wake up and understand there are more lazy, good for nothing (but voting) statist that will let jack booted thugs beat your children because "John Stewart said guns are bad". These upstanding citizens brigade WILL NEVER materialize.

Too many sheeple, your gonna have to walk that lonesome valley by yourself. Liberty exist in YOUR hands, not your neighbor's.

.

...and it will be done under cover of the Black Mask...

...just wait...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

This isn't gun confiscation.

This isn't gun confiscation. This is getting guns out of the hands of criminals. AND everybody is for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Right?

There will be no GUN GRAB. There will only be more and more definitions of criminal. That is how they do it and no one will rise up to stop them because it is the "other guy" who is the criminal.

We have sat by while all of our supposed guaranteed rights have been stripped from us and no one has risen up to defend those rights. Why the hell does anyone think the right to bear arms will be any different.

It's like expecting the S to HTF all at once when in fact it has been hitting the fan for a long time now.

I have a different opinion

why are the rights of people allowed to be infringed after they have served their time? Their debt to society is paid in full. They have a right to protect themselves just like the rest of us.

You wont get any argument from me

I think all post sentencing restrictions should be eliminated. That includes all voting and gun ownership rights as well as eliminating the horrible sex offenders registry.

When someone does their time then it should be done. Period.

Agreed

This is another reason why I am against the death penalty: no room for forgiveness

I wouldn't go that far.

I do agree that we should always err on the side of life but I think their is a time, reasons and purpose for the death penalty.

When implemented justly.

For sake of debate

When is time-served and/or forgiveness not justly applied?

That's why I added the "justley applied"?

I fully understand your point. Our justice system is corrupted. It shows partiality to wealth, it sets blanket mandatory sentencing which denies true justice, it enforces laws arbitrarily, etc...

In answer to your question. Very often.

But again as I like to say "We don't want to throw the baby out with the bath water. I don't have a problem with punishment that is justly applied. I know it isn't always so that's why I say it is better to err on the side of life cause it is better for a guilty man to go free than an innocent man to die.

But in some cases there is no doubt and any previous injustice shouldn't automatically exonerate the guilty? I hope I said that right.

Different angle

The above still doesn't address why someone shouldn't be spiritually forgiven by another human being; does your argument profess that there are cases when a soul should never be?

Some crimes cannot be forgiven

without repentance.

Even God's forgiveness requires repentance on our part.

>

Agreed that repentance is inauthentic without conscientious choice, and that forgiveness is not justly earned without it.

Accordingly, my issue with the Death Penalty is that it permanently removes the virtue of choosing repentance

In the end

if the person had a heart worthy of repentance then our ultimate judge will know that.

My question is where is the line for you? If someone breaks into your house and is brutally raping your wife or daughter what do you do? Forgive him and let him continue, hoping he will repent at some time in his life before he dies? Do you allow someone to kill "without mercy" because they might repent?

What happens if you forgive an unrepentant soul who goes out and kills again? And you forgive him again but he kills again? Then aren't you as much to blame for the murders as he? That's a serious question.

What about the person who was murdered? Did they have time to repent for things they may have done in their lives? Think about it.

When Stephen was being stoned he forgave those people because he knew that they mistakenly thought they were doing God's will. Some people have no intention of doing God's will and they dig their own grave, in more ways than one.

I understand your quandary but at some point a person has to reap what they have sown.

>

1) "In the end if the person had a heart worthy of repentance then our ultimate judge will know that"

Agreed while as human beings with a connection to the Divine through conscience, we are capable of determining absolution as well

2) "where is the line for you?"

Conscionable choice

3) "If someone breaks into your house and is brutally raping your wife or daughter what do you do?"

Use whichever means necessary to diffuse the situation, including lethal force within a life-threatening situation.
Keep in mind that the intentions of an assailant are unknown while committing a crime, and this is different than a court setting where a jury assumedly has determined the culpability of a defendant after the incident

4) "forgive him"

If worthy of such tendered grace, I do reserve that dignified prerogative

5) "let him continue"

Obviously not

6) "hoping he will repent at some time in his life before he dies?"

If the individual has been justly sentenced to incarceration (which I also see as a means to self-examination), yes.
Let me conversely ask: have you never done anything wrong in your life, where you realized your mistake and sought redemption?

7) "Do you allow someone to kill "without mercy" because they might repent?"

No. I am speaking to how an individual addresses one's own culpability both legally and personally

8) "What happens if you forgive an unrepentant soul who goes out and kills again?"

In principle, an unrepentant individual would not be worthy of such a gift, and that again would be the function of jail.
Let me additionally ask: in your opinion, what would prompt an unrepentant individual to seek a higher moral?

9) "..Then aren't you as much to blame for the murders as he?"

No because ultimately, each individual is responsible for their own conscience.
Unfortunately in my view, such an unprincipled claim is also the rationalization for mandated insurance or taxation etc

10) "What about the person who was murdered?

This raises an important but incidental point IMO where certain policies (ex. refusing mandated insurance) should not be prosecutable if conscientious agency is not violated

11) "Did they have time to repent for things they may have done in their lives?"

The legal premise here is that the victim is innocent

12) "Some people have no intention of doing God's will and they dig their own grave, in more ways than one"

Granted while the virtue of a civil society honors innocence until proven guilty

13) "I understand your quandary but at some point a person has to reap what they have sown"

Are you saying then that 'an eye for an eye' is properly civil?

This could go on for a while

But I think it is obvious that we agree that the repentant soul is worthy of forgiveness.

In answer to your other questions I will let you answer that with an answer you just gave me.

"The legal premise here is that the victim is innocent."

I must comment on one other thing you said. "Keep in mind that the intentions of an assailant are unknown while committing a crime, and this is different than a court setting where a jury assumedly has determined the culpability of a defendant after the incident"

If by the time it has gone to trial an assailant STILL has shown no remorse, except at being caught, then it is all the more fitting that he receive the full recompense for his actions.

And to be honest I think if there were true repentance then the death penalty would be welcomed. But that would be subjective I guess.

Please let's not get into the arbitrary laws such as the mandate which only serve to make my blood boil. :-)

>

I see that we can certainly agree to disagree, while there is a lot of common ground (inc. the frustration of mandates lol)

In any case, thanks for the food-for-thought

*friendly handshake*

This will end well

Two scenarios come to mind:

1) Criminal in possession of gun :
A) No knock raid
B) Criminal grabs guns and opens fire on cops

2) Resident legally in posession of gun
A) No knock raid
B) Resident grags guns and opens fire on intruders to protect family

Either way people die when there was no need for them to die.

Seriously, is the the best cops can come up with? Breaking into a tight, enclosed area with weapons drawn? I'm not a strategist and I can come up with a much simpler solution right off the top of my head to catch a criminal or two.

A) Patiently wait at the end of the block for the suspect to leave the house.
B) Pull them over and arrest them.

Granted this assumes the cops aren't going to just open fire like they are prone to do when they so much as suspect a gun might be within a 100 mile radius.

EDIT :

I'm not implying citizens who legally are in posession of weapons are criminals just because of this law I'm just pointing out the severe stupidity of current police tactics. The cops really need to read the "100 things I'd Do If I Were a Villian" list and follow the advice about having a 5 year-old appraise their plan.

The police will quickly adapt their tactics

after they realize that the laws they are following aren't bullet proof and they suffer some casualties. The door banging down will stop and they will cordon off any area and lay siege to the home. Orders will be given to come out of the building and if immediate compliance isn't realized specialized tear gas will be "inserted". You know the kind used in Waco as well as with the Black Panthers back in the sixties and seventies. The kind that "accidentally" explodes into a fire ball and leaves no survivors. If I were in CT., NY or Maryland you can bet your bottom dollar I'd have chain link across any openings in my walls. Even that measure can be countered by using the kind of armament they used at Waco but are they ready for the nightly news to show just how far they have progressed to militarization when they are operating in a neighborhood? I can see it now, "we're done here, lets get next door".
For some reason these guys are jumping the gun. They were well on the way to demonizing and having the masses view gun owners as knuckle dragging miscreants a mere step above pedophiles. I'm curious about what has caused them to ratchet up the pressure and accelerate their campaign? The banning of weapons from felons was working fine, the last I read over 53 percent of adult males have a record by the time they are 23.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
