Mandatory Registration: Be Realistic In Your Thinking

Rawles' Survivalblog on Monday had an essay on steps to mitigate the possible problem of mandatory firearms registration imposed by the Hopey-Changey crowd now settling into power in Washington.

I have almost-limitless respect for what Mr. Rawles has done over the past fifteen years to awaken and prepare Americans for the very things we are living through today.

But on this particular point, I'd suggest a bit more thinking.

If the Obamanation foolishly chooses to enact mandatory Federal registration requirements, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans -- men, women, and young folks -- who will view that step as a "weapons free" command.

Many other Americans will reach the same conclusion once the first confiscation raids begin.

What? You think there won't be enforcement actions taken by the Feds and their local minions against non-compliant individuals?

Reliable sources in the past two weeks have reported that the BATFE is in the mid-to-late stages of a multi-year information gathering process based on their examination of various FFLs' business records, along with the 4473 transfer forms.

The sources, each of whom are intimately involved in the production and sale of components for various "rifles of military utility", both report extensive BATFE data collection from customer lists and other records.

Why do you think BATFE is doing that?

Why do you think one BATFE agent told one of the sources that the project was scheduled to be completed by 2010?

Why do you think Brian Puckett said "I will not register" when California enacted its AWB registration scheme in the late Nineties?

Folks, we live in a post-legal, post-political world, where tax cheats are confirmed as the nation's chief tax collectors, voter-fraud organizations receive Federal funding, and Republican party chairmen support bans on "assault weapons".

Do you really think that in such a world, burying or otherwise caching your guns is the morally correct answer?

Do you really think that it is the tactically prudent answer?

Face it: There's no way out but through.

And "through" means that someone, somewhere is going to use force once this thing gets a few steps further down the pike.

When the front doors of high-profile RKBA folks start to explode off their hinges at oh-dark-thirty, it's a wake-up call to every freedom-lover in this country.

The next steps are up to each of us.

Audentes fortuna juvat.

Fortune favors the bold.

Knowing the BATFE, I don't doubt for a moment that they're cataloging gun owners from 4473s and customer lists.

We'll be waiting.

To my treasonous government:

I am NOT in a good mood at all...DON'T F**K WITH ME OR YOU WILL REGRET IT!

Time we III's make our own list of the home addresses and other "contact" information for these traitors and PUBLISH it widely.

To repeat what a wise individual has said, "They do not want to take your firearms, they want to kill you".

Google Earth .kmz every single address possible of ATF agents, their field offices, FEMA camps and the wimp political backers they have. They have a list, so should the American people.

I did not serve 2 decades in the U. S. Armed Forces to tolerate this communistic B.S. I rmember my Oath, and simply because I retired doesn't mean I've forgotten nor forsaken it. "They" made 2 mistakes: (1) "they" let me stay in, and (2) "they" let me get out. Bring it on!

Registration has only one use: To expedite future restriction & eventually, confiscation.
It happened here in the UK & it WILL happen in the US without a general refusal to comply.
Those who desire such things must learn that no means NO.

I've just read this for the first time - today. Let'em try. I do believe that the vast majority of citizens would rather NOT "go to guns" but if provoked . . .
