There are only two purposes to registering firearms.
1: To tax the owners of those arms and thereby punish them for having the arrogance to actually practice a purely theoretical right. How dare they!
2: To compile a list of firearms and their owners. Such lists have zero benefit to law enforcement. Their only possible use is as an inventory list to at some point confiscate those weapons.
There is only one purpose to confiscating weapons: the government is about to do something so bad that they fear armed rebellion. Note that this government did not fear that when they tripled the national debt, or when they shoved socialized medicine down our throats, or when they declared amnesty unilaterally for illegal imigrants, or when they routinely ignore our laws on too many issues to list them all here. So that begs the question, just what does our government intend to do to us next?
Once you follow the bread crumbs, the logic follows. No reasonable person should cooperate with any gun registration law.
Even if you never intend to use your own gun in armed rebellion or to harm any living creature. You owe it to your fellow Americans to keep the posibility of rebellion alive.
Our government was constructed on a system of checks and balances. Three coequal branches of government. Divided powers between state and federal government. Courts at all levels to overturn injustice. A constitution to prevent majority rule from trampling the rights of the minority and the ballot box to expell ne’er do wells from public office.
But the final check and balance, to be used only when the others fail, is armed rebellion. A government that does not live in fear of its own people soon loses respect for them as the ultimate check on unlimited corrupt power.
What is our government planning next? How many of us do they intend to kill?
