It's like this,as per the NRA ,its an Americans god given right,to bear arms. It's in the constitution .
The government stance is ,gun must be taken out of the wrong hands,but the NRAs stance is,New laws will affect people who deserve to carry guns.
Then of course there is the conspiracy of it all,wherein they are now afraid of class war ,and economic collapse,and the middle class will declare civil war .They also think there are too many of us .....and less is more .

They wants any extra guns out there gone,so the populace will be more easily subdued,if this occurs.
If that is the case,I'm all for everyone keeping their guns ...sorry .
They made the USA this way ,and they keep piling on the oppression .

Sorry, but the government's stance isn't in keeping guns out of the "wrong" hands. If that were the case, they wouldn't bother with all the stupid, ineffective gun control laws, but rather write better crime prevention laws as well as enforce strict enforcement of those laws (you know, common sense).

Yes, the NRA is a huge part of the problem. But the biggest part of the problem are fools that believe gun control will actually prevent crime. It has been proven time and again that is does not.

You say fear is all in the mind. I say you are right; for it is our imagination that makes things seem scary.
If you want to learn how to not be afraid, ask.

Really? The Soviet Union was NOT Socialist? So, they didn't call themselves the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republic? And that's all made up? Where do you think the idea behind communism came from?

So let met get this straight. The NRA is trying to stop the mandetory reporting of stolen or lost firearms?

Umm that makes no sense and how was that not a law already?

~Thanato

You'd be shocked at what should be a law that isn't.

The NRA (and yes, I used to be a member) does not have the best interest of gun owners at heart. If they did, they wouldn't support asshats like Harry Reid.

They will block any potential law that is not specifically pro-gun. Anything that holds lawful gun owners accountable, forget it. But then again, the DOJ messed up with Operation Fast and Furious, and they don't want to be accountable.... so maybe this is a big **** you to them.

There is a lot of truth to that. Gun enthusiasts usually have registered firearms and at least one that isn't, because it was inherited and was never registered or whatever. Some people keep unregistered guns in case the government comes and takes away their registered ones. It isn't difficult to get one under the table.

Register firearms, you say? (not trying to single you out, but yours is the best that fits my needs).

Not EVERY state requires firearms to be registered. Mine doesn't. Yes, there is a recorded transfer of firearms that stays with the gun store (who IS the registered owner of the firearm) for something like 7 years. Private sales, there is paperwork that needs to be done, and sent up to the feds, but that is just the same transfer record that would be done at a gun store.

not every state requires a permit or license, or regestration forms to have on you while having gun on you, that is true, but every ffl transfer is recorded, which is basicly is a regestration.
you might not have to have papaers to prove that, but it is regestered with feds at the moment ffl submits the form.

all depends what you see as regestration.

I also do not see what carrying a gun to a bar (where you usually get drunk) has to do with the basics of freedom.

Actually, LEO have been instrumental in getting that passed. It was against the law to carry a gun into any place that served alcohol, which includes most restaurants. They aren't fond of leaving their guns in their cars where they can easily be stolen. It's legal to carry a gun in them now, but you cannot even have one drink while doing so.

So based on that reasoning do you think North Korea is a democracy? And no the USSR was not socialist when compaired to the political practices of today. Just about all of Europe have socialist governments and they're nothing like the Soviet Union.


As for the OP this seems like a massively stupid move by the NRA. If anything they should be supporting the law since it would mean their members wouldn't get in trouble if their missing or stolen guns are later used in a crime.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

it isn't stupid at all. you just can't see the whole pic.nobody stops you to report stolen\lost gun, if it happens to YOU, you are responcible to report, and if you don't want to, no law will change your mind. so nra is against another useless law, that wont change anything. i agree with them 100%.they aren't pushing for a law that will prohibit you from reporting it.

You know we had this long discussion here on UM with Aroces about why just because they "called" themselves socialist does not mean they were. A common misconception. That's like believing the "democratic peoples republic of North Korea" is democratic.

I don't see it being useless. If a gun is used in a crime and has been reported stole it gives police added information to help solve the crime, instead of wasting time dealing with the gun owner. Maybe with the law some people won't be so lazy and irresponsible.

it is very simple really, you lost your gun, you report it, if you don't want to report it stolen you wont. no law will make you do so.
just like laws don't stop ppl from commiting crimes every second, what makes you think this law, or any new law will be different?

dude, your post is common missconseption.ussr was socialist country, whether you see it that way or not. they were in prosses of building comunism, the party was called comunist, but the country was socialist. ask anyone that lived there. read what comuninsm looked like in the eyes of soviets, absolutely irrelavnat how you see it.
