Will Congress Lay the Groundwork for Gun Confiscation?

April 17, 2011
Within the next 90 days, Congress will vote on whether to reauthorize legislation to specifically allow the government potential access to millions of gun records (4473’s).
Historically, gun registration has been a prelude to gun confiscation.  Almost 20 years ago, JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership) documented how several foreign governments in the Twentieth Century had used gun control — and quite often gun registration — to confiscate firearms.  In each case, such gun confiscation was a prelude to genocide.
Currently in the United States, the 4473 forms that gun buyers fill out are stored at gun dealers’ shops.  But provisions in the PATRIOT Act (which sunset soon) specifically allow the FBI to seize these gun records under certain conditions.
We now have a unique opportunity to make sure these dangerous provisions expire — or to exempt gun records from the reach of the government.
