Posted on 12/04/2012 8:01:38 AM PST by aimhigh
Nationally, firearm NICS checks broke the record in November, with 2,006,919 checks. This beat the prior December 2011 record of 1,862,327.
Diane Feinstein, Bloomberg and the rest of the gungrabbers had better remember this before it is too late.
Which is why I only purchase from individuals, cash only. (I’m not convinced, no matter what the law says, that a record isn’t being kept of every background check and firearm transaction by some shadowy government agency. So if the day ever comes where some registration or confiscations scheme is passed, that agency will suddenly “discover” that, oops, those records didn’t get destroyed like they were suppose too and they still have a record of every transaction that went through NICS).
I bet numbers like that keep them up at night trembling in terror. Essentially more firearms went into private hands in ONE MONTH, than are in the hands of every federal law enforcement officer in the nation. They aren't stupid, they must realize that when the excrement finally hits the fan their army of armed government lackeys will be swept away in a matter of days. Then there will be nothing standing between them and the people. (Which is the REAL reason they want gun control so badly...)
The Feinstein/Bloomberg types have their “retreats” already lined up,
and they will be given enough advanced warning in order to get there before the rest of us realize the “shift” is happening.
By the time the poor souls that have to actually go door to door make it to me all mine will have been lost in a boating accident.
Can you imagine the turnover rate for that job? How many would be “retired” early? If not already happening that would be the spark for CW 2. Our rank and file military won’t support (at least all the ones I know) and most of not 3/4 of police will not. That leaves boot licking feds.
The crash is going to be bloody.
The plethora of firearms in the hands of citizens is a double edged sword, but probably has a net positive result.
Without the firearms, the machete wielding thugs would have no resistance.
One of those 2,006,919 checks was for this 2 mile fascist perforator, perfectly suited to using MSM broadcast towers for targets :
I agree. I don’t think it unreasonable to assume that a record, electronic or otherwise is created and is kept, regardless of law. However, on the other hand, the admin process for tracing firearms begins with a serial numbered weapon recovered somewhere along the way (crime scene etc) then the manufacturers records indicate to whom it was shipped (distributor) then those records indicate which FFL bought it and the ATFE (which should, by the way, be a convience store) contacts the FFL (if still in business) and the bound book entry indicates when it was sold at retail or otherwise disposed of, then the form 4473 filed by month and year reflects the original retail purchaser. If the FFL is defunct, then the ATFE has to search the 4473s in gov storage, so yes, eventually all 4473s unless destroyed by other unplanned circumstances, wind up in the hands of the federales....
Buying privately is a good idea.
Anyway, that is how the lawful trace system works. They goota have the gun (with serial #) to start with.
90% of the purchasers voted for the kenyan, and will vote dem again in 2014 and 2016. Bank on it.
I share your concern. I have not been as disiplined as you.
I have made 10 AR-15s from “80%” receivers with no serial numbers.
I am not particularly skilled with tools. Very easy.
I heard a sheriff in the state of Florida talk about this very issue a few months ago, responding to a concerned email writer who basically said the same thing you are saying.
Apparently some states handle their NCIS checks exactly as if they were background checks resulting from a traffic stop, so the federal government doesn’t get information to alert them that its anything other than a traffic stop or some other type of check. I can’t provide you any more proof than what this sheriff said. But there was a firearms dealer who spoke after the sheriff who said the same thing.
It appears you are assuming that law enforcement personnel aren't purchasing personal firearms. They are.
“..The Feinstein/Bloomberg types have their retreats already lined up...”
I suspect those “retreats” are well-stocked, well-fortified and well-hidden because there is a real bad feeling out there that when the SHTF, there will be no place for those types to hide on the face of the entire planet, let alone in the USA. They’ll be looked for world-wide and once captured, they’ll probably just be turned over as feed to the hungry “unwashed masses”: The Walking Dead.
Sign me up for the first hunting trip to Gstaad.
They're already making countermoves. Just this morning I heard on FOX that in a new bill concerning the Veterans Administration; that any vet that has been judged to be incompetent to handle their own finances they shall be entered into a criminal database that will prohibit them from owning firearms. So if you can't balance your checkbook, you lose your guns? Yup. How long before they take all the behavioral health databases and do the same? So if you've ever been even mildly depressed, get ready to lose your guns... This was done during Clinton and they got 90,000 vets just banned from owning guns in one fell swoop. Congress tried to address that with a law mandating that any future such actions be done case by case and must show evidence of a legal ruling of incompetence by a judge. But this regime doesn't let little legal niceities like that stand in their way... You watch, this juggernaut has just begun to roll. Spread the word to your ping lists...
There is no corresponding spike in gun crime because these are mostly bought by and for law abiding citizens.
