That is why I voted no on that one. Although it sounds good and I agree in principle, its like you said “Who decides what a ‘gun crime’ is?” Could we all of a sudden be put on the list because of a traffic ticket and there was a 22 shell on the floor of the pickup? Especially with this group of wackos in office.

Scary that there are around 25% YES votes on most of these questions.

Yep. Exactly.

Best to vote ‘no’ and let one slip through the system, then to vote ‘yes’ and turn everyone who owns a gun into a criminal whose fate is decided by the ‘man’.

“Do you support universal background checks including guns that are sold between private parties and at gun shows?”

This is the REAL issue. This is backdoor registration. Does anyone seriously believe that background check information will not go into a data base? That the “non-existent” data base will not be used for confiscation at some later point?

If confiscation is successful, can the “final solution” to the gun violence problem be far behind?

Agreed.

I voted unsure. Problem is if the POLs make sane things gun crimes, we would be putting the nation on a no buy list.

COM/DEMS do not value truth, only subjection.

Teachers and school administrators of course! Anyone making a pop tart gun will be put on the list right next to Jared Lee Loughner.

“No” wins on every question but the “gun offender registry.”

That would be redundant. If someone commits a crime with a gun, he has what is called a “felony criminal record,” and no additional REGISTRATION is required. Database flags on those folks would give them all the information that they would need as to who and how many people committed crimes with guns.

From the voice of history:

For the good of the people:
1. Registration
2. Confiscation
3. Genocide

Exactly right, I could support a gun offender registry if we had just and resonable gun laws in the US and all states counties and cities, but we don’t and things are getting worse.

It would appear that “we the people” once agin have more of an understanding of the Constitution than do the idiots that populate government.

“resonable gun laws in the US”

That’s the ‘trap’.

There should be NO gun laws in the U.S.

‘Shall Not Be Infringed’ has meaning..

Crimes and penalties stand alone on their own.

Murder is still murder, whether done by a knife, brick, baseball bat or GUN...

The answer is ‘no registry, no infringement’.

Wasn’t expressing myself properly, anything I would describe as a gun crime or violation of a “reasonable gun law” would already be a crime. The only “reasonable gun law” I can think of is it shall be a crime to infringe or attempt to infringe by legislation or any other means a citizens second Amendment Rights.

The globalists who give Zero his working orders are listening to us too. I’m afraid their next trick will be a push for the collapse of the dollar to swing people in line.
