Skip to comments.MILLER: Every D.C. firearm owner to be fingerprinted to renew gun registry
Posted on 11/25/2013 3:18:00 PM PST by Texas Fossil
The 1,800 or so criminals who have killed, robbed or assaulted innocent people with guns in the District of Columbia so far this year were hauled into the police station to be fingerprinted, photographed and to undergo a criminal-background check.
Now, legal gun owners who have committed no crime are getting the exact same treatment. That is neither constitutional, nor fair.
The latest gun-control scheme that starts on Jan. 1 will force every legal firearm owner in the nations capital to go in person to police headquarters to renew their registration certificates.
The Metropolitan Police Department filed proposed rules last week to enact this absurd law, and citizens have until Dec. 15 to comment on the regulations.
To avoid becoming a felon, anyone with a gun registered before 2011 will have to go to police headquarters to be fingerprinted, photographed, provide proof of address, pay a fee and confirm they may still legally possess the firearm. The Firearms Registration Section will then create a new registration certificate now in the form of an ID card for each gun.

Virginia will be next to implement more un Consitutional gun grabbing laws. Perhaps that will become the site of the push back from The People.
I was fingerprinted for my CHL, also various professional licenses. All part of the background check run through the FBI.
It’s well past time for citizens of this country to tell the self-serving, rapacious, greedy and corrupt political class to shove their unconstitutional, utopian laws up their unconstitutional utopian buckets. I for one will never be loyal to a government who would deprive me of my personal weapons.
Who would consent to be a "citizen" there?
Are they fingerprinting all the women who get abortions and inscribing their names in a registry?
I mean, these folks are simply exercising their Constitutional rights, no? One expressed in 2nd Am. and the other ‘wover of whole cloth (i.e. ‘made up’) in Roe v Wade
: to limit or restrict or encroach upon...
Me too but that is “concealed carry” which requires a background check.
These fools are talking about owning/having a firearm - a right given by God and guaranteed by 2nd Amendment.
what’s next register everyone who owns a bible?
Can they use the ID card as proof for voting?
In Texas, for CHL, must be fingerprinted. When I went to renew mine, DPS letter said I needed to give them anew, so I did; then I got a letter from DPS saying they were rejected and I needed to do it again. I’m still waiting...
It seems that a French company has the “franchises” to do the fingerprinting...go figure that one.
Hmmm ... French ‘Fingerprints’ ... sounds exciting.
A registration card for EACH firearm? Damn.....I’m gonna need a bigger wallet!
Well I DID get me this nice Obama phone.
The retards are elected by retards who want to be citizens in a retarded community - meaning they are all of the same mindset.
What other possible explanation could there be for people to voluntarily live like this?
I certainly have no explanation. I find it to be bizarre.
It’s gotta be criminals electing criminals for the benefit of criminals.
Were you fingerprinted or investigated to exercise any of your other CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS?
Who elects these retards?
