Posted on 12/19/2001 5:10:23 AM PST by E.G.C.
It seems the Demorats will stop at nothing to push through their special political agenda even by any shameful and disgusting means neccessary such as exploiting the awful events of 9/11.
This is evident in the calls being made by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and others to open up the National Instant Check System (NICS) to the FBI and local law enforcement agencies for personal data on law-abiding gun owners.
The law which provided for development of this system however says that it could only be opened for the auditing of it's maintenace. That is what the law clearly says and yet the Demorats want that to go out the window. This is gun registration, pure and simple. To say otherwise is stupid, idiotic and foolish.
Now mind you, this is the same party that is slavishly concerned about the civil liberties of the perpatraitors of 9/11. Yet, they seem rather eager to violate privacy rights of honest, decent law-abiding citizens.
There clearly seems to be an ulterior motive for this. Keenedy and Schumer have a vision of banning private ownership of firearms. As I'm sure many of you are well aware, there have been cases well gun control laws have been followed up with a complete roundup and extermination of political dissidents. There was an article by Paul Harvey posted here eariler this year which highlighted 7 countries where gun control laws were followed up with the complete roundup and extermination of certain groups of people.
It seems like the Democrats are more interested in playing speech and thought police than in going after the terrorists. My question for Schumer and Kennedy is which group of citizens do they wish to have exterminated.
