How to Ban Private Gun Ownership in America

It can be done. You just can’t do it in one fell swoop. You must do it in steps.

You take the first step in 1934 by making some kinds of guns bad, requiring them to be registered with the government and levying a special tax on them. This is to establish the idea that while some guns are OK, other guns are bad. This will be handy later on.

You take the next step in 1968. You pass laws adding more restrictions on gun ownership and sales, most notably establishing the requirement of a government-issued license for a business to sell guns. This will be handy later on.

Your next step is in 1993, when you pass a law creating certain classes of citizens who are prohibited from possessing guns, as well as adding a requirement that licensed dealers (created in 1968) run each prospective purchaser through an FBI background check before selling them a gun. This will be handy later on.

It is now “later on.” It is 2019, and none of this has had any impact on criminal gun ownership. Although that is not the true objective, you point this out and insist that we must take yet another step.

So far you have managed to outlaw certain types of guns and certain types of gun owners, and to require that sales from licensed dealers obtain government permission before proceeding. The problem is that citizens are still allowed to transfer (some) guns to each other without the participation of a licensed dealer (1968) or a background check (1993).

This next step is to pass laws requiring “universal background checks.” (2019) This will now close the loop and ensure that no guns of any type (good or bad) are transferred to any citizen (good or bad) without government permission. And although some would say this is a “good first step,” they are now only two moves away from the end game.

From AWR Hawkins at Breitbart News.

The next step is to point out that “universal background checks” have been ineffective in reducing crime (though they were not intended to reduce crime) since you don’t know who in America owns all the guns. You can’t tell if people are complying with the background check law without gun registration. So you pass that law…to “close the loophole”…and now you have everything you need. All the pieces are in position to take the final step and eliminate private gun ownership in America…at least by law abiding citizens.

 

Let’s review:

We have established that some guns are bad, and the government decides what those are. (1934)

We have decided that some people are bad and prohibited from gun ownership, and the government decides who they are. (1993)

We require government permission to obtain a gun. (2019?)

The government has a list of guns and gun owners. (?)

Remember, every time they pass another law, it is referred to as a “good first step”…right before the next one.

  1. Remember Germany in 1939.
    Registration led to confiscation to extermination. Sometimes out the office back door right after the person surrendered their gun.

  2. Connecticut passed a law requiring the registration of “assault weapons” . . . 13% complied.

    New York passed a law requiring the registration of “assault weapons” . . . 4% complied.

    The ONE PURPOSE registration serves is to FACILITATE CONFISCATION!

    NEVER register your firearms.

    The intent of the Second Amendment is NOT that you surrender your firearms to the political party that is taking your freedoms – The intent of the Second Amendment is that you AIM your rifles at the political party that is taking your freedoms!

    III%

  3. Lots of big talk from gun owners, “take it from my cold dead hands”, the reality is when the police or military show up at your door, who is actually going to take a bullet instead of handing over the gun.

  4. This article fails to address enforcement. 70,000,000 gun owners, minimum. How many law enforcement in local, state, federal agencies? This includes FBI, DOJ, DHS, CIA. Determine how many law enforcement are willing to die trying to enforce this garbage. Determine how many gun owners still retain possession after last law enforcement is shot trying to enforce. Conclusion: enforcement will never work.

  5. Leslie your obviously one of the Leftists out to destroy America. You and the Government will be surprised how many patriots will die before giving up their guns and many of those stupid enough to come and take them will die also. Stupid idea, the only reason to take guns from law abiding Citizens is so the Left can impose tyranny on our citizens. Socialists are not your friend, you need to take your head out where ever you store it and look up facts about gun owners and shootings and stop listening to the diarrhea that CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS spew and learn something for a change. If you think the Socialists are really concerned with shootings your a total Fool, they can not control an armed society that is what this is all about.
    The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting, it was written so the Citizens can defend them selves against a tyrannical Government such as the new Socialist Democrats will attempt to ram down our throats.

  6. There are law enforcement agencies that see these laws as unconstitutional and refuse to try to enforce them. They need our support. They are trying to take our freedom, our rights and do away with our constitution. I was born free and I’ll die free. No one should be giving up any of their rights for any reason. Government isn’t for the people and when they come for everything you’ve ever worked for, just to give it to someone that doesn’t belong here. Politicans live behind walls with armed security. You are your own first responder and security. God bless America.

  7. Amen! The whole purpose of the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments of our Constitution, is to provide us, we the people, ways to protect ourselves, our families, our nation from people like George Soros, Nancy Pelousie, that Clinton witch and other democrap turds. These are the people who will cause the destruction of the America that so many good people have fought and died for. Our country is not perfect, far from it. But good people have been doing many good things to try to make the USA a little better then it used to be each and every day. And little by little, step by step this country has come a long way toward becoming the best in the world. Our freedoms and our way of life have not come to us without cost, great cost. Many, uncountable numbers, have given all for what we have.
    I’ll be damned if I’ll stand by and let some fast talking, back stabbing low life rip any part of our Bill of Rights out of the Constitution and claim it is for our own good. Hell no!! Not after all those heros willingly gave what ever it took to pay for those freedoms.
    I don’t want to die and I don’t want to kill and I sure ain’t a hero, but I swear I’ll do what ever I can to keep these modern day FOOL IDIOTS (call them what you wish) from taking this country and turning it into an open pit toilet. That is exactly where I believe Soros and the Democrats are heading for. It ain’t going to happen, at least not without a fight and I don’t mean name calling.

  8. Politicans want only one thing which is getting reelected. If the millions of gun owners would vote and support the NRA there wouldn’t be any gun laws. I know plenty of gun owners who vote democratic.

  9. You’re an idiot. Do you have any idea how many guns and how much ammo is out there? And who exactly is going to go door to door to confiscate the weapons? You?

  10. They don’t have enough manpower to take every gun at once. When the word gets out about what is happening, the people who still have guns will outnumber the confiscators over 10 to one and then the confiscators’ guns will be confiscated. If they want a Civil War the liberals are mostly unarmed and will fare badly.

  11. You don’t fight them at your door you fool.
    You’re not good at this are you?
    You really don’t have a clue.
    After seeing how the standard of living was in the USSR and its satellite countries, your way of thinking will have us all living in the UPSR – United Progressive Socialist Union – sister union to the EuroSocialist Union!
    Constitutional rights and American Freedoms are worth fighting for, however you will not be in charge of strategy.

  12. In “old Dixie” the permit to purchase was a common feature. You visit the sheriff and he issues a statement attesting to your “good character” and armed with this, you went to the gun store and bought a gun.
    Of course if you were of the “politically prohibited pigmentation” you probably didn’t get the sheriffs blessing and if you did, the gun store was still under no obligation to serve you.

  13. You jackass, the police and military are with US and part of US. WE will be the ones putting Liberals in concentration (adjustment) camps. You know , all those FEMA houses with razor wire around them. If you think that the military or law enforcement are behind you (oh ,maybe behind you in a different angle) just wait.

  14. Nah, I think Chuck is right. Once the shooting starts it will be the LEOs who suddenly get interested in being somewhere else, or calling in sick, or losing their registration target list for the day.

    Once the gloves come off, plenty of REAL Americans will be shooting the politicians, judges, bureaucrats, LEOs, and other ancillary personnel that are crucial for something like this to go down. There is probably 100 million firearms owners…if only 1% say screw this and the jig is up on confiscation.

    One more thing. This is America. We do not have a history of surrendering like the French or being polite like the British or just following orders like the Germans. No…we rebelled to obtain our freedom and we will do it again.

  15. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918 – 2008) was a political dissident and critic of communism. Like millions throughout history, he suffered under a government established forced-labor camp system; the Soviet gulags. Regarding that experience, he wrote:
    And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956”.

  16. Military won’t do that. You’d know this if you knew anything at all about our military, which you so obviously don’t. And most (nearly all) law enforcement officers wouldn’t either. Get a grip, snowflake. But start with getting a clue.

  17. Amen! To bad the majority will just hand over all of their guns and ammo, WHEN this CORRUPT CRIMNAL UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT “tells them to do so.”
    In 2019 the majority of these Pathetic A-Muricans are SPINELESS and WEAK MINDED and therefore Will do ANYTHING this Freedom Hating Tyrannical Government says.
    Just take a look at the last 20 years at how just many of Our So Called Freedoms were taken away and are PERMANENTLY GONE FOREVER because SPI LESS AMERICANS are to Damn Dumb/Stupid to even remotely Realize or Understand that “giving up your freedom” does NOT give you PROTECTION. Instead it gives you way Less Protection from criminals and all law enforcement. AND FOR THE RECORD “Cops are not obliged to help YOU at all ever, because they serve the Laws & NOT the citizens of the United States. People again the” majority of Americans” are also just to freaking Stupid to UNDERSTAND these Realities, which will be the END of America we once knew 59+ years ago.
    It’s time for a revolution in fact it’s LONG Past Time for a Modern Revolution.
    Thomas Jeffersons Statements prove WHY e erg American should be armed 24- 3(5 days a year. They should be armed EVERYWHERE they go in America. The murder and corruption by law enforcement would end nearly overnight when they realize Americans are better armed then the crooked law enforcement is.
    I don’t see how they can say that Anyone CAN’T HAVE A GUN. Especially when you’re GUARANTEED the right to ANY Firearm under the SECOND AMENDMENT of the United States Constitution.
    By them saying who and who can’t have firearms or who can and can’t vote shows you the Constitution’s not worth wiping your ass with ANY LONGER. And THAT is WHY America needs a revolution to go back to the ONCE LONG AGO GREAT COUNTRY 5HAT AMERICA ONCE 2AS BUT WILL NEVER BE GREAT AGAIN.
    America is no longer ‘great” because all they want to do is control everybody under their (Police State) and they want to totally burn the Constitution. It’s a fact that’s what your current/modern Politicians are doing Daily!!
    Just like that Half Breed non-american citizen called Obama. Americans are too stupid to realize he wasn’t and still isn’t a American citizen . Go on YouTube and look since he’s left the White House he said more than once he was born in Kenya and the joke’s on America and Americans. That scumbag Muslim didn’t everything he could do to destroy this country. And Americans did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the dismantling of America under 8 years ago oBastard. AKA:Obama……

  18. Big Mouth Losers like YOURSELF and your WORTHLESS family 👪 will be put into FEMA CAMPS. Enjoy your stay you freaking STUPID SpinLESS FOOL! I’M SURE YOUR ONE OF THE SHEEPLE HEADED TO THE GOVERNMENT SLAUGHTER THAT’S COMING…

  19. Can’t wait to see your kind perish quickly if this country ends up in a cival war over Gun confiscation. Because it’s going to happen and a lot more civilians have guns than the military or law enforcement and they know it. Enforcement will never work and never be tolerated by true patriotic Americans that love America and the Constitution!

  20. Leslie Smith- Nome de Plume? Clean out your headgear. Dimsocialists are cut from an entirely different mindset than Conservative Constitutionalists- and while your kind think that Tyrannical Gov’t is the answer to all human problems ( yeah, like in Venezuela , Cuba, the former UssR, etc, etc, etc, ) there are those who will stand up to tyranny regardless of personal cost. An excellent example gave rise to this Nation. Once started, there would be a Cascade of Resistance, causalities would happen, and your kind would be shocked, SHOCKED to learn that more folks than you believed do NOT feel as you do. I would not look forward to such, but would look at it as the sort of thing that would be stupid for Dimsocialists to initiate- sort of like smacking a Hornets nest with a baseball bat- you get what should have known to expect.

  21. Suggested reading: Unintended Consequences by John Ross. Right up there in predicting the future with Atlas Shrugged.

  22. I agree that we have way more gun owners than the U.S. has military. And I agree that their are many gun owners that will fight to keep their guns, but who will organize the gun owners to be effective against the law enforcement and military? When we go into a civil war it will be chaotic and there either be much infighting within the gun owner groups to take what they don’t have. Our own inability to work together as a military will likely be our undoing.

  23. It’s better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees!
    -Emiliano Zapata Salazar 1910

    Folks like you always accuse Patriots of “Big Talk”. Maybe the sheeple that graze in NYC and the other big city shit-holes will always roll-over, but those of us that don’t live there never will.

    When the the blood of tyrants and Patriots alike run in the streets, and their bodies are stacked like cord-wood, perhaps someone with tyrannical leanings will hear the cries of the population saying, “ENOUGH!!”, smarten up, and halt the denial of Freedom.

  24. You are correct…look at Waco…dead women and children. That is why militia mobilized to Oregon…to prevent it happening again….and it didn’t… Feds backed down.

  25. And the reality is that it takes real Patriots willing to take that bullet for others to stand against such tyranny. our fore fathers worked so hard to gain our freedoms why as a country are we allowing this to continue. I mean i get it really, the one that throws the first physical punch so to say is the one thats percieved in the wrong. (Selfdefense)

  26. Leslie,

    It will never come to that. 2nd amendment prevents that. Militsry won’t do it cause they take an oath to uphold the constitution, which includes the 2nd amendment.

  27. I don’t know how many of you are military veterans but we took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. We defend natural given rights, NOT a person or a political entity but NATURAL RIGHTS! That oath has no expiration date. The vast majority of police officers are veterans. Once they and the current military are reminded of their Oath, the Liberal mindset in government will not survive.
    Perhaps a little tar and feathers would go a long way.

  28. There are estimated 2 million law enforcement personnel of various levels. Most are also firearms owners, many are prior service military. Neither want their guns taken.
    The FBI estimated there are over 300 million firearms privately owned in America. They also estimate there are over 100 million firearms owners. Few of whom are interested in having their private property stolen, even by the government. Nobody hates thieves more than those prepared to stop them. My suggestion, do the math.
    100 million verses 2 million. Or more accurately, 100 million verses the 250 thousand who would attempt confiscation.
