I’ve been warning for over a year now that Arizona handing over legal citizens data in Arizona state databases to the feds will result in gun registration.
From my June 18, 2010 SA post:
“Since I need a driver’s license to purchase a gun from a dealer, BATFE would finally have its long-coveted tool to impose gun control on targeted groups — particularly under a liberal anti-gun administration.
From my April 18, 2010 SA post:
Based on GOA’s assessment above and the fact that the Arizona MVD can voluntarily hand over your drivers license data to the feds (DPS and CCW data too?), could SB1070 inadvertently lead to gun registration?
The risk here is too great. In our rush to pass strict anti-illegal immigration measures, have we not paid attention to the greater concern? Protecting our state sovereignity and our individual independence from the federal government?
Today from DownsizeDC.org, a national conservative PAC:
This infamous provision, Section 215, is a direct assault on your Fourth Amendment rights because it allows the FBI to obtain personal information about you, without a warrant and without your knowledge.
In their zeal to “get those illegals,” some “conservatives” accepted anything that Kris Kobach of FAIR wrote when he and FAIR wrote 1070 and other anti-illegal immigration laws INCLUDING SELLING OUT THE PRIVATE DATA OF LAW ABIDING ARIZONA CITIZENS!
Well, as they tend to do, here come the chickens back to their roost. This data in the hands of Homeland Security and the FBI as provided by Kris Kobach and Russell Pearce in 1070 now provides McCain and cronies with the technicals they need to close the “gun loopholes.”
The data turned over to the feds by the state of all state citizens data in state databases *WILL BE USED* whether now or shortly in the future to do exactly that – build gun registries.
Then, as we all know, shortly thereafter come the confiscations and jailings.
Here’s an example… anyone ever figure out exactly WHO would make the determination as to a newborn’s birth certificate status or HOW they would do it? Answer: US Deparement of Homeland Security and using SB1070-style national ID checks OF CITIZEN PARENTS against Homeland Security databases. A “failed” check is someone who is NOT found in the national ID database. Meaning, presumably, all citizens ARE IN the national ID database!
I wonder where in the constitution it is that says the federal government should keep a national ID database on all US citizens? Hmmm…… I can’t find it in my copy.
Will that database be used for gun registration? IT ALREADY IS!
This is why you NEVER NEVER NEVER attempt to trade liberty for “security”, under any circumstances including “gitting those illegals”. Because then you will have neither liberty nor security.
Want to stop illegal immigration: SECURE THE $%#*&^*% BORDER and quit surveilling law abiding Arizona citizens!
