“Transition Team” For Obama Wants to Data Mine Firearms Transactions!

It would seem that Obama wants a central computerized Federal database of gun owners…

For anyone who buys and registers their firearms, this should send a chill up and down your spine.  The Nazis and Commies did stuff like this so they could pacify any resistance…

From Wikipedia:

A Firearms Transaction Record, or Form 4473, is a United States government form that must be filled out when a person purchases a firearm from a Federal Firearm License holder (such as a gun shop).

The Form 4473 contains name, address, date of birth, government-issued photo ID, National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) background check transaction number, make/model/serial number of the firearm, and a short federal affidavit stating that the purchaser is eligible to purchase firearms under federal law.
Director John Milius portrayed his concerns over the Form 4473 in his film Red Dawn, where it is specifically mentioned as being used by an invading Soviet army to track down civilians who own guns.

Moving Toward the Election

The Outdoor Wire

For the past few days we’ve been receiving questions from our readers asking a single question: “what about the election?” It’s a question that’s not easy to answer, because there is simply so much at stake a week from tomorrow. And it’s not all the obvious “stuff” that should worry each of us. There are issues to be decided that have the potential to impact every aspect of our lives, not just our wallets.

When James Carville wrote: “It’s the economy, stupid” on a blackboard several years ago, he solidified a focus on the single issue that assured Bill Clinton a place in the White House. Today, Carville would need considerably more words – and chalk – to cover the topics of concern we are all facing.

From the economy to the subjects we’re permitted to teach in schools next week’s ballots are filled with important issues. And not all of us face the same issues- that’s one reason I’ve not bored anyone with my personal political positions.

On the issue of firearms and rights, telling anyone who believes neither party has any interest in dialing-down gun rights at this point is not only a waste of time, it’s a hopeless cause. Despite the nastiness of the campaign, there are some elemental truths that cannot be argued.

One is that the Democratic Party, the party of my family for generations before me, has no intention of leaving that subject alone.

The Outdoor Wire has confirmed from confidential sources that the “transition team” for the Democratic candidate has already begun looking into the current approval system for firearms transactions. It seems the digital recordkeeping approval recently granted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) has piqued their curiosity. With a virtual Form 4473 in existence, we should be on the lookout for a new record-keeping initiative that will “simplify” the hassles of off-site digital record storage by allowing FFLs to, say, store the information on secure governmental servers. Of course, the government will never access the information.

[That last sentence was sarcasm, of course.]

Anyone who doesn’t realize that firearms are under fire has probably been in a coma for the past twenty years – or longer. Arguing that with someone whose opinion won’t change, however, is the equivalent of trying to teach a pig to sing – it wastes your time and irritates the pig.

So we move into other areas.

The economy is in the tank – and the bottom of the tank may be deeper than any of us realized. That doesn’t mean we can’t come back, but a working definition of insanity might include believing Washington is capable of governing. Not being able to govern yourself is a pretty good indication of being disqualified to govern others.

Their profligate spending won’t end until the rest of us run out of money or wise up and send them back home. I’m not betting on the latter.

In California, the test-bed for most extreme legislation, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and Farm Sanctuary are quietly (for them) pushing Proposition 2, a measure that would outlaw current farm methods of animal handling. Having learned their lessons the hard way, they’re going door-to-door canvassing and promoting Proposition 2 rather than showing up naked, tossing paint on people or protesting with bullhorns. HSUS head Wayne Pacelle has learned there are more effective ways to advance his agenda, including using “animal protection” instead of “animal rights.”

As the HSUS has moved away from openly expressing a desire to eliminate meat from American diets, they’re finding it easier to move in that direction in baby steps. As one of the Proposition 2 leaders put it “we’ve learned to present things in a way that resonates with the public…But we’re less strident…we don’t say you’re wrong and you shouldn’t do it.”

The messages haven’t changed, just the delivery methodology.

With just over a week to go before an election that may truly be a defining moment, there’s still only one message that matters. Learn about your candidates, your ballot and the issues approaching next week. Then, get out there and cast your vote based on your own research and opinion.

After all, none of us is as smart as all of us.

    Thanks that just doubled the amount of ammo I have to buy this weekend.

  2. Ronin Says:

    Data mine away, I have bought, sold and traded firearms for my entire life. I could not tell you where any of them went. Good luck finding um. I even registered one – once. Damn shame in my day all we needed was cash and a handshake.

    Naturally, I own no firearms now those damn things can be dangerous. I wouldn’t want any of them around. (Just in case, Obama reads this)

  3. Leatherneck Says:

    All of my firearms got stolen today. Can you believe it?

    What’s this world coming to?

  4. az_conservative Says:

    If we get another stimulus check, I’m buying ammo. Of course, I don’t actually own any guns, but the idea is to stimulate the economy by buying stuff, right?

  5. Ronin Says:

    I am predicting a rash of gun thefts if they crown Obama. Naturally, all the owners will be busy so none will file a police report ;-). And I’m betting a few of the cops will think the owners made it all up but a simple search (once they get a warrant) will clearly show the guns are gone .

    Maybe I’ll post a few instructions on the art of caching. Just in case a thoughtful gun owner wants to hide his weapons from thieves.

  6. az_conservative Says:

    Right on Ronin! Call it “safe storage.” I’d certainly like some guidelines for keeping my valuables safe…

  7. CavMom Says:

    I decided just last night that my registered weapons of choice are too dangerous for the average citizen to own. SO, I melted them down and made horse shoes. Anyone up for a game of horse shoes with me?

    The Ammo? Oh all the boxes in my cart. Those are just for decorations. I am redocorating our modest abode with shiny things.

  8. Leatherneck Says:

    Me too Ronin.

  9. Leatherneck Says:

    I mean post the info for me also, in case I get any more weapons.


  10. letterstoadyingdream Says:

    Wait we are talking about guns? I thought this was about water balloons. I would never own a gun they scare me.

  11. LOL!

    You ALL are cracking me up!
