The country that invented Nazism sets up national gun registry
Something very instructive just happened in Germany. Germany just implemented “a vast registry that details every legal gun owner in the country, along with information about all of their firearms.”
They did this, based on records that, in some cases, “were kept on index cards across what used to be 551 separate local registries.”
Thus, with everyone’s name already on an index card (read: 4473 forms) in what was effectively a “universal background check,” it was a small step to a national gun registry.
Not surprisingly, “gun rights groups” in Germany raised no real opposition. “We are used to it,” said one.
Now, in the words of The Washington Post: If they are preparing a raid on a house, they can scout the address in the database to be better prepared for what weapons might lie within. Before the database, they could only guess at overall numbers, and finding the weapons registered to a certain address had been laborious.
Do we need any better indication of why “universal background checks” are the most insidious aspect of Barack Obama’s gun control?
We know that gun confiscation is the ultimate endgame for many of the gun grabbers on the Left. Consider just a few, recent well-known cases:
* “Confiscation could be an option,” declared New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview (December 27, 2012).
* “We cannot have big guns out here,” said Iowa Rep. Dan Muhlbauer. “Even if you have them, I think we need to start taking them.” (Interview with the Iowa Daily Times Herald, December 19, 2012.)
