North Carolina –-(Ammoland.com)- Sometimes I hate to be right. Just days ago I told gun owners that the gun ban Senator Dianne Feinstein is planning to introduce will be considerably worse than what expired in 2004.

Some gun owners responded, “Yeah, right. ‘The sky is falling, the sky is falling.’”

Yesterday it became official: Gun owners who want to hang on to their “grandfathered” semi-automatic firearms will not only have their guns registered, they will be fingerprinted and photographed like common criminals.

Don’t believe me: Check it yourself
On Feinstein’s own website, (http://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/assault-weapons )  the ugly details of her massive gun grab are now starting to emerge: Beyond the ban on magazines and specifically named firearms, any gun possessing even one cosmetic feature characteristic of semi-automatic utility rifles would be banned. Thumbhole stocks typical of .22 caliber plinking rifles would also be specifically banned.

But the real intent is stated in how she plans to treat people who already have semi-autos: Gun owners will be registered under the 1934 “National Firearms Act” – the same one that now regulates machine guns.

Says Feinstein herself, it would entail:

  • Background checks of existing owners and any transferees;
  • Registering the type and serial number of the firearm;
  • Photographing and fingerprinting gun owners;
  • Local law enforcement signoffs certifying the gun owners’ identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
  • Dedicating funding for BATFE to implement registration.

Please note first that local law enforcement authorities are not required to provide such certifications, so in all probability, the “grandfather” clause will be meaningless.

And you had better learn to love the nice people at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms – the same folks responsible for Waco back in the 1990s – because you’ll be seeing a lot more of them: “Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration” of several hundred thousand guns probably translates to the most massive expansion of federal police powers in U.S. history.

And if you refuse to comply with the law – as tens of thousands of gun owners will undoubtedly do – you can look forward to being prosecuted as a ten-year federal felony.

‘Confiscation could be an option…’

The “from my cold dead hands” gun owners who refuse to register guns under Feinstein’s scheme also have this to look forward to: “Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.” That comes directly from CBS News.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo agrees. Discussing his upcoming proposal, he said: “Confiscation could be an option…”

The time for action is NOW!

You must immediately do four things:

  • Sign the petition to STOP THE OBAMA GUN BAN by going immediately to: http://grnc.org/stop-the-obama-gun-ban-petition-gpo1203
  • Tell Congress you won’t tolerate attacks on your rights: Do so by using GRNC’s contact page at: http://grnc.org/stop-the-obama-gun-ban
  • Support GRNC: We are already meeting with members of Congress to give them a “spine injection” and get them to oppose the Obama gun ban when it is introduced. That means going to Washington, and that requires money. If you haven’t yet joined or contributed, go to: http://grnc.org/index.php/join-grnc/contribute
  • Forward this article: Maybe you some know some lazy shooters at the wildlife club; maybe you know somebody with a concealed handgun permit who feels this issue doesn’t affect them. Get them informed and active!

Deliver this message to Congress

“Dear [Congressman or Senator]:

The extent of the massive power grab being planned by Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Dianne Feinstein is now frighteningly clear: According to Senator Feinstein’s own website, any gun owner who currently owns a semi-automatic utility rifle will either have the gun confiscated or be fingerprinted and photographed like a common criminal.

To implement this unprecedented gun registration scheme, its proponents plan a massive expansion of police powers via the National Firearms Act and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms – an expansion which will undoubtedly waste untold billions of dollars.

Beyond even erosion of my Second Amendment rights, the Obama/Biden/Feinstein power grab attacks the core freedoms enjoyed by Americans. I expect you to stop this legislation dead in its tracks, and will be monitoring your actions via Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.

Respectfully,

[Your name & address]

With your support, we will prevail

Dark those these times may be, make no mistake: We can drive back the forces that would steal your freedom, but doing so means YOU must monitor legislative alerts and stay informed. YOU must contact Congress. YOU must contribute to gun rights organizations such as Grass Roots North Carolina. And YOU must get others involved. Only through your support can we win this fight.

Armatissimi e liberissimi,

Boycott Feinstein

Now Boycott all the businesses and individuals that made campaign contribution to anti-2nd amendment Members of Congress. Use opensecrets dot org to look them up. You may find out that some of your close associates are anti 2nd amendment! Time to boycott them and make them wallets hurt.

Boycott Feinstein

It is time to boycott everyone every business owner that supported Dianne Feinstein. Go to opensecrets dot org, click on Donor Look Up and enter Dianne Feinstein in the Recipient box, then check all the years you want to see below and it will show you who her donors are. Better yet, send all those donors a letter of condolesence for voting for such a disgruntled senior citizen into the Senate.

What amazes me is that more than half of my firearms (legally purchased and maintained)will become illegal or restricted (or both) if (or when) they pass this monstrosity of a bill. I will immediately go from veteran, patriot, and law abiding citiizen with a CHL to a criminal. That is if I don't comply with their socialist-fascist agenda. The lawmakers that wrote(or vote for) this bill should be dismissed (or worse) from their offices because they have clearly violated their oaths of office. They swore to defend and uphold the U.S.Constitution.

Molon Labe!

I was fingerprinted and photographed to get my concealed carry permit , I have friends that carry concealed without a permit for that very reason . However they don't know my firearms inventory , nor will they ever as long as I am breathing . That is also my counsel for my sons and grandsons , as well as every man and woman that considers themselves to be free citizens as opposed to enslaved subjects .

Got fingerprinted when I joined the Coast Guard in 1988.

Got fingerprinted again in 1989 when I received a secret security clearance.

Got fingerprinted again when I applied for a Massachusetts LTC in 1992.

Got fingerprinted again when I received my Coast Guard Captain's license in 1992.

Got fingerprinted again when I applied for a Transportation Worker Identification Card in 2007.

Got fingerprinted again when I renewed my TWIC (see above) last July.

Even in the extremely unlikely event DiFi's loony-bin cesspool of a bill passes…..I've already been fingerprinted and will probably need to have it done again!!

I see in the news where 21 Pakistani police officers have been found today executed with a shot to the head. Maybe they were out trying to confiscate Pakistani citizens guns. Hmmmm.

Looks like an opening for a new black market.

It seems like, to produce this new, gigantic federal bureaucracy to fingerprint, photograph, and monitor gun owners, it would cost, roughly, the equivalent of putting an armed guard in every school. And which system would keep our kids safer? Duh. So do they just take all our statistics and prints, or do they issue some sort of federal permit? If the latter, assuming the resulting "permit to carry" is granted to every law abiding citizen (i.e., a "shall issue" clause), would such a permit now allow us to legally carry concealed anywhere in the country, superceding state laws? Why do… Read more »

Q:What is the difference between a midget criminal and Diane Feinstein jogging?

A:The former is a cunning runt!

Chuck

Diane "Frankenstein" doesn't want anyone to have guns but cops and the military. Sounds like Hitler and many other leaders who took away guns from law abiding citizens and then did their dirty work UN-molested.Fear the government that fears you!

Chuck

People with CWP are already fingerprinted, photographed, and a extensive background check is done on them. It is obvious they are not criminals. Criminals would never submit to this, so how would all this being done to all people who have not committed a crime solve anything? It would just cost the government a hell of a lot of money, which we don't have, just to confirm that people who have broken no law aren't criminals. Kind of robbing Peter to pay Paul. The cops and media do all the fueling of these people who kill, by giving them the… Read more »

The squeaking wheel gets the grease, well the only ones squeaking are the gun banners lately…Better pick up the pace and call/write your lawmakers or be ready to give up your guns when they come to get yours.
