Just Say No to ‘Universal Background Checks’

Missoula, MT –-(Ammoland.com)- See below the text of a letter I just sent to Montana’s congressional delegation.

If you wish to weigh in on this, send something similar yourself, or just send an email, fax or phone message saying “I agree with the MSSA position against “universal background checks.”


February 17, 2013

Senator Max Baucus
Senator Jon Tester
Congressman Steve Daines

Dear Senators Baucus and Tester, and Congressman Daines,

As we predicted, the interest by Congress to “do something” about new gun control is now resolving to “universal background checks,” an euphemism for universal gun owner registration.

In case you should have any question about it, MSSA is totally, unalterably opposed to ANY new gun control, especially including any system of actual or defacto “universal background checks.”

First, all available data demonstrates that criminals obtain their firearms almost exclusively by illegal means, so they would be unaffected by any background checks.

Second, if you don’t understand the implication of what would effectively become universal gun and gun owner registration, please look at the publication Lethal Laws produced by the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. In Lethal Laws, JPFO documents that during the century of the 1900s there were between 160 million and 260 million human beings put to death by their own governments in genocides around the World.

In Lethal Laws, JPFO also documents that every one of the genocides of the 1900s was preceded by gun confiscation, so defenseless people could easily be rounded up and killed, and every case of widespread firearm confiscation was preceded by gun registration. Of course, governments told their citizens that the government was just trying to keep everyone safe.

Most Montana gun owners know of the JPFO research, and that genocide is always preceded by gun confiscation, which is always preceded by gun registration. That’s why they take the gun registration inherent in “universal background checks” so very seriously.

I apologize if this seems like strong language, but I want to be frank and honest. Most Montana gun owners understand that a vote for “universal background checks” will actually be a vote to begin down the track that ended in genocide every time it was done in the 1900s.

For any Montana gun owners who don’t already understand this connection, MSSA will surely inform them. There’s just no way to sugar-coat this or say it more nicely – a vote for gun registration, even if euphemistically described as “universal background checks,” will be seen as putting necessary pieces into place for subsequent genocide.

So, we hope you will be staunch in your opposition to ANY new federal gun control proposed in Congress, but especially to “universal background checks.”.

Background checks are registration.Registration leads to confiscation.History has proven this from the communists in Russia,China,Korea,Vietnam,Laos and many others to the the third reich.Once they have your guns they work you as a slave or exterminate you.Its that simple.ANY s.o.b.that demands you give up your guns are your mortal enemy.That is all.

Thankyou Sue for helping me to understand the Universal Background Check better.In California its not a NICS check but I have to look into who does the check.Though I can see why there would be problems with a Universal Background Check.Thankyou again.If anyone else can help me understand the problems.I would appreciate it.I’m a conservative Republican in my political views.I can see how the 4473 form could be totally abused.

Johnny – The record in the NICS (or FBI or any state’s BI) computer is, supposedly, deleted after a certain amount of time – Colorado is 24 hours. However, the 4473 form that everyone fills out prior to having the background check run is kept by the FFL-holder/dealer FOREVER! BATFE has the right to visit any FFL-holder and demand to see his books. If they want to copy or confiscate or “borrow” his books or any part of them, they have that right, also. Basically, BATFE can do just about anything they want to or deem necessary for the safety… Read more »

All the guns I have bought in California.Have gone through a ten day waiting period and a paid background check.Whether it was a long gun or handgun.When I sold my guns at the same shop on consignment.The new owner had to wait ten days and go through a paid background check.I heard that those records for the background checks can only be kept a short time and than have to be destroyed so there is no registry of firearms.I’m a law abiding responsible citizen with no criminal record.I don’t mean to be uninformed or dumb.I’m trying to understand why other… Read more »

Here’s the law for background checks. United States Department of Justice website 30-Jan-12 State of Residence Requirements for Firearms Transfers Date Posted – 02/13/12 Section 922(b)(3) of title 18, which forbids federal firearms licensees from selling or delivering “any firearm to any person who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in . . . the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located,” cannot be interpreted to define “reside in . . . the State” differently for citizens and aliens. Nonimmigrant Aliens and Firearms Disabilities Under the Gun Control Act Date Posted… Read more »


I don’t think most Americans whether they believe what the 2nd amendment means, or whether they are for the 2nd but personally don’t exercise their rights, understand just how dangerous the government has become. I don’t trust ANY of them right now.


Anything Obama want’s to pass in Congress, is for destroying America, just vote against all that he want’s to pass.

Mr. Jonz

I just say NO to anything this treasonous, out of control, POS government says or does.


Its obvious the candy ass liberal scum dont give a rats ass about the 2’nd Amend.,but they need to read the 10’th Amend.too.Thats what this will probably come down to,..states rights. It limits gov.control over states.Its damn nice to be native Texan in times like this ! HBH


Remember who you are dealing with Baucus voted for feincteins gun ban #1 Politicians are so ignorant and greedy that nothing is being said about the medications 100% of these kids are being forced to take.Look at the attached link below it is a list of 4000 reports on file of SSRI induced acts of violence.



Universal background checks are a false-flag effort to impose more restrictions on law-abiding citizens and will have NO effect on the illegal gun trade. No amount of new legislation will prevent people who are breaking the law from breaking more laws. Guys who sell guns from the trunks of their cars at schools or other places (already illegal) from continuing to do so. It will have no effect on preventing criminals from obtaining guns. All it will do is prevent law-abiding citizens from selling guns to people they know. They won’t reduce crime, they won’t reduce the likelihood of mass-murders,… Read more »

I couldn’t have said it any better. I would respectfully submit I will not participate in a ‘universal’ background check. I will NOT participate in a gun registration scheme of any kind. When the Federal government on all it’s various legs obeys the laws, then they can expect the same from me. The 2nd is not the only right that is guaranteed to all of us.


The Universal Background Check proposed by Washington and the gun grabbers needs to be rejected and rejected soundly for several reasons. We’ve all seen the debate shifting these last few weeks once Washington came to the realization that there was not enough support to get a weapons ban law renewed or any new gun control measures passed. ” You have to be reasonable and accept SOME form of gun control. ” goes the propaganda now. And the answer is… ” No…we don’t. ” Now that the Washington has settled on the Universal Background Check as it’s end-game, the media has… Read more »
