This is the single most disturbing thing I have heard in 50 years, even out of all the rhetoric and hyperbole surrounding this gun control issue.

You would think that the ACLU would be up in arms with the gun owners but they remain strangely silent, that tells me something about their own agendas.

I'm pretty sure now that the NRA and the other gun rights groups are correct and that we should all be worried.

Oh they've been telegraphing where they are going with this since 1934 - people just don't pay attention, and trust the media too much. Do some digging, look at history, and use your brains.

I'm not buying the Senators' attempts to walk this back, because
this isn't the first time they've sponsored legislation that included
this provision. Senator Murray included similar language in a
bill he sponsored in 2009, and Senator Kline (along with Fairley,
Kohl-Welles and McDermott) in a bill entered in 2010.

They're going to keep re-introducing this sort of legislation until
the time comes when they can pass it. This was no accident, and
they're liars to say it was.

How convenient to do away with the Fourth Amendment and parts of the Fifth, as well as the Second all at the same time! A real time saver!

A fun little fact that I've been waiting to see someone post about somewhere. When an 18 year old man in the United States of America goes down and registers with the "selective service" ... which ever 18 year old, able bodied man, is required to do ... he then officially becomes a member of the United States Militia. And, he is a member of that said Militia until he is 45 years old. If he ever actively serves in the US military he is then a member of the Militia until he is 65 years old. That is United States law.

Shouldn't every member of our Militia be required to be armed and prepared to defend our nation when called upon?

"Constitution - Article II - The Executive Branch Section 2 - Clause 1:The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States when called into the actual service of the United States. [Article 2,Section 2 of the US Constitution]...

The reserve militia[3] or unorganized militia, also created by the Militia Act of 1903 which presently consist of every able-bodied man of at least 17 and under 45 years of age who are not members of the National Guard or Naval Militia.(that is, anyone who would be eligible for a draft). Former members of the armed forces up to age 65 are also considered part of the "unorganized militia" per Sec 313 Title 32 of the US Code."

Senator Kline also sponsored a gun-grab bill back in 2005,
Senate Bill #5475, that contained a similar mandate for
warrantless 'home inspections'. So this actually makes it at
least the third time he's sponsored bills containing
this sort of crap.

I'll say it again-- this was in no way an innocent mistake. These
men knew perfectly well what they were trying to do.

It's not about guns. It's about control.

Funny thing - I thought that over 200 years ago a bunch of rebels dressed in costumes dumped a few millions of dollars (in todays money) worth of tea into a murky harbor to combat just this kind of assault on basic human rights.

Is it coming to the time that we the people will have to do that again?
