Having Americans register their firearms would be in violation of a Federal Law. The Firearms Owners' Protection Act specifically prohibits using information collected on firearms under the act in any registration system. The act states as follows: No such rule or regulation prescribed after the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners' Protection Act may require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or dispositions be established.

So, when will democrats introduce a bill calling for the repeal of the FOPA? Do you think the general public would be happy with them? I don't. Let's see how they play that one. This needs to be brought to the publics attention. I'm surprised we haven't heard more about the FOPA as it relates to registration. Not that the lamestream media would bring it up, but the NRA, GOA, SAF, CCRKBA, JPFO, etc. should be talking about it, and LOUDLY!

On ABC's This Week yesterday, Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp described President Obama's gun control proposals as "extreme."

“I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration -- and if the Washington Post is to be believed -- that's way -- way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about. And it's not going to pass,” said Heitkamp.
