Let me enlighten you to history: Every scheme of registration has led to confiscation. Most led to genocide of the disarmed. The proposals include registration. In California they registered "assault weapons" promising to never confiscate them. A few months later, guess what! Confiscation without compensation. Now every transfer must be registered with the CA DOJ, defacto registration. We are considered criminals by the very people who are tasked with protecting our rights. I have committed no crime. How do I defend against those who would reserve for themselves a right which is a compact of our heritage. Your heritage is replete with tyrants who have taken steps to enslave and kill your people.
