Paging the NRA’s lawyers, paging the NRA’s lawyers…..
The 1,800 or so criminals who have killed, robbed or assaulted innocent people with guns in the District of Columbia so far this year were hauled into the police station to be fingerprinted, photographed and to undergo a criminal-background check.
Now, legal gun owners who have committed no crime are getting the exact same treatment. That is neither constitutional, nor fair.
The latest gun-control scheme that starts on Jan. 1 will force every legal firearm owner in the nation’s capital to go in person to police headquarters to renew their registration certificates.
The Metropolitan Police Department filed proposed rules last week to enact this absurd law, and citizens have until Dec. 15 to comment on the regulations.
To avoid becoming a felon, anyone with a gun registered before 2011 will have to go to police headquarters to be fingerprinted, photographed, provide proof of address, pay a fee and confirm they may still legally possess the firearm. The Firearms Registration Section will then create a new registration certificate – now in the form of an ID card – for each gun.
This operation could end up making the rollout of Obamacare look smooth and easy.
The police propose scheduling everyone in three-month windows based on your birthday.
To insist that law abiding gun owners either pay a fee and get fingerprinted just to continue exercising their constitutional rights is despicable. Conservatives should fight this sort of gun registry tooth and nail by any legal means necessary. A lawsuit from the NRA to protect the 2nd Amendment rights of the law abiding citizens of D.C. seems like a good place to start.
