Did Attorney General Eric Holder recently “spill the beans” on the Obama administration’s desires to implement some kind of national gun registration scheme?
Holder, a perennial anti-gunner who was involved with the Clinton administration’s anti-gun schemes, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Nov. 18 and a transcript of his remarks that were not part of his prepared statement is revealing.
In the Attorney General's statement I didn't see anything specifically about gun registration. Some pro-gun folks are referring to Holder's remarks that gun information is "to be retained and then to be shared by law enforcement," as if this is tantamount to registration. What do you think? Is sharing information the same as registration?
The Examiner article contains a video of Nancy Pelosi speaking earlier this year. What the pro-gun crowd is interested in is when the Speaker of the House said, "We don’t want to take their guns away. We want them registered."
My own observation is that there's more than paranoia and conspiracy theories here. Gun registration is coming. It's an inevitable part of any comprehensive gun control agenda. It's necessary in order to close the loophole regarding private sales of guns properly.
One interesting thing is when Ms. Pelosi referred to the spate of high profile shootings which happened earlier this year, she said 53 people were killed between March 10th and April 4th. Not one of the pro-gun apologists who were so thoroughly analyzing this video in light of Holder's comments bothered to mention that along with those 53 who lost their lives during that bloody month in highly publicized shootings, another 2,000 or so died from gun violence. The daily toll is upwards of 100, that's every day, day in and day out.
What's your opinion? Isn't it about time something was done about the free flow of guns in America? Do you agree that total registration of all guns, linking them to their proper owners would help diminish the flow?
