The Case for buying Unregistered Firearms


(Fox News) The Journal News, a local New York newspaper is drawing the ire of its readers after publishing an interactive map that shows the names and addresses of thousands of residents who have handgun permits. 

The online map was published by The Journal News along with an article under the headline: "The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood." The newspaper obtained, and then published, the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties through a Freedom of Information Act request. 

They pointed out that the interactive map could make the gun owners a target, but also make clear to would-be robbers which homes do not contain a gun. 
"Do you fools realize that you also made a map for criminals to use to find homes to rob that have no guns in them to protect themselves?" One reader wrote on Facebook.
Many gun owners have feared for years that a map of registered firearms would be the roadmap for government confiscation. The Journal News lays out a good case WHY you should buy a firearm from a source such that the firearm did not appear in your name.

NOTE: The Journal News did not publish a list of armed criminals because you can't get that with a Freedom of Information Act request.  They did what most anti-firearms people do, which is to pick on those people who lawfully possess firearms. The Journal News also undoubtedly identified the homes of law enforcement officers because those officers own legal firearms.

The government is irresponsible. The Press and Mainstream Media, which has become the government's creature over the past couple of decades to the point where it is indistinguishable from Big Government, is not trustworthy.

Some will take this as proof that individuals must learn to fend for themselves where Second Amendment Rights are concerned. Somebody needs to write to these liberal hacks at The Journal News and thank them for the wake-up call on Christmas Day.

  1. Which states require firearms registration? Is CA one of them? I know I sound clueless and I must be.

    1. Federal Firearms Regulation requires a 10 day waiting period to purchase handguns, which are registered to their owners. Some States hold that purchase at gun shows do not require a waiting period and are party-to party transfers.

      Firearms purchases in some states where the firearm and ammunition is manufactured in the state where it is sold to a resident do not meet the Federal Law Standard because there is no interstate commerce involved in the manufacture or purchase. Montana Firearms Freedom Act declares that firearms manufactured in the state of Montana after October 1, 2009, and which remain in the state, are exempt from United States federal firearms regulations, provided that these items are clearly stamped "Made in Montana" on a central metallic part.

      Red States in addition to Montana have since fallen into line.

      California, land of fruits and nuts, is one of the most restrictive states regarding firearms ownership. It's up there with Connecticut, Illinios and New Jersey and all of its citizens feel vindicated because of their absolute safety. The liberal inner city hells where people are slaughtered on a daily basis all have very restrictive firearms laws.

  2. This is precisely the reason that liberal politicians keep crying out to close the gun show "loophole." It's not really a loophole. But these liberal loonies can't stand the fact that law abiding citizens can get a hold of a gun without having the government know about it and, therefore, be able to confiscate it if the day of dictatorship should arise.

    I do find it interesting, however, that even registered Democrats are buying guns since Obama took office.

    1. In the Southern California area, ALL the firearms on the shelves were sold as people flooded to buy both them and every bullet and high capacity magazine for sale. They flooded the stores like Mexicans at a Green Card give-away.

      Thus Obama remains the best firearms salesman in the history of the Republic.

  3. I saw this on HuffPo... you should read some of the comments about how we are owners of firearms are all "depraved," "potential felons," and we deserve to be "outed" and exposed much like the Jews in 1930's Germany.

    It's truly amazing how lacking some people's understanding of our Constitutional rights can be.

    1. I don't plan to end up like the Jews in Germany -- who went out with a whimper.

      And I think that the liberals in America are deluding themselves if they feel that the armed half of America will surrender to the unarmed half.

  4. I just love the irony of the whole thing. The dumb SOBs just gave a map to their unarmed friends, the anti-gun people.

  5. I think a lot of people in California bought guns on their way out of the state. "Here, honey, put this in the moving van."

  6. Drudge published a link to Dianne Feinstein's congressional page showing that she's going to introduce a bill to require handgun owners to be fingerprinted and such. It looks like she wants to turn the entire US into the Socialist Republic of California.

    I do not think the bill will gain any traction, but it will gain a lot of pork barrel spending to try to get it to pass.
