New Hampshire: they are coming for your guns. Live free or die. Michael Bloomberg is pushing for 'change' in the Granite State by pushing a bill (via proxy) that would make it a felony to transfer (give, sell or loan) a firearm without an FFL background check. Furthermore, every gun sale must be registered with the state.
The 2nd amendment to the United States constitution reads 'a well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state; the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed'.
The Supreme Court of the United States is currently ruling on a case that may have implications on how, and if, the government can intervene on private firearms sales or transfers. The government, nationwide is using the color of law- using the guise of 'public security' to curtail your 2nd amendment rights- and in many cases, build upon a road leading to confiscation. This is happening right now in Maryland, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and California.
This bill is extremely dangerous because it creates a state registry of firearms purchases associated with a particular citizen. When the government deems the citizenry unfit to have their firearms, they know who has them, where they are and where to find the individuals for eventual confiscation.
History from countries such as The UK, Australia and Nazi Germany have shown us that registration leads to confiscation. The state of New Jersey is, and has- talked about such measures.In order to purchase a firearm legally, it will be a prerequisite that your purchase be registered (by mandate) to the state government.
This is in direct violation of the United States Constitution, the 2nd Amendment, and your rights. The arguments presented by gun control advocates are based upon data conducted from 200 individuals in New York, false hoods and outright lies. At the beginning of the argument, it should be
stated that criminals do not obey the law.
The 'general assembly' believes that these actions will protect the public good- but fail to explain how they will do so and how effective they will be. It has been proven that legislators are not going after criminals- they are going after law abiding citizens.
This amounts to 'punishment' of law abiding gun owners by a movement who's end goal is the confiscation of all private firearms, beginning with semi-automatic rifles. To further the emotional roller coaster that the issue presents, Sandy Hook parents were brought in to testify how universal background checks would have saved their dead children- and that gun control is necessary. The mass murderer in question, who will remain censored because I do not believe in glorifying him, stole the weapons used in the atrocity. At the same time, gun control advocates are using Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death, which had nothing to do with firearms- to push for gun control.
You are urged to contact your legislators immediately and tell them that you will not accept any curtailment or destruction of your rights that are enshrined in the Constitution. Please call them by telephone or meet them in person to discuss this infringement on your liberties.
