    The European Union has mandated that all member states must have a computerized data-filing system registering all firearms in place by 2014.

    I was thinking the same thing. You beat me to it but I was going to say that Germany and registries can never end well.

    You guts got it all wrong. They are going to use this registry to make it safer and to protect peoples rights. Why I bet once this is in place the criminals will stop stealing gun because they will get caught due to the registration laws. Have we looked into this yet? Maybe our current administration will step up and make things safer, you know, for the children.

    It will probably look something like this, and have a subdermal RFID in the center to distinguish friend from foe...

    We already have a firearms register as long as I can remember.

    But they are all registered at 600 different local authorities with sometimes different systems.

    all my firearms are registered and I don't see any problem with that. I don't have anything to hide.

    That’s exactly what the Germans though just before WW II. Seems they don’t remember what Hitler did with those records.



    Bah bah little sheep. If one purchase a firearm from a non-FFL or sells to another citizen it IS NOT REGISTERED in most states. Seems you don't remember what recently happedn right here in the US. :shakehead: So here’s one fore you a little closer to home and not so very long ago. May I direct your attention to California… 1980s through 2000.

    1989, The Roos-Roberti Assault Weapons Act was made law. A deadline was issued for registration of banned weapons. SKS rifles with detachable magazines had to be registered. There was a $200.00 registration fee. When the state decide to CONFISCATE the rifles that had been registyered they said they were buying them back. For how much? $200.00! Didn't I just say it cost $200.00 to register them? Guess that was just a coincidence. Or do you think it was planned all along?


    Yah, if I were you I wouldn’t worry about my firearms being registered either. It could never happen here. And besides you don't have anything to hide. :upeyes:

    you don't have to worry.

    we have around 10mio registred firearms and twice as much unregistred.

    So there are enough weapons around the gov. will never know about.

    That’s all well and good. However as we’ve seen in Comyfornia and New Orleans MOST will just give them up. But then this country was won through the sacrifice of only 3% of The People. I just wonder if we still have 3% with enough courage should the government decide to make slaves of us. Do I worry about this every day? Yes! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance and freedom is not free.
