    Assault weapon tracking

    http://openchannel.msnbc.msn.com/_ne...g-rule-delayed

    The proposed rule, announced by Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms acting director Kenneth Melson on Dec. 20, would require U.S. firearms dealers in four southwest border states to report multiple sales of long guns, such as semi-automatic assault rifles which are frequently purchased by so-called “straw buyers” for the cartels. Melson had said he expected the proposed “emergency rule” would receive approval in early January 2011.

    This has been mentioned elsewhere, but deserves another look from an angle I've yet to hear mentioned:

    Kenneth Melson has yet to explain how he plans to track the sale/transfer from the "straw buyer" to the cartel.

    Here's a better solution: Arm everyone. We outnumber the druggies by 20 to 1. If they start shooting, shoot back.

    No, seriously. This very basic, yet effective idea, with its roots in the histories of disarmed peoples oppressed by criminal elements, is at the heart of our Second Amendment, which 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."

    One cannot secure, nor be secure, in a State which infringes up the right of its People to keep and bear arms. On the other hand, when one respects the right of the People to keep and bear arms, the People will secure themselves and the State.

    You're still going to have nutcases like in Tuscon, Virginia Tech, Fairchild, and Columbine, but when the People are armed, the nutcases don't last very long. They might kill 2 people before being taken out, but not 32 people.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
