OK, in fairness, her actual goal is to disarm law-abiding citizens throughout her state, which doubtless includes many, many gay people.
Another anti-gun bill mandating (this time) the registration of every firearm in the state of Illinois (plus permission slips to purchase ammunition) was introduced last month by self-proclaimed LGBT activist and progressive Democrat Kelly Cassidy. Representing state district 14, Cassidy’s bill is called simply: “Firearms Registration Act.” Cassidy’s goal is simple: She wants the Illinois State Police to know where every firearm in the state is, what its registration number is, who owns it, and where they live.
So, these same progressives who are outraged because drug offenders are incarcerated for non-violent crimes want to make mere possession of an unregistered firearm a class-two felony?
The sole purpose of firearms registration is so that the state will know where all the firearms are and can confiscate them more easily. In places where gun registration is already in place, law enforcement is hard-pressed to come up with a single example of gun registration helping solve a crime.
Outlawing the private ownership of firearms is the ultimate goal of every gun control activist… and, not incidentally, every oppressive dictatorial regime.Gun registration is an essential incremental step in that direction.
Meanwhile, the deep red state of Idaho has just expanded the gun rights of its citizens. Thanks to this law, if some nutjob tries to shoot up a college campus in Idaho, there is a much better chance that he will be stopped by an armed, law-abiding citizen.
