Middle School Assignment: Second Amendment Requires Gun Registration

by Mikael Thalen, Story Leak:

A workbook handed out to seventh grade students in Springfield, Ill., states that all Americans must register their firearms in order to have a Second Amendment right.

Provided to the Illinois Gun Owners Rights Facebook page by a local parent, the required reading makes several blatantly false statements regarding the right to gun ownership.

“This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison,” the workbook states.

Along with an open ended statement regarding the right to “certain weapons,” the assignment also excludes mention that Americans have the right to “keep” and bear arms.

    The Text Book has it 100% correct…We do currently have the right to purchase only certain weapons and have not been in prison. Felons cant get guns, American Citizen can not purchase a class 3 on a receiver built past 1986. I really dont understand people at all since 1968 you have no right to certain weapons. The ground work is laid and will continue. I cant purchase a pistol in my county without first applying for a permit from the sheriffs office. They do give them out although its a pain in the ass. So your telling me that the Sheriffs office doesnt keep records of who receives permits?

      Ummm… No it is not correct. The 2nd Amendment is contained in a Federal level document, the Constitution of the United States of America, specifically in the Bill of Rights. It is not State Law, or County Law, or City Law.

      The 2nd Amendment specifically does NOT require registration of firearms. This is one of the big sticking points that 2nd Amendment proponents get upset about, when States or Counties or Cities start requiring registration. Historically, registration has ALWAYS led to confiscation (eventually). That’s why we get so upset when anti-gun people say “what’s the big deal, if you aren’t a criminal you should just register them.” The problem becomes when the government starts encroaching on your rights, now they know “who has the guns” and “who is the only person with the capability to resist”. That’s their target. That’s how Hitler disarmed the Jews – he made them REGISTER their weapons.

      I don’t have any idea where you live, Mike, but in many states and counties there is no gun registration required to purchase or own a firearm. So the textbook is 100% WRONG. Maybe if would be correct if it was talking about your County Law, but not if it is talking about Federal Law.

      Also, a “permit” means different things – are you talking about a Concealed Carry permit? In that case, the State and/or County usually does keep a record. But for simple ownership/purchase of a firearm, a permit is not required in most states and counties!!!

    Here in Monmouth County NJ,the township I reside in requires the following to purchase a hand gun:
    > finger printing by the police.
    > Must have a fire arms purchasing permit,which has many of the same requirements as for the HG application and is not time sensitive,complete an application that requires a federal/state background check,including mental health BGC.Once it goes through/clears the State Police section and then Federal,it comes back to the Chief of Police,who has the final say/signature.
    > The COP signs/authorizes the permit,which is good for 90 days,but could be extended for another 90,after that it’s done/NG.In NJ you can apply for multiple permits,but only spend one permit per 30days.There is no limit on application of permits,except the 1/30days for each purchase.
    > About the question of registration and does this process here in NJ constitute fire arm registration? Hell Yeah it does,they know exactly who owns the guns and where they are.It’s a hassle,but you have to put up with it if you want to own guns in NJ.
    > Plus you ain’t gettin a conceal carry permit in NJ,unless you are police,active and/or retired.

      Again, this is your County or Township rules, not Federal rules! I am watching the original Red Dawn right now on TNT, funny how in the first 10 minutes the Cubans are telling their troops to go to the sporting goods store and find the forms that tell them who has the guns… 😛

      It will either be the Russians, Chinese, Cubans, or our own Federal government, all of those forms will eventually be used for confiscation… 🙁
