Of course all the anti-rights groups are gun registration, not to prevent crime or improve public safety, as that’s been proven to be false…but for confiscation. Still they can’t admit their true intentions, because people might notice that they’re evil.
Now let’s look at reality. First he’s saying “Perps”, meaning Suspects of crimes. There needs to be some suspicion as running the serial number on a gun needs to have probable cause or a warrant to protect the 4th Amendment rights of the owners (not that Anti-Freedom people much care for the 4th Amendment….the 4th only applies to people THEY like), so we’re talking about an armed suspect of a crime. Well if the police ARREST the person, well the gun gets confiscated. Now if the person is charged with a serious crime, they become a prohibited person for the duration of their court trial. (see GCA ’68) Again the gun is confiscated, and can only be returned if the person is not convicted. Now let’s take the most common “Armed Perp” situation. Gang members and drug dealers. These people generally have prior convictions, again doesn’t matter who owns the gun, prohibited people can’t be going about armed.
This is yet another great example of anti-rights people calling for more restrictions to fix a problem we really don’t have. Same can be said about banning private sale. They want to stop criminals from getting guns…but even in places where private sales are illegal criminals get guns, and knowingly selling a gun to a criminal is a crime.
We don’t call them “Anti-Freedom” for nothing!
