It falls under Section 103(i) in the Brady Law: And backs up the Second Amendment………….
(i) PROHIBITION RELATING TO ESTABLISHMENT OF REGISTRATION SYSTEMS WITH RESPECT TO FIREARMS- No department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States may–
(1) require that any record or portion thereof generated by the system established under this section be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or political subdivision thereof; or
(2) use the system established under this section to establish any system for the registration of firearms, firearm owners, or firearm transactions or dispositions, except with respect to persons, prohibited by section 922 (g) or (n) of title 18, United States Code or State law, from receiving a firearm.
“….the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Infringe means to encroach. You cannot even encroach on that right. Any thing which restricts in any manner the right to keep and bear arms is Unconstitutional. Now you must understand that therefore any federal firearms laws are unconstitutional.
The answer to that question decides what type of country we live in: a constitutional republic where individuals have unalienable rights, or an unlimited democracy where individuals have only privileges the fickle majority grants them.
“Shall not be infringed” is powerful language. Up there with “Congress shall make no law…”
Requiring paperwork, and disclosure of private information are all infringements.
It’s real easy, “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”.
If the feds are data basing gun owners they are infringing their right to keep and bear arms by requiring an unreasonable action on the part of the gun owner. A database has the potential to be abused therefore it is in itself an infringement of the right to own a firearm.
“Guard with jealous
attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give
up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” unquote, -Patrick Henry-
Take heed from this very astute
warning fellow Americans…
In Ma. The E-FA-10 form is not a gun registration form, it is a transfer of ownership form, from the gun store to you, or from you to another person. By law it can NOT be used to determine what you own unless a firearm is part of a criminal investigation. Here is the statute that defines this;
NOTICE: FIREARMS RECORDS are EXEMPTED from the PUBLIC RECORDS statute. G.L c.4,§7 (clause twenty-six)(j). FRB may not disseminate firearms records “to any person, firm, corporation, entity or agency except criminal justice agencies as defined in chapter six and except to the extent such information relates solely to the person making the request and is necessary to the official interests of the entity making the request.” G.L. c. 66, § 10(d).
