Under the Firearms Registration Act, gun owners would be forced to register their firearms with the Pennsylvania State Police. Then, they would have to provide law enforcement the make, model, and serial numbers of all their firearms.

On top of that, applicants must also submit an application with fingerprints, two photos that are no older than 30 days, and be subject to a background check for each firearm that they own.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Gun owners must also hand over to the Pennsylvania State Police their home and work addresses, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, age, sex, and citizenship. To put this in perspective, these requirements are stiffer than the requirements needed for voting.

In the case that the State Police rejects a person’s application, they will then have ten days to appeal this decision. In the meantime, gun owners must hand over their firearms to the State Police within three days of receiving the rejection notification. If an individual fails to appeal the decision within the allotted ten-day timeframe, they are then stripped of their gun rights.

There is reason to believe that the enforcement of this law will be difficult for the Pennsylvania State Government to carry out. Other states like Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York have made registration and ban attempts with mixed results.

Nevertheless, anti-gun forces are relentless.  Since Las Vegas and Parkland, gun controllers have worked frenetically at the state level to advance gun control. Legislation like the Firearms Registration Act function as trial balloons to gauge the public’s reaction to radical forms of gun control.

Win or lose, the anti-gun Left uses these schemes to acclimate the populace into casually discussing extreme gun control, and eventually trying to make these discussions a political reality.

For this reason, gun owners must always remain on guard and be ready to derail these schemes at a moment’s notice.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
