Federal Court Says Government Can Keep Collecting Gun Purchase Records – Government Wants Gun Registry


The final step of Nazi control in Austria was registration and confiscation of guns. (Fairly Civil)

A federal court has ruled that the Obama administration can keep requiring gun dealers in states that border Mexico to report to the government when an individual buys certain types of firearms with certain features within a matter of days.
