    The generation that lived through the previous registration scheme is still around and they are going to try it again?

    May they have all the success the Canadians did…

  3. Barron Barnett Says:

    Wait, didn’t they do this once before in Germany or am I just imagining it?

    Nope, there it is. Good to see they’re so smart as to learn from their mistakes.

    They’re basically cleaning up all the data from the existing local registry offices to a central one in digital form, making things easier for the police – they need to know if someone has a gun before barging in.

    On the other hand that central database will probably be as secure as all other state projects. However, only the (roughly) 10 million legal guns will be in that database, the (estimated) 20 million illegal guns will remain unregistered.

    As I understand it, this is being done to meet EU regulations – all EU nations have to have a central registry, not the local ones (like what Germany had until this) that some have.

    There aren’t that many left anymore, and I’m not sure the ones still in Germany ever made the necessary logical connections in the first place.

    Remember, the idea of the RKBA, and its importance, is one that only really coalesced in the USA. Very few other cultures grok it (Israel is one, but they had some pretty horrific illustrations to learn from).

    EU regulations are those laws the individual governments want but which would make them highly unpopular. So they pass these laws to some bureaucrat in Brussels who rubberstamps everything, and they pretend to be against it, yet since it’s EU laws they can’t refuse to implement them.

    Strangely enough there are some EU laws that have been vetoed by some local governments.

    You can’t out-sarcasm reality.

    What are you people so surprised about?

    So, the German people have opted to follow a policy that enabled tyranny sixty or seventy years ago. Are you surprised they haven’t learned a damn thing from their own history?

    That’s some chutzpah, fellas: the American people are looking at national bankruptcy in real-time (Greece, Spain, etc.), and they voted to follow the exact same path to oblivion. We Americans don’t have the smarts to learn the lessons of “right now”, let alone the lessons of history. Who the hell are we to judge the Germans?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
