Amnesty For Illegals Is A Gun Issue

June 19, 2013 by  

What does the immigration/amnesty bill currently being debated in the Senate have to do with gun control? A lot, according to Gun Owners of America, which says that gun owners need to help defeat the bill for four reasons.

Reason No. 1: It will add up to a net 8.4 million anti-gun voters in the next 13 years or so. This could make comprehensive gun control and confiscation inevitable within our lifetimes.

Reason No. 2: Victory feeds on itself, but so does defeat. If anti-gun Senator Chuck Schumer passes this bill out of the Senate with a strong bipartisan majority, he has already said he intends to bring back gun control by the end of the summer. Obama would emerge from the fight re-energized to take away your guns.

Reason No. 3: If people get used to having to have the government’s permission to get a job (even to clean your house or mow your lawn), it will be a lot harder to fight universal background checks and gun registries.

Reason No. 4: There is the concern that the bill will create a de facto national ID card. A Saturday article in The New York Times, titled “Fears of National ID with Immigration Bill,” reports that some in Congress have worried openly about the “potential for another sprawling data network that could ultimately be the equivalent of a national ID system.” Gun Owners of America has long opposed anything that smacks of this because of the danger that such data collection poses to gun owners’ privacy.

I gave more reasons the amnesty bill needs to fail here.
