Last month, gun rights advocates were shocked when a Federal Court upheld the ATF Southwest rifle sales registry that was put into place by the Obama Administration. This registry, which for all intents and purposes is a federal gun tracking system, requires any citizen who purchases 2 or more riles in the Southwest (Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, or California) to list that purchase with the federal agency. With that, the federal government now has a de facto watch list of gun owners.

It is important to note no law was passed for this registry. It was a mandate from a federal agency and pushed through by a federal court without Congressional approval.

Thankfully, the Obama Administration’s actions are not going unchallenged. Representative John Carter of Texas has introduced an amendment into the 2014 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Bill that will defund this unconstitutional program. Specifically, his amendment will forbid the use of federal funds in the enforcement of Section 923 of Title 18 of the United States Code.

In a speech announcing this amendment, Mr. Carter said:

“Buying and owning a gun is the right of each and every American. Frankly, the federal government has been stepping all over that right and it’s time to rein it in…The government has no business tracking the gun purchases of law-abiding citizens. Americans should not be placed on a watch list for simply exercising their constitutional rights. President Obama should focus his attention on criminals rather than honest citizens exercising their rights.”

This bill and Mr. Carters’ amendment still have to get past the Democrat-controlled Senate. Representative Carter has asked for citizens to reach out to their Senators in an effort to protect their 2nd Amendment rights.

There are some things that should die an early death and this registry crap is one of them
