DOJ Suggests that US Confiscate Firearms

Received this from Mr. Don Eagleman. The National Institute of Justice is indeed a government agency. Here is a link to their site. My apologies for the slow awareness about this document. And my thanks to Don for sending the info on!

Please do go and download the pdf. It’s useful ammunition for us to use to push the Missouri Legislature to pass HB 436, the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

Leaked DOJ Memo: Outlaw and Confiscate All Guns…

February 24, 2013

The National Rifle Association has obtained a Department of Justice memo calling for national gun registration and confiscation. The nine page “cursory summary” on current gun control initiatives was not officially released by the Obama administration.

The DOJ memo (downloadable here as a PDF) states the administration “believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation,” according to the NRA, and thinks universal background checks “won’t work without requiring national gun registration.” Obama has yet to publicly support national registration or firearms confiscation, although the memo reveals his administration is moving in that direction.

The memo stands in stark contrast to the administration’s public stance on so-called gun control. White House spokesman Jay Carney said last month that laws proposed by Obama would not “take away a gun from a single law-abiding American.”

The NRA declined to explain how it obtained the document. The memo was written by the acting director of the Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice, Greg Ridgeway. It is dated January 4, two weeks before Obama mounted his attack on the Second Amendment following the Sandy Hook massacre. Ridgeway came to the Justice Department from the RAND corporation.
