MAIG Blueprint for Ending Gun Ownership in the U.S.

Sebastian at Snowflakes in Hell has obtained a copy of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Mayor Against Illegal Guns secret plan presented to President Obama. The document, obtained through an FOIA request, outlines an attack not on "illegal guns, but on all gun owners...here's Sebastian's quick summary of the points:
• Require REAL ID compliant identification for all gun purchasers. Those in non-complying states, which are many, will no longer be permitted to buy firearms.
• Recommends a ban on the importation of all “non-sporting” firearms and ammunition, and specifically calls for banning the FN Five-Seven. Kiss cheap imported rounds of military caliber goodbye. Maybe kiss Glock’s goodbye too. MAIG isn’t all that specific on what would be sporting or non sporting. Also note that MAIG can no longer claim they do not advocate banning guns. They do.
• Calls for keeping records for people who get a NICS default proceed, which means your background check has not “cleared” but you went through the required three day waiting period. These records can be kept for up to 20 years, in the case of someone who’s name matches someone on the “terror watch” list and six months ordinarily. Default proceeds can happen if NICS has incomplete records, or the system is down for a protracted period of time.
• Calls for more enforcement of gun shows using the Richmond model. The techniques used at the Richmond gun shows were bad enough that Congress held hearings about the methods, and demanding ATF put a stop to them. They actually recommend rescinding a number of the changes made to prevent these abuses.
• Recommends ways for the administration to exploit loopholes in Tiahrt to publish information on “problematic” gun dealers (so they can be sued by New York City, no doubt). As we’ve pointed out on this blog before, having a lot of traces doesn’t necessarily mean a dealer is breaking the law.
• Lots of recommendations for new record keeping requirements on the part of FFLs
• Requiring placement of alternate serial numbers of every newly manufactured gun, and requiring serial numbers to be deeper and larger. Also require that a consistent serial numbering scheme be adopted across all manufacturers and importers.
• Asks ATF to promote MAIG’s Responsible Dealer Partnership Program that they foisted on Wal-Mart, much like they do with NSSF’s “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy.” They imply NSSF’s program does not go far enough.
• Asks the CPSC to mandate gun safety lock standards. Gun dealers are required to provide these, but many gun owners are older, or younger, and do not have children. This would be a way to add substantially to the cost of a firearm, if a 30 dollar lock needed to be included with each sale.
• Extend the multiple purchase reporting requirement to long guns, especially ARs, 50 caliber firearms, and Kalashnikov variants. MAIG is not very clear on this, and I think it would be difficult for dealers to keep track of the current state of regulation.
• Specifically calls for the Stinger Pen Gun to be reclassified as an AOW. I had never heard of this before, but I guess it really pisses off someone in the New York Mayor’s office, which is a good enough reason, if any, to go buy one.
This is a deadly serious antigun initiative, especially since almost all these points can be accomplished administratively, with the stroke of a pen, with no Congressional approval required. This from the Bloomberg report introduction:
The coalition has identified 40 opportunities in six areas where the Administration could enhance enforcement of existing laws without Congressional action.
This is the most sophisticated attack on RKBA ever, because it it flying under the radar and is now in the hands of the most antigun President in history.

Make no mistake — this is a blueprint for laying the groundwork for the complete disarming of America. Should Obama choose to act on any of these points we — as Sebastian correctly pointed out — "pretty screwed."

BTW, here's the information on the Stinger Pen Gun...I've never actually seen one of these things for sale, although if I do I will be buying one...

I didn't own, or shoot guns till '05, and I am told that the Federal AWB didn't affect CAS, but with this wishlist, and the open ended restrictions on imports, and shotguns, I don't think CAS shooters can slick through.

Thoughts?

Require an ID for buying a gun: Good

Ratcatcher,
You're probably right. Maybe no one will come to your door to get yours, but they will set it all up so that you will have to bring them in your self. That's how the UK and Australia did it, isn't it? The laws will make it so that when you have to say, buy your auto license plates, or fill out your income tax, you have to answer questions about guns. Failure to give the correct answers will constitute a crime that will also lead to your gun confiscation.
And don't kid yourself, there are many "useful idiots" just waiting to help bring this all about. Just look at the press.

Thanks for posting this for us. I'll make sure to spread it around.

Looks like I'll be making more phone calls and writing more letters.

Should bHo choose to act on these, we will all, indeed, be very screwed.

But they will be especially screwed because it will be proof, positive, that there is no such thing as political or legal recourse any more, which doesn't leave a whole lot of options for the gun rights types.

Has anybody read enough history to know what has happened when a people figures out that its government has taken away all their usual legal and political recourses and has backed them into the proverbial corner?

What on earth might independent-minded folks do once they realize their government is going to leave them no other choices or options?

This is what happens when you have more than half of the US voters believing in Socialism. That population consists of idealogues and those wanting "something for nothing" (a. k. a.: "Wealth Re-Distribitors").
Then, they "stack" the courts with their kind and ensure that we will never re-gain our lost freedoms.
Turn out in droves this coming year and throw the bastards out! Join the NRA and learn the facts about crime and guns, then teach everyone that will listen to you. Boycott any establishment that doesn't support "2A".

This is just my personal opinion, but how is reporting your income NOT some run around the 5th Amendment protection from self-incrimination.

I think the same 5th Amendment protections should apply if you are asked or directed to report your gun ownership status on either a driver's license or car registration form or on some income tax forms.
