Attention Carry Concealed Licensees, Ham Radio Operators, and Precious Metals Owners: Registration is Confiscation

Think it can’t and won’t happen here? Think again. In every case where a totalitarian dictatorship was progressing which restricts the freedoms and rights of citizens, seizing the firearms of the average person was always and still is goal number one. To make matters worse, the pointing at the Canadian example does nothing to impede the thought process of cowardly Republicans defending the idea because the thought of obtaining more financial support far supersedes their oath of office and to the citizens of the state they represent. Sadly, America will probably end up with a national registry and in the end, conflict between individuals and the government.

The idea that a registry will not be leaked to other government agencies to use against the citizen was shattered with the revelations from Missouri yesterday via the Columbia Tribune article below:

Highway patrol gave feds Missouri weapon permits data

Of course the Federal government has agents and informants embedded within every major state and city law enforcement agency in the country and to believe otherwise is foolish. Thus any data on file within any state government has probably already been accessed by the Federal government and assimilated into the national database should confiscation become the declared action and desire of the national leadership. Yet it does not end there, registration has consequences beyond just firearms it extends to communications and money also.


From Al-Jazeera English service:



Sound crazy? It isn’t as the Iranians, Cubans, and Chinese use every mean possible to intercept, jam and block foreign news sources via radio and the internet. In fact China, the nation which our corporations and politicians are modeling our future after, have begun jamming not just Chinese and Chinese dialect broadcasts into their country but in other languages also:

From a television news show via NTD China (Taiwan):



Why? Why is controlling information to these regimes so important?

In the case of the stories  above it is about receiving information, which has been filtered and jammed via the internet, mediumwave, and shortwave radio for years. Yet the idea of amateur radio operations being interfered with or units confiscated seems to be a foreign concept to the average American citizen. However throughout history, amateur radio operators (ARO’s) have faced brutal times including confiscation when faced with a dictatorship that they refused to work with. Within the Soviet Union the ARO was considered part of the intelligence and military reserve, allowed to communicate with overseas operators not just to establish friendships and work on technical improvements within the communications realm, but to supplement the activity of the parties and indirectly provide intelligence data to the military and KGB. The structure of Soviet Amateur Radio is outlined below from the MIT book, AMATEUR RADIO OPERATION IN THE SOVIET UNION, written by F Gayle Durham with this chart (I’ve cleaned up somewhat):


As one can see in a statist government unified with no protections, ARO’s have few freedoms with the amount of state control. In the past, especially in periods of massive dislocation where the risks of civil war and revolution permeate a nation, radio transmitters and shortwave receivers where confiscated with little regard to personal freedoms. But don’t worry, remember the following phrase:

“It Can’t Happen Here.”

Until it does.

Then again, why would anyone worry about losing their access to personal protection and communications when in fact if the individual has precious metals they can buy their way out of the country and seek freedom, right?



But that’s in Europe, not America so it can’t happen here, right? Well, not so fast:

The excerpt above is from Illinois Precious Metals Purchasing Act, SB3341 which passed the Illinois Senate according to as of March 28, 2012:


Why the need for registration? First off, as written in these pages in the past, future inferred capital games (aka, “Imputed Taxation“) so capital gains taxes can be collected on increases in price for gold and silver on owners to increase state coffers. Secondly, it provides a database should Executive Order 6102 be implemented again allowing for easy collection of precious metals from owners should the economic or political situation become that dire once again. Illinois is setting the standard for other states and the Federal Government to follow and if passed and enacted the world will watch, some of us in horror, as the program begins and how it is enforced.

I remind everyone of these warnings one more time because without personal protection or firearms, without the ability to communicate with and obtain information from various sources, and to have a back up plan of financial freedom via gold and silver any protection plan or survival strategy is null and void immediately.


I can not stress enough that the situation is extremely dire considering the action of the United States Senate and the 16 traitors from the Republican Party who chose personal gain and fame over the United States Constitution. It is only a matter of time once they get away with registering guns in preparation for confiscation that every item in one’s preparation arsenal to deny anyone the ability to survive independently will face a similar fate. Obtain your supplies now, especially gold and silver, before the system collapses not just economically but on the freedoms so many have taken for granted for so long.
