    Gives a New Meaning to the Notion of "Dummy Cords". . .

    For those of us that served in the military for a handful or more of years, and perhaps found themselves assigned to a unit or command that had experienced a loss of a weapon during a training exercise. . . this new proposed law by Harry Reid gives a whole new meaning to the Dummy Cord (i.e., weapon lanyard).

    "Under Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) gun control bill (S. 649), if somebody steals your firearm or you lose it, you can go to prison for up to five years if you have not reported the theft or loss to local police and to Attorney General Eric Holder within 24 hours."

    What I find pretty incredible is that in most states, the penalty for being convicted of stealing a weapon would be less than 24 months in most cases and less than twelve in many, unless the firearm was worth more than $10,000.00. And here we go again, giving the feds involvement in State issues.

    Oh and the first one I lose,,,,I will have no idea what make or model it was or what the serial number was, but I'll be sure to report it.

    The police have to be convinced to come take a report when a gun is stolen. I had a cadet come to my house a couple of years ago. Finger prints all over the place! "Nah. We don't do that. Could be anybody's prints." The report probably never made it to neighboring jurisdictions in the county. Few Nevadans have any use for Reid. Haven't figured out how he keeps getting elected. But hey, my air rifle was taken too. Do you think they'll want arms with no serial numbers? Or will a statement "My guns is gone!" work?

    No serial or make to report on a stolen firearm? That right there will be the justification they use for a national or state level registry because firearms owners can't be trusted to write their serial numbers down to report when they're stolen. And the flame under the frog gets turned up ever more slightly every day..

    My comment was directed at what currently happens. I don't know if it has gotten any better in the past few years, but it used to be a little over 80% of stolen firearms, the owners didn't know the serial number and very often couldn't provide any information to help identify it. The point I was trying to make its that it won't help them recover the firearms from the criminals who stole it,,,, the proposed law will only make more criminals that are easy for LE to catch out of law abiding citizens.

    I wasn't disagreeing with you. What I meant was they'll pass this and then claim because the owner didn't record the serial number the firearm will be untraceable to a theft thereby giving them ammo to argue in favor of mass registration. Then another tragedy will happen and they'll push for a ban on a certain type of firearm. And then another. Until they feel their agenda is complete (and we all know in reality that won't be until they have complete control of what we eat, own, etc.). Incremental socialist progressive democrat collectivism at it's finest.

    Absolutely no doubt. They have been so occupied with repeating the same scripted rhetoric over and over, they have missed entirely certain issues that actually have some validity. Which proves to me without doubt that their agenda is not to reduce crime. And you are right they will jump from one dramatized issue to another when they fail.
