Will Navajo Gun Registration Lead To Confiscation?

posted on April 8, 2017

We’ve documented multiple time on this website and in America’s 1st Freedom magazine how every mass confiscation of firearms has been preceded by gun registration. So one has to wonder what some leaders of the Navajo Nation are thinking in pushing forward a proposal to register the guns owned by tribal members.

According to a report at lcsun-news.com, a bill proposed in the Navajo tribal council would require individuals who reside on tribal lands and own firearms—including automatic guns, rifles, shotguns and antique firearms—to register those weapons with the Navajo Nation Police Department, which would maintain a central registry. If approved, gun owners would have up to 180 days to register their firearms.

Delegate Davis Filfred said the current measure is just a first step in creating a registration process that he wants to see instituted. Navajo tribal members would be wise to point out to Filfred and other leaders that registration is also always the “first step” toward confiscation.
