Now this is a rather weird twist...wonder what the anti gun nuts think about this?

U.S. Supreme Court's 1968 Haynes v. U.S. decision:
Haynes, a convicted felon, was convicted of unlawful possession of an unregistered short-barreled shotgun. He argued that for a convicted felon to register a gun was effectively an announcement to the government that he was breaking the law and that registration violated his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination. The court, by an 8 - 1 margin, agreed, concluding: "We hold that a proper claim of the constitutional privilege against self-incrimination provides a full defense to prosecutions either for failure to register a firearm…or for possession of an unregistered firearm." (Summary from American Rifleman, March 2000, page 20)

So, when these gun registration schemes are announced, be aware that only lawful gun-owners are required to register their firearms.
Unlawful owners are exempted from registration laws due to their constitutional protection against self-incrimination.


US Supreme Court Decision

I knew it!
The criminals have more RIGHTS than we do, both in the USA and in Oz.

Maybe its time to change profession.

The way I understand it, the rights don't come from the feds and they have no power to restrict those rights so the laws are all unconstitutional and we have a duty and a right to ignore them.

Yep! I'm on another list.
