Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman Advocates for National Gun Registry During ATF Debate

4

WASHINGTON D.C (VINnews)- In a heated debate over a proposed amendment aimed at removing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ (ATF) ability to establish a gun registry, Far Leftist Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) expressed strong support for the creation of a national gun registry. Her remarks came during a session in which lawmakers discussed the implications of the amendment on public safety and gun ownership rights.

“I think it is a wonderful idea to have a registry of every gun that is owned by a civilian in the United States,” stated Rep. Watson Coleman. Her assertion underscored a significant divide among lawmakers regarding the balance between Second Amendment rights and measures aimed at enhancing public safety through more stringent gun control.

Supporters of the amendment argue that preventing the ATF from establishing a gun registry is crucial to safeguarding constitutional rights and preventing potential government overreach. They maintain that such registries could lead to increased surveillance and control over law-abiding gun owners.

Opponents, however, including Rep. Watson Coleman, believe that a comprehensive gun registry is essential for tracking firearms and reducing gun violence. They argue that knowing where and how many guns are in civilian hands can aid law enforcement in solving crimes and preventing illegal firearm trafficking.

Rep. Watson Coleman’s stance reflects a broader debate within the United States about the most effective ways to address gun violence. Proponents of stricter gun control measures often cite countries with stringent firearm regulations and lower rates of gun-related incidents as models to emulate. Conversely, gun rights advocates emphasize the importance of individual freedoms and the potential risks of governmental overreach.

The discussion over the ATF’s authority and the potential establishment of a national gun registry is likely to continue, as lawmakers and advocates on both sides of the issue grapple with finding a balance that addresses public safety concerns while respecting constitutional rights.

Not a chance lady. The one thing people learned over the years and retrained was when the Govt makes you register your legally own arms , that they will make said arms illegal soon afterwards. The 2nd amendment is there for a reason and she and her ilk are that reason.

I have a better idea.

Since black people like her commit most of the crime, let’s register the names, and locations of every black person. We can create a real-time map to show where they are, so we can keep tabs on them. We can help reduce crime, and make your neighborhoods safer. I wonder how Ms. Coleman would feel about that?
