Is Gold and Silver Registration Coming to Illinois?

So let me get this straight.  First they want gun registration and now precious metal registration?  I’m sure the government would only use such information in our best interests, because as we all know: Your Government Loves You.  Sounds reasonable, after all, only “terrorists” buy guns and gold anyway.

Meet the ” Precious Metal Purchasing Act” or SB3341, brought to you by the lovely folks at the Illinois 97th General Assembly:

Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Precious Metal Purchasing Act. Provides that a person who is in the business of purchasing precious metal shall obtain a proof of ownership, create a record of the sale, and verify the identity of the seller. Provides that a person who is in the business of purchasing precious metal shall not pay for the precious metal in cash and shall record the method of payment. Requires the purchaser to keep a record of the sale for one year or, if the purchase amount is over $500, for 5 years.

In Liberty,
Mike

  1. Wow, they must be getting desperate!

  2. Weren’t they trying to do this in Oregon or Washington a couple years back?

  3. In recent years, there’s been a recurrent quip by winners of the Academy Award, Golden Globe or what-have-you: “(Insert name of unnominated collaborator), I’m really just accepting this award for you, too. There’s no way this would have happened with you. But, uh, Let’s Keep It At My House, OK?” (audience laughter).
    As various forms of registration and permits, titles and zoning have eroded the very concept of ownership, we have become just temporary stewards of the property we own. Control and dispensation of the property having been conveyed to the state through those codes, with rent charged through attendant fees.
    We are just not freemen upon the land, as we are led to believe.

  4. I was born in Chicago…..and im sick and tired of these leftist trying to control EVER PART OF OUR LIVES!!!!! IM READY TO SELL EVERYTHING AND MOVE TO TEXAS…..CARRY MY HOLSTERED 6-SHOOTER IN PUBLIC, WEAR A COWBOY HAT, AND YELL OUT YEEE-HAWWW……AND F**K ILLINOIS!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Except we’re not an open carry state … at least not yet. So get a CC permit and tuck that holster in your waistband and cover what’s left with a shirt. Then you’ll be OK. Oh, and uh … ye. Haw. :)
