It was the ideal “good guy with a gun” story, at least at first. Two home invaders broke into an elderly man’s house. Thankfully, the man had inherited a gun from his father, which likely saved his life. Instead of succumbing to violence from the home invaders, as so many victims face daily, this many shot and killed his assailants. Mark one down for the good guys.
Unfortunately, now that man, Ronald Stolarczyk of Oneida County, NY, does not get to go about his business. He’s been arrested and charged with a felony because he didn’t register the firearm after he inherited it.
Keep in mind, the gun was legally registered by his father. Stolarczyk has the right to own the weapon now. But his 2nd Amendment right is being infringed upon because, according to New York laws, he’s a criminal.
Gun registrations do not protect people. They are a method of control various government’s use so they can track down and confiscate guns when the time comes. That’s it. Gun registrations do not stop criminals from getting weapons. They do not punish criminals further for having their weapons unregistered, at least not in a significant way. Gun registrations are specifically targeted against law-abiding citizens. Criminals will go about their business whether there’s a gun registry or not.
Gun owners’ rights activist Colion Noir took to the airwaves to defend Stolarczyk and call out progressives for having a useless gun registry in the first place. If the left fought criminals as hard as they fought law-abiding gun owners, crime would take a beating.
