Mandating a fee is punitive not regulatory. Here lies the problem. If a fee is mandatory then the choice to not register should be given. Why? Well, it is mandatory to register your car if you are to drive it, but it is the individual’s choice to have a car. The registrant is not afforded the choice so it can be nothing but punitive which makes it ex post facto thereby making the act of registering a punitive measure and unconstitutional.

The registry by it’s nature is punitive and does break Constitutional law. That truth in time will be proven. There are two persons in violation of the spirit and letter of the US. Constitution. One is the law enforcement agency and/or officers. The other is the person being registered. It is in violation of the officer’s responsibility (their position) to uphold and enforce constitutional law as much as it is a violation of the individual’s rights not to register because of those unconstitutional ex post facto punitive measures.

We have in the past set aside the US Constitution and these provisions at times of war by the incarceration of Japanese citizens, the rounding up and murder of native Americans and the rights of women denied and that of blacks in the south. Remember these citizen after completing their probation, therapy and time served are by law entitled to the rights of all other citizens. Not to allow such is a slap in the face of God and all those that died to support that document we should hold most dear. TRUTH
