For the safety and security of the United States, its territories, overseas interests, and its inhabitances (the Nation), any individual with abilities, gifts, or powers (Abilities) that are not normally found in the average human being or are considered to be above and beyond that of the average human being must report to the municipal, state, and federal government for documentation and registration of his or her Abilities. This is to keep track of such individuals during, and possible use in, cases of emergency, threat, terror, war, or other such circumstances of crisis. Any and all individuals who possess Abilities, as described in this document, must report to the local authorities for registration. Upon registration, the individual will be entered into a national database for monitoring. Once the data is entered into the system, it will be shared with the state and municipal governments where the individual resides for local oversight. During the processing period, the individual in question shall remain in state custody until such time where their information has been processed and it is determined safe to release them back into society.
Any individual who does not register his or her Abilities to the proper authorities will be viewed as participating in an act of treason. Once this act has been determined, the individual in question will be kept under military custody as an enemy combatant and will be subject to detainment for an indefinite amount of time. As soon as the individual voluntarily registers his or her Abilities with the authorities, the individual in question will receive a reprieve, freeing the individual from military custody.
When the individual registers with the proper authorities, he or she must give their current legal name, their name as it appears on their birth certificate, their social security number, their current place of residence, their current work status, and a description of their Abilities. Upon registration, the individual’s file will be held at the national headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security, at the state capital in which the individual resides, at the county archives in which the individual resides, and on record at the incorporated township in which the individual is located. But if the individual poses a significant enough threat to the community, the individual must move or otherwise be relocated to a major metropolitan area where the local authorities can adequately respond to any threat the individual may pose.
If any doctor, nurse, midwife, medic, paramedic, or any other type of healthcare provider (Doctor) comes across any undocumented individual who possesses Abilities (Illegal), the Doctor must report the incident immediately. The Doctor who reports the incident has the right to remain anonymous. But regardless of the Doctor’s choice on this matter, he or she will be rewarded for their actions of reporting an Illegal. However, if any Doctor knowingly fails to report an Illegal, the Doctor will be seen as aiding and abetting a treasonous act. The Doctor will then be arrested, fined, stripped of his or her license or certificate to practice or participate in medicine, imprisoned for no less than five (5) years, and barred from ever practicing or participating in medicine again.
After completing and submitting the proper paperwork, the individual with Abilities will be issued a registration card. This card will include a photograph of the individual, the person’s date of birth, current address, mutant classification level, and date issued. Depending upon the individual’s Abilities will determine the individual’s classification level. The classification system to be used shall be regulated by the Gifted Individuals Affairs Office (Office) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. The Office will also regulate how frequent an individual will need to report to the agency to conduct an interview. The interview will be to determine how the individual is doing and reacting to the rest of society.
Due to the potential danger these individuals pose to the Nation, a series of restrictions will be enforced upon them until it is determined that it is safe for society that these restrictions are removed. These preventive measures include, but are not limited to, 1) a restriction on the individual’s movement, 2) prevention from holding public office, 3) prevention from holding a position of public trust, 4) prevention from working in a profession where the individual deals directly or indirectly with the manufacturing, transportation, or trading of weapons, 5) prevention from holding a license or certificate allowing the individual to own or operate a weapon, 6) prevention from working in a profession where the safety and security of others are placed under the individual’s responsibility, 7) prevention from working in a healthcare profession, 8 ) prevention from working in power plants or stations, dams, water distribution facilities, water and waste treatment plants, or any other facility where large numbers of people depend upon the uninterrupted operation or flow of the facility to survive or remain sanitized, 9) prevention from working in occupations where the individual may damage, pollute, or destroy crops or other food products along with sources of fresh and drinkable water, 10) restriction on renting, leasing, or owning land located in isolated or rural areas where the proper authorities are unable to respond in a quick and efficient manner, 11) restriction on owning and selling land or any property in general, 12) restriction on teaching, educating, or otherwise instructing a child or easily persuaded person, and 13) determining if the individual is capable of exercising proper judgment in regards to marriage or other legally recognized forms of personal relationships. Any person who assists an individual with Abilities in violating any of these ordinances will be subject of arrest and punishment.
When an individual with Abilities is given authorization to move to a new jurisdiction, he or she needs to visit a local judge to receive a Certificate of Attendance. This Certificate of Attendance certifies that the individual has reported to the proper authorities upon moving and that he or she has arrived within a new jurisdiction. While acquiring the Certificate of Attendance, the judge is required to inform the individual about the regulations that the municipality has enacted relating to the individual’s movements and actions.
