    I think an immediate nationwide confiscation is unlikely. However, we all have to beware of the slow methodical process of undermining gun ownership bit by bit with the backdoor stuff like, ammo taxes, lead and EPA issues, UN treaties, special license's, high-cap magazine bans, etc.

    I keep thinking about a popular signature line I see, and it is the one about guns having two enemies and that is rust and politicians...... it's very true, both work slowly, and almost imperceiveable in their actions. One of the greatest tools we have for strengthening our future 2A status, is our youth. Get them involved, teach them gun safety; don't let the media train them about firearms, we need to do that.

    This type of question is where I try not to let my beliefs and feelings not cloud my answer. My feelings and beliefs are no way it will never happen, how can they ever mess with the 2nd Amendment and our constitutional rights? But as one other poster mentioned Never say Never. And In light of recent and past events, and the actions currently being proposed, it is plausible that they would attempt this extreme opportunity to do so.

    Probably quite a few unfortunately. Look at what happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

    I beleive the natural tendencies of bureaucracies is to increase their power. Our government is a bureaucracy. Therefore, without constant vigilance to push back against the natural tendencies of our government, it would lead to a total confiscation. I beleive it could happen. I believe it will only become a certainty if we (all citizens collectively) allow it.

    I don't look for a blatant gun confiscation. But I do expect some type of ammo restrictions that will result in a default disarmament.

    I have no doubt that our current tyrants would be quite willing to confiscate all firearms. I also have no doubt that at some point in the future it will be tried. They'll not do it all at once but gradually nibble away similar to Great Britain. It took 80 years for it to happen over there.

    I was thinking the same thing. I am not sure that our military men and women would be a party to it (some may, but I think a lot would not), but I think that more LEOs would (although I think there are a lot of LEOs who wouldn't), particularly in big cities like NYC, Philly, DC, etc.

    The Constitution can be changed at any time by 1 or 2 votes on the court. It is what ever 5 of that 9 say it is. So depending who is on the court it could happen.
    We have also seen Government leaders that have had no respect for the constitution.
    The last question would be if they did who's going to stop them?
    If they want to do it no one can or will stop it by the time it goes to a court it would be to late.

    The confiscation would go like it did in OZ (Australia) in the late 1990. Up until they passed the National gun laws an Oz citizen could own any firearm the state would allow. So here is a link to the brief of Oz gun laws:

    While this seem to suggest everything is rosie, the actual crime rate has increased.

    While some may Poo-Poo the thought of that happening here, you need to look at the infusion of anti-gun money coming from the likes of: Rebecca Peters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia who is funded by Soros and has a multi-store office building in London to house her staff and push her agenda!

    I agree with all those that mention small restrictions over longer periods of time. We must stand up against this. As many of the 2A politicians have said recently, no new gun laws, better enforce the laws we have.

    I doubt a confiscation of all firearms will ever take place. These guys are smart: they will pick us apart a little at a time an encounter less resistance that way. The end result may be the same, but it'll happen over years.

    There are plenty of high ranking gov't officials that would be working on complete confiscation right now if they thought for a moment they could actually get away with it.... no, they'll work on slowly eroding our rights a little at a time in the name of "national security".

    I believe they might give it a try. Even though it's very risky on their part so long as there are people like me willing to die in the fight.
    Mass confiscation? I know it won't go down like that. It will be the weak first, (government preys on the weak or the weak-minded) then the weak giving up their power and neighbors for chocolate or a Starbucks.
    If I woke up one day and this was going down? I won't be awake for long. I figure they won't bother ringing the doorbell. Be that as it may. Some folks don't think that people like me even exist. While you continue to worry about the future, I've already made up my mind.
    You want consolation or comfort? Go to sleep with a gun in your hand.....a chocolate bar is gonna be melted by the time you wake up.

    Honestly I chuckled a bit thinking that QK's first post was directed at the OP and the content of the subject. But for now I will not comment due to the fact that carrying out actions that are the very meaning and spirit of the Second Amendment, is illegal. So my answer is, comply and give them all away to help aid in the tyrannical movement.

    In light of this, I would like to report the illegal activities of my local, state, and federal governments.

    They have all, to some degree, infringed upon my ability to keep and bear.


    On a more serious note...

    I agree with several others here; it will not be a massive shift...

    The political vultures will pick away at the 2nd until there is nothing left.

    I will do my part to educate my kids and as many around me as possible though; I hope all here do as well!
