1. You will see a gradual elimination of certain styles of guns, ammunition, and magazines.
2. Will be making certain styles of guns, ammunition, and magazines illegal to sell.
3. Will be making certain styles of guns, ammunition and magazines illegal to import or export.
4. Will be adding to the styles of 1,2 & 3, with taxes levied on the remaining.
5. Will be a call for good citizens to voluntarily turn in guns to local governmental agencies.
6. Will be additional taxes to keep the few types that are still legal.
7. All guns will be registered and ammunition can be purchased from the government only.
8. It will be illegal to sell any gun.

I do not see the "door to door" approach happening, either. I believe some LEOs would accept such an assignment and some would not. I also believe that many that accepted the assignment would change their mind after they heard the inevitable stories of people fighting back and refusing to give them up. I am in no way endorsing such actions, merely stating that I believe many would not react positively to such a confiscation.

Listen for the words you will hear them. "reasonable restriction" Restriction we can all agree on" No one needs a ____.
Want to have some fun join one of your local anit-gun groups sit it on meeting, heck get elected to office it is really fun we you get busted.
In reality the Govt. has a lot more time on Earth than we do as individuals. So really all they have to do is see that the schools continue to poison the young kids minds and make them believe that firearms are inherently bad and evil and eventually guns fade away by just being Grandfathered out of existence.
Which is why the shooting sports that get kids involved in the shooting sports are so doggone important to the survival of gun ownership.
Positive shooting sports counteract the negativity of anti-gun indoctrination.
No kid that ever goes out for a fun day of shooting even a .22 rifle is ever likely to cast a future vote for a gun banning politician.
If it happens, it will be done the same as it was in GB and Australia, in increments.

Gradualism is the way it will probably happen, short of a second civil war. If that happens, all bets are off. I would prefer to think that enough people will wake up before it is too late. I think we are currently seeing some rumblings from those who have a clue, or are figuring it out. Maybe it isn't too late.
I can envision at some point down the line when guns will be banned in America. "They" have been chipping away at it for years with many successes I might add.
There was a recent thread concerning the thoughts of Supreme Court Justice Scalia.
"Justice Antonin Scalia, one of the Supreme Court's most vocal and conservative justices, said on Sunday that the Second Amendment leaves room for U.S. legislatures to regulate guns, including menacing hand-held weapons."

Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."
allowing guns on schools, in all places accessible to the public witch are not otherwise restricted by law (private businesses, libraries, etc), combating a mandatory permits and/or reducing the requirements for the permit, etc.
I know I will probably never get my way 100%, but I have to fight for it anyway because the government and anti-gun types are pulling in the other direction (total ban) hard. They'll never quit, and so neither can I.
In truth I'm actually comfortable with most gun laws as they are right now. However, as soon as I and other like-minded folks relax, the pull will go in the other direction, and so we must fight on.
It's already started. We may take a step forward here and there, but over time they will keep whittling away until it is gone. The only question is how long. The general population will be like a frog sitting in a pot of water with them slowly turning the heat up. Eventually, the water will be boiling and the frog is sitting there not even realizing that his butt is being cooked.

Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
It is easy to cheer when some one says ,From my cold dead hands, while no danger exist. But I have often wondered just how many would follow through with it.
I think the Government will use heavy taxes on firearms an ammo, making them ostensibly out of reach for the common man.
They will use the criminal unjust system to make outlaws of some of the populace, thereby putting them out of reach of firearms(legally)
They will slowly, and incrementally outlaw certain firearms at different times.
They will make it illegal to hand down(will) firearms to anyone thereby making THAT firearm illegal.
And most likely more that I, and the Government haven't thought of
Now how many of these have you NOT seen implemented already?
