    "You won't take my guns!!!"

    Clearly, a lot of folks are worried that the federal govt. is going to pass new gun regulations.

    This may indeed happen. But one thing that will NOT happen, is the confiscation of any firearms.

    If a new Assault-Weapons Ban is enacted, it will of course not affect presently owned guns.

    And unless you live in one of the few states that have any gun registration (like NY & Massachusetts), the govt. doesn't know which guns you own, so they can't tell you to turn in any guns that they don't know you have.

    The only way the govt. could find out who owns newly-banned weapons, would be by forcing ALL gun dealers and FFLs around the nation to hand in ALL of their transaction records. And that simply will not happen.

    So yes, it is possible that the days of being able to buy 10+ round magazines may be over soon. The days of being able to buy AR-15s and AK-47s may be coming to end.

    But no one is gonna come for the guns you already own.

    You may no longer be able to buy accesories, parts, and ammo for your newly-banned gun, but you will keep the gun.


    ....just my two cents.

    Tell that to the Brits, Germans, Aussies, Canadians, and any number of nationalities over the last 70 years.

    They may not come knocking on your door, but your choice will be "Turn them in or learn to like prison if you get caught with them".

    Unless you are Obama posting here, you can't know that. Everything that you said that they can't do, well, they can. The US Govt has waaaaay too much power over the citizens now. If they [Govt as a whole] want a thing done, it gets done. Morals, scruples, and good judgement be damned.

    Who is going to confiscate the guns? Anyone think a congressmen is going to do it. Not hardly.

    Are the local cops going to do it. I doubt it. They want to go home to their wives and kids at night. They certainly aren't going to put up with door to door searches of folks homes day after day. Are they going to give up all their guns except their duty weapons. Nope.

    it happened with Katrina,in NO, and I am a LEO. I doubt some of my fellow officers wouldn't participate in a gun grab,if they were ordered to.

    That is what the controls are in place for the National Guard, and the UN is for.

    The 20/60/20 rule applies to all things in human behavior. 20% won't, 60% might, 20% will without hesitation. Insert your action here.

    The quote below is from an active member of the United States Army on Facebook that I know. Partly edited due to his cursing, you'll see that in blue. Don't believe there aren't misinformed/misguided members of the military who won't storm your doors to take your guns.

    "Civilians should NOT be able to own firearms. Fudge the right to bear arms! Everytime I check CNN, I hear of some retard who went on a killing spree. I think at this point, the military should declare Marshall law and we should go house to house, recovering every instrument of death. Just saying."

    So, the government "offers" to buy back your guns first. Then they "demand" you turn them in. Then the "confiscation" begins. Of course during all this the Obama regime does what it does best, enacts rules and regulations shutting down arms manufacturers and ammo manufacturers. Pretty soon, they begin offering "rewards" for turning in your anti-patriotic neighbors that refuse to hand their weapons over. They are coming for your guns and ultimately you. You can pretend it's not going to happen and keep saying "that will never happen here"....but it's coming. I suggest you get your hands on some weapons that don't have a paper trail...that's my plan.

    hopefully, that isn't the mentality of those I knew when I was Ad. And I think confiscation would lead to revolution

    How many times are you/they willing to be shot at on a daily basis? Yes, some people would hand them over, but many others would fight to keep theirs. Lots of good old boys have much more firepower than most of the LEO's carry or are prepared for.

    History tells us that is incorrect.

    Several states, my former state of Connecticut being one, passed "assault weapon" bans. A finite amount of time was provided to get rid of any gun not meeting the new restrictions (all related to cosmetics, of course), after which the possessor of such weapons was liable for felony prosecution. There was NO "grandfathering" of weapons except for active LE. So while there was no direct government confiscation, there was no legal means to continue possession, either.
