    What if it becomes illegal to own guns and you have to surrender them?

    I recently read this disturbing "interview" of an insider from DHS.

    DHS Insider Report: Coming This Spring: "Life for the Average American is Going to Change Significantly".

    I don't know if what he says is true or not. So I am asking a hypothetical question of the members: What if the federal government made it illegal to own guns, shotguns and rifles and they offered an amnesty period where one could turn in his/her arms without any consequence? Would you surrender your arms? What if they threaten to haul you and your family away to a detention camp if you don't surrender the arms? The government knows what you own from the registration process when you bought the arms. My question assumes that the 2A is ignored/violated/trashed.

    What are your thoughts? (Be careful what you say and how you say it since the government may be watching/listening/spying.)

    In answer to your question, it could get interesting and — depending upon to whom one listens — a little noisy.

    We won't know unless it happens, and I think the odds are pretty slim.

    No. I will not surrender my guns. I will, however, use them in defense of my rights if necessary. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

    Interesting.

    Propaganda, or forewarning? Who knows?

    All I know is that the next two years before the next mid-terms is going to be intense, and the following two years after that until the next general election is going to be very interesting.

    Wait, guys, wait. What if. What if the government insider is really a double-agent? Telling us what the government wants us to hear about what they don't want us to hear?

    What if it becomes illegal to own guns and you have to surrender them?

    Then the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been desicrated and the next "R e v o l u t i o n" has begun.

    I went fishing out in the Gulf of Mexico and I put it on the side of the boat for a second, and then I got a nice fish on and accidentally knocked it into the water. That's my answer and I am sticking to it.

    What guns?
    The problem with gun control is that drugs are already illegal.

    As stated by our esteemed members, 'they' would have to get rid of the Constitution... ain't gona happen...

    However, 'they' could levy taxes so high on known firearms that many would probably turn them in? Or those firearms may fall overboard... that would be several trips for me...
