This quote came from a member of this forum who lives in Costa Rica.Things didn't change all of a sudden here, but rather little by little. For many years we had very relaxed regulation with regards to firearms and things worked perfectly fine. You could go into any gun shop, buy a gun and walk out or even bring one from the US in your checked baggage, declare it at the airport, pay a small fee and you were good to go. All of sudden with the Nicaragua/Contras situation, the government slowly started introducing minor changes to the firearms' law and people sat back and said "don't worry, it's not that bad". That's how it started. Now after a few years of allowing the government to introduce little pieces of legislation here and there, they are finally ready to land the final blow and soon there will be PROHIBITION.
I know most of you in the US are not worried about Obama's gun control, but I urge you to fight for every inch of your rights or you will regret it later.
Don't rest so easy and assured that things will turn out ok for firearms freedoms here in the USA. We can NEVER rest easy about such things.
