You can keep your guns alright, but you're going to pay dearly for the privilege, end up marked and have them confiscated later anyway. A lot of folks don't want to hear that, but gun owners are being manipulated into a corner.
The powers that be who want us disarmed in order to control dissent want the guns, but must do so incrementally and make a large sum of money in the process. It's like being a smoker, you want 'em and they make you pay. He will issue executive orders, every one of which is going to cost gun owners dearly. Registration, licensing, short-term licensing requiring frequent renewal with ever-increasing licensing cost (already signed into law in New York by Cuomo). They will know where they are and take your money while you hold them and keep them in pristine condition for the day the government decides they have enough support to step in and take them. And, that's only the beginning.
Many of the executive orders and subsequent laws will make it very easy to violate one of those laws which will involve lawyers. This is a class of society to which the vast majority of Congressmen belong and from which many get their funds to run for Congress (i.e. guys like Mostyn). They WANT you to keep the guns, because they are going to be like leeches sucking you financially dry in the process.
Should the United States ever get some men and women of moral foundation (that IS the ultimate problem) into office, then articles of impeachment must be presented against Obama for all of this is a violation of the original 2nd Amendment and its intent. Stockman of Texas is right on in his assessment that if Obama and the Democrats continue, the violation of law must be called into question.
When I ask Mexicans why they do not go back to Mexico and revolt and clean up their governmental problems, the answer is quick and short, "The government will kill us." Very soon, we are going to be in the same predicament. The government is already aiding and abetting crime (Fast and Furious and welfare fraud) and does not want ANY dissent about its corrupt practices. It will all get a lot worse before it gets any better.
Ultimately, the entire question on every issue, be it abortion, guns, "cling to religion", etc., ad nauseum is that the United States has turned away from God and then has allowed immigration of millions from many different countries who do NOT follow what God teaches (even though some profess to be followers of God. The Bible addresses all of this and the consequences and you can go there to read the end of this story.
Despair is a sin.
This is exactly how it will happen. It will be such a gradual process that most wont notice, until it is too late.
Bearing arms is not a privilege.
The loss of freedom happens slowly until its too late.
It will depend, partly, on how fast he can convince the Supreme Justices to retire. If he can get two, it may be over, because who are you going to appeal to?
“lotsa money to be made by politicians on this issue.”
Good observation and I would add lawyers to that as well.
Actually I think this is driven by lawyers - it makes no sense otherwise. Even the optics are stupid, particularly if there is one more shooting this year all of these people who “fixed” the problem will look silly.
It's never too late for freedom.
And my sense of what freedom is.
Of course it will.
Like cars...How in hell did they get Americans to pay to re-register the same damn vehicles over and over and over and over and over instead of only when they change ownership?
What an epic, coast to coast government conjob.
Yes, per the 2nd, you are right. However, government is turning it into a privilege. Thus, the post was written the way it was written. What is happening is clearly a violation of the 2nd Amendment. So, when is anyone in leadership going to step up and DO something about it? Crickets chirping....
We are the People. It is Our Constitution.
The three branches of government serve at Our Pleasure. That is all we need to Remember and to stand by.
So, when did free men require a leader to do anything?
Just don't comply. It's pretty easy. Millions of criminals already ignore those laws.
If that %$#@ John Roberts doesn't have a Websters Dictionary I can send him one.

Now this is really important, so take some time and think about. At the time of confiscation, the operative word becomes "offensive". For positive imagery purposes, think of the British retreat from Lexington and Concord back to Boston. That is what Americans do to tyrants that try to confiscate our weapons.
The Feds can't use the Constitution against us unless we allow it.
And what is this krap about the Supreme Court being the end all be all? They are not supreme beings, and must follow the constitution. BTW, I'm pretty sure a Supreme Court justice can be impeached, constitutionally.
But they don't want the unwashed to remember that, do they?
I’m not paying jack sh!t. And I’m keeping every damn one of them.
F U B O!! and your ilk.
I will keep them and I will NOT pay, I will not give them up, I may sell them at some point in time. That is all I will do. They can Kiss my R.R.A and
Molon Labe (if they can)
the gun over board thing is getting real old
I knew I could not be the only one and that’s nice to know.
Tell us what you really think.
(Mr. Rogers voice off).
The only problem is that the Supremes are already on thin ice legitimacy-wise when they rule on cases involving the feds, at least if they find in the feds favor, because they've ruled in favor of their own paymasters! If you've ever watched a civil or criminal trial, they won't even let you participate as juror or judge if you so much as KNOW one of the parties, let alone work for them.
It boggles the mind that any individual or state takes SCOTUS rulings seriously when they rule for the feds. They go any farther than they've already gone, I'm sure many no longer will.
Eventually many people like the “Bear Jew” will emerge with only a Bat!
It's a moose bite kind of thing. You may as well get over it, because it ain't going away.
Another way of looking at it is "Sheesh, how long can freepers keep a dead meme on life support?"
I'll tell you when I get out of the shower.
Your question is understandable. Do I guess correctly that you are well under age 40?
Leaders arise when it is their time, and often from unexpected places. Leaders will not be found within the present GOP.
Yes, the age question has relevance. :-)
Registration, licensing, short-term licensing requiring frequent renewal with ever-increasing licensing cost ...
because who are you going to appeal to?
Talk about an unexpected win!....*G*
If you think so....
I will NEVER EVER comply.
No registration or surrender no matter what.
Liberty or death. It’s simple.
I'm not in charge. I have things I am required to do, but the outcome? In His Hands.
Can't be worse than that night.
So far, so good. This is better than Lerking, I get to sound off from time to time. So far the flame suit is unused.
Easy for me. Kids are grown and gone, I've met the grandkids, I actually like a couple of them.
I live alone. I still do daily PT. So it's simple and easy for me.
For those with small children? Not so simple, not so easy.
It's going to be up to old, grumpy farts to do the civil disobedience thing.
If you think so....
Last I heard, you were around when dirt was invented and Moses was an E-3.
What's the next right to be eroded? Will we have to get a license to write a blog expressing a political viewpoint? To attend the church of our choosing? To associate with whomever we want?
Just a guess, I don’t mind being wrong. :-)
Good point if you live long enough.
