Skip to comments.Gun confiscation: How will it start?
Posted on 01/02/2013 4:03:29 PM PST by rustyboots
With all the recent talk about gun control, the high level of ammo/firearm purchasing and the just demonstrated lack of GOP gonads on fiscal matters, I started to wonder just how fast they would roll over for DiFi? But I guess the real question would be; If Difi got her wish on her new bill, how would they start if millions resisted? Would the government realize that there wasn't going to be a cheerful obedience to the new law and just let millions get away with this resistance? If there decided to go after gun owners who refused to register, how would they do it? Do they do massive overnight raids on FFL dealers/gun stores? Do they do the midnight raids on the common man? And then where do they start? What would happen if they raided 50 different locations in Texas versus raiding 50 different places in Kansas? Will we see resistance then? Of if successful, will the rest of America just bend over and grab their ankles? Just curious what many of you think? After 57 years, I am beginning to fear my government.... and many of the citizens of this great country.
Let’s see what happens in IL. It looks like they may confiscate most guns there.
A gun will buy ten gallons of milk.
Or five gallons of gas.
Or a case of Kansas T-bones.
Take your choice.
Oh, BTW, if your neighbor has guns and doesn’t turn them in, you will get a 3 month supply of food for reporting it...
Oops. fogot to switch my computer back to semi-auto.
It was funny a few times....but not anymore.
I OWN LEGAL GUNS....and continue to own them. Period.
Well, you could hide your guns. If enough people do that, what will the government do?
I predict bloodshed, on the part of the "authorities". And rightfully so - no state has the right to supercede the God-given right to self-defense which is partly enumerated in the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
We have ways of dealing with gun grabbers...
Praying it won’t come to that, but the fact that confiscation and “control” are even being talked about makes me think - may your aim be true.
But carry on...........
But they will.
History is repeating, and even among ardent Republicans I know - they refuse to believe such a thing ‘can happen here’.
These are the same idiots who refuse to believe Obama is a Marxist, and he’s just your typical Democrat whose term is up in 4 years and we will right the ship of state in 2016.
Clueless and willful ignoramuses, the lot of them.
Well, They gave up their guns in Canada; and they gave up their guns in Australia for cryin out loud! The land of men and outlaws! without so much as a peep! What makes anyone think that Americans are going to be any different when the sheriff comes knocking at the door? I personally have grave concerns sorry to say.
“If they decided to go after gun owners who refused to register,... “
And they would gain that knowledge how?
Credit Card checks for gun releated purchases?
And who will “they” send to your door?
And since news travels at the speed of light....Many will see this coming.....and....plan accordingly.
1% non-compliance is more citizens than law enforcement.
And that assumes “they” would have 100% participation.
THAT won’t last long!
Also went to Gander Mtn
Were cleaned out of 223, 762 x 39 and 762 x 51 ammo
Clerk laughed when asked when could get more “ maybe in 2037...”
Had to settle for some 12 gauge 00 ......
Hey, they kick your doors down for drugs. Why not guns?
Should total confiscation be attempted, all they will do is issue warrants for all known/registered gun owners and wait. The next time you drive the officer runs your tag and see an outstanding warrant. Whaddaya gonna do? Start a running gun battle with himr and bring the whole force down on you? Or how about your family being with you - gonna risk them? i.e. Turn in your guns or stay in jail and risk your job, etc.
Typical of Washington, they’ll put the load on the police forces and pick you off one or two at a time. Maybe each trooper will get a new quota system - to keep the frogs from yelling about the hot water - each pick off no more than 10 or so a day. Yeah, it will take a while but with all 50 states doing it, confiscation will be accomplished with little or no bloodshed - and no door-to-door raids.
There aren’t any in this state and many states, except those requiring the Federal Class III licence.
Full Auto, etc.
Family transfers, private sales, tens of millions untraceable....
Are you saying that they’d never do it, or that it wouldn’t work?
Google “guns for groceries”
They already tried it and it did work.
So carry on, J-off!
Sooner, rather than later..
