It won’t work the way most think.
It will start out with a national registration program. With that registration will come a registration tax, just like your car. Every year you will have to renew your registration and pay the tax. The tax will gradually increase. It will initially be small, maybe $50. Most gun owners, being law-abiding citizens will comply. Then, each year the registration fees will increase until a majority of gun owners can’t afford to pay the fee each year.
The law abiding gun owner will have the choice to either pay the tax he can’t afford, sell his guns, or refuse to register. For those who don’t register, there won’t be SWAT raids except for possibly a few high profile raids. Instead, you simply won’t be able to buy ammo, reloading supplies, hunting licenses, or shooting range memberships. If caught with one, you will face stiff fines and confiscation.
It will be gun elimination through attrition. It will be so gradual, there will be very little resistance, no CWII, no revolution. Just bureaucrats adding a little bit of tyranny at a time along with a spoon full of sugar so you swallow it.
by the time they start doing credit card snoops, the masses will have acted accordingly and they and their toys won’t be at home.
They already pulled that with my house. Now, it's theirs, and I just pay rent on it to them, even though I "technically" own it outright.
I'm thinking not.
