Every gun you purchase is registered with the fed gov. What the heck makes you think that they will not take them away? They have every bit of info on you that they need.

Saw the old Red Dawn the other night.
1st thing the Cuban Commander(think he was a Cuban) told his guys was to go to the sporting goods store and get the list of all who purchased weapons and go round them up.
Same thing.

With one hundred million gun owners, only one in a hundred has to resist and the government suffers horrible losses and even worse press. Government agents have families to go home to, also.

I have heard that some of these tools have been reported as stolen at some point.

Law Enforcement doesn't even investigate property crimes anymore. The thing may wind up in NCIC as stolen, or it may not.

A bit of American history holds the answer to your question. An earlier tyrant wanted to take the guns and ammo from colonists. That program was to begin at Lexington and Concord.

The rest is history.

Do consider that the last several regimes have been more repressive than that of King George.

I recommend reading the Declaration of Independence, particularly on America holidays.

Many of us buy some and sell them privately later on – so who knows what we have.

Of course, that’s why they want to stop those kinds of sales.

Wherever did you get this idea? It may be so for some guns in some states, but not all guns in all states.

“Every gun you purchase is registered with the fed gov.”

Not true. I’m an FFL in Colorado and when I transmit an Instacheck request to the CBI, no specific firearm information is included. Just whether handguns, long guns, or both are at issue.

Yes, all FFL’s keep paper 4423’s regarding the firearm specifics, but those are in our possession and, in general, no law enforcement can look at these except for very specific reasons and for specific records.

Eventually, these 4423’s are supposed to be sent to the Feds when the FFL’s business terminates, but (for what it’s worth) Federal law prohibits these records from being computerized in any fashion, and no funds are allowed to be spent for that purpose.

The only Federal registry for firearms is for NFA weapons and devices, namely transferable automatic weapons, suppressors, and other legally possessive destructive devices.
