Try as the socialists will, they will never take our hunting, self-defense, anti-tyrannical weapons from us. There are just too many and they can't muster the forces to confiscate them all.
They can try their incremental approach as they do and have succeeded for many of their socialist anti-liberty causes over the years. Sen. Feinstein and others can forward their most radical legislation, but they have already loss with so many guns, mags, and ammo flying off the shelves since Obambi soiled our White House. Sales have increased some 3 fold since he was re-elected and just after the horrific Newtown massacre. People learn.
I read every day about those who have never had a firearm going out to buy them. I also read about the numerous people applying for CCW permits. I also see the various States relaxing their laws for the above. The FBI had to shut down their system some days back because of all the legit buyers requesting background checks.
There is no going back. Pass any law they want, other than some wimps, few are going to give up their weapons. And just what is the DOJ going to about that? Without the assistance of the Military or National Guard, there is NO way they can enforce it.
We are secure in right to self-defense. It's not going to change. We are the original freedom-loving people and we got there with our guns.
Last thought for the socialist controllers: If ALL guns were outlawed tomorrow and even All confiscated, do they not understand there would be an under-ground market for guns...much like drugs which continue to flood our nations? Yes, DU dummies, that would happen. They would flow in from Mexico and other countries. The bad guys would still have access to guns.
I don't think it could be done with that.
A simple question must be asked: Would people be buying all of these weapons if they truly trusted their government?
And a corollary to that is are they buying all of these weapons only to hand them over?
For the first time, I am hearing people talking about the REAL meaning of the 2A, and that is a good thing. The 2A was NEVER about hunting or sporting purposes; it was and is about preventing tyranny Judge Andrew Napolitano (one of my favorites) recently had a column entitled “The right to shoot tyrants, not deer”.
The right to shoot tyrants, not deer
If all current to date firearms, ammo and mags are “grandfathtered” with no new sales, I think we’d have an uneasy peace for a while.
We have enough stocks on hand to last for decades. Mags don’t wear out quick. Ammo lasts.
But if they criminalize any legal 2012 guns, ammo or mags, all bets are off. Many will not register, and will not turn them in, period.
