"Will the try and regulate the H*** out of them? Absolutely. Come for them? Well . . . again, I just don’t agree."

I believe you're correct. Coming for them would be stupid.

It's much more likely that they will make them illegal and then prosecute gun owners (new criminals) as they wish.

Once everyone is a criminal they can do whatever they want, justified by the law.

The formula is simple, tested in recent history and works when the citizenry is pre-occcupied with the tastes of free bread and circuses, demagogued to pit one segment of the populace against another by creating scapegoats and by instilling a false sense of security from the state over liberty.

Regulate and ban firearms + registration + confiscation. Add in incremental small amounts to prevent a catastrophic explosive reaction. Make a harsh example out of the few hardliners through demonizing, isolating and targeting. Make government "entitlements" dependent on all of the above. End state: Turn citizens into subjects slaved to the state.

The retention of freedom and liberty requires constant vigilance.

The problem is, if one is going to be in for a penny, so to speak, what prevents them being from being in for a pound? If I'm going down for just owning one, I might as well use it for its intended purpose.
