Finally a liberal had the balls to say what I've suspected all along.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    I don't think it will make it on a federal level, but liberal states will try it. California has required registration for all sport utility rifles. It doesn't take much of an imagination to see where this can go.

    Maybe Cumo and the NYC Mayor can get together and exchange saliva and then hold hands because they refuse to hold a gun to defend themselves or their constituents and walk off toward a Diverse Utopian Rainbow to Never Never Land together and hopefully neither will come back.:devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil:

    There trying to ban Assault Rifles, 32oz soft drinks. How about a ban from coming south? That would work for me.There are many more gun supporters than gun haters. The media is whipping the Libs up on gun control and making It look like most people want the the ban. This was done before but in 1994 they wouldn't renew the law so it expired. If there were that many gun haters the law would have been renewed. The Libs are too stupid to understand how much they are helping gun sales at present. It's odd how things work out. Think Positive for Christmas! I'm positive there're idiots. :bang: Later,

    This^. When the theoretical turn-in amnesty ends, there will be door to door searches. At some point there will be killings. If the deceased is a cop, they will ratchet up the violence same as no-knock drug raids. Wrong houses will be hit (same as drug raids) and the cops will seize all weapons, not just black rifles. I honestly believe this has the potential to spark a civil war.

    Do I think there are some mindless LEO's and military that would do whatever they are told? I certainly do, but I don't think they are enough of a percentage to make confiscation on any large scale a reality. When it comes to the UN, I think that would go over like a turd in a punchbowl. I'm not ruling out confiscation, but I think it will be a few more generations before it has a chance.

    If the U.S. government brings in foreign troops to do that, the gloves will really come off. The Civil War will be like a Sunday social in comparison.

    I venture to say they would never make landfall before our military would quickly choose sides, and our current command structure would be reorganized with a quickness.

    Good point. However, I do feel that a nationwide confiscation order would be met with groups of armed citizens, at least here and there. It would get messy fast.

    Seems to me that a lot of folks have forgotten that the civil war got started by some people sayin' "y'all ain't gonna tell ME what to do!" A little insurrection here, some federal enforcement there.....a few years later, over a half a million people were dead.

    Regarding Katrina, the NOLa police department has long been known to be among the most corrupt in the country. It was in their best interest - at least the ones who didn't just say "screw this" and walked off the job - to seize their subjects' weapons.

    What concerned me the most was the LEOs from outside Louisiana going door to door. The CHP officers beating the old woman with an antique revolver comes to mind.

    Yep, the rent-a-cops from out of state did a lot of the heavy lifting after Katrina. The locals were either AWOL, or they knew they could be wearing a target on their backs for the rest of their careers. If any effort to confiscate weapons is attempted, I'm pretty sure the resistance will be more than just the occasional firefight.

    All I can say is... I would not respect the badge if they come to my door... They would be viewed as an intruder and dealt with accordingly... As I am sure they will deal with me in the same manner... Turning law abiding people into criminals with a swipe of a pen...

    Serious question...What authority do out-of-state cops have? Is there a federal law? Are they required to have a working knowledge of the local laws?

    If I hear banging at my front door, and I see armed people that are NOT wearing the uniform of my county sheriffs, they will be considered home invaders.

    The same people that say there is no way they could find and round up 15 million illegal aliens are the same ones that think they can find and round up all 300 Million firearms.
