The menacing police above are from the Ferguson riots. They’re a stand-in for what many gun owners seem to fear the Democrats will unleash on us when they finally get around to banning private ownership of guns. Soon if the Hildabeast wins the presidency. Later if she doesn’t. But confiscation, when it comes, is much more likely to be voluntary than the start of Civil War version 2.0 Huh?
Because we already have a national registry. The one most law-abiding gun buyers sign into when they go through the federal background check the seller is required to make. And the guns we bought on the sly? We buy ammunition for them, right? Probably not with cash. So the feds, via snoopers like the NSA, know exactly the caliber of our off-the-books guns.
So it’ll be a simple matter for the feds to send out letters demanding we turn in our registered and unregistered firearms. Probably to the nearest UPS store which, on a federal contract, will box them up free of charge and send them to a warehouse somewhere.
And those of us who refuse to meet the deadline will soon discover that the FDIC has notified our banks and our brokers and our credit card companies to freeze our accounts until further notice. We’ll be in the poorhouse until we comply. With no one to do battle with. In the electronic age we’re really very easy targets.
