Slow down, and read my post. "People like that" was in reference to the description provided by Lair, which obviously wasn't describing all gun owners. Let not your jimmies be rustled, JJ.

What's important is the fact that it already has started.
Should we wait until we get to that point to then care?

What they are looking to pass in 2013 is already too much. It's already gone to far.

According to the people who want you to buy guns. In reality, you're free to own as many guns as you can afford to buy (from the people who are instilling fear of government into you). It's staggering to see so many people being manipulated at once.

I have sat in conference rooms and at luncheons with fairly high-ranking politicians in CA government who have been very frank about their desires and plans to rid the United States of every single gun not carried by a policeman or soldier. To hear them say it, every gun is a bad gun.

That was actually funny.

I remember whn the Clinton ban went into effect, and there were guys like you on every street corner. That was nearly 20 years ago, but we all still have our guns.

I'll PM you my phone number. Call me when the big bad gubmint comes for your guns, and I'll cover your flank.

I certainly hope not, and don't expect that it will. But there are significant elements (at least in CA) who 1) have some level of government power and influence and 2) would confiscate every gun in the country if they could.

The new bill says something in regard to limiting the ability to sell "assault" weapons. If you own some now thats ok, but upon your death they must be surrendered to the govt.

What do you call that?

If Cali didn't have such a coo coo government I'd consider moving there for the climate and scenery alone.

Rational fear.

When you die, you'll no longer be allowed to own an assault weapon. Truly a travesty.
