I think the point is that some of these may be very subtle civil liberties being eroded, but who's to say when or if it will stop. You know the old saying
"give them an inch, they'll take a mile". If you look at how the invasion of privacy has been trampled on, then that is a good example. There are many that will say"why should you care if you are doing nothing wrong". Then they should watch the movie "Minority Report" because thats where we are headed.

What has the government stopped you from doing today that you could do freely in the past? This same question was asked on c2c few months back, no caller could give a good answer to the question, all who called in just gripped that the government is taking away our freedom etc….etc, but no one could give an example, so now I pose the same question to you.

When I was a kid I could buy ammo all day long, didn't matter for what type of a gun either. Kids can't do that today, 18 yrs for shotgun shells/ rifle and 21 for pistol.

If your government kicks into NWO mode, a few guns isn't really going to save anyone.
