Makes it illegal to own a firearm unless it's been registered, and you have a Drivers License, and you have a Social Security Number, and you have been fingerprinted, and submit to mental evaluation at their whim, and report changes in address within 60 days.

As I have said many times before, it lifted a huge weight of worry from my shoulders when I came to the conclusion that I would never adhere to any Hitler-esque Nazi Germany law changes in regard to firearms passed by the US government. I went from "Oh I fear for my future right to own firearms" to "Why sweat a law I cannot prevent from passing if they decide they will pass it when I have absolutely no intention of following it in the first place?"

When the knock and search comes and they attempt to determine where the firearms they are aware I own are at, they will be granted one and only one chance to save their lives when I tell them (through the closed door) "Nope, sorry, I no longer own any guns. now leave." If they persist, some of them will wish they had taken that one chance. (and the other fact I have reconciled myself with is that in the aftermath I'll still have no worries as a dead man tends not to have many worldly concerns.)

Right on Bro! I'm with you


They can pass any bill they want but they can also kiss my American ass and go straight to hell!

I pay their salary. They work for me. I am their boss, not the other way around!

Anybody that wants my guns is welcome to try and take them. They WILL die for doing so!
