Good point. It right up there with the Estate tax.
What you had aquired in life, now belongs to the Gov't after you die.
Can anyone justify that to me?
Justify it? No Explain it?
Pretty simple. The boiling frog. People are expecting something big to happen all at once when the real danger comes. That's to say that you don't
have to worry until guns are completely banned. As long as they're only taking little baby steps like this, people will not worry so much.
But we all know that every baby eventually learns to walk perfectly.
They are not taking the guns from the old timers because they know these people are not going to live that much longer. If they are required to
register them, they can be confiscated at some future date (likely when the owner dies). It's not worth it to make a scene taking the guns away from
these people when they can have them soon enough anyway.
The next generation will probably not be gun enthusiasts. They will give up their guns easier just like this generation is more willing than the
previous ones. It literally will be a progressive (or incremental) ban.
