In that situation you have already given up any chance at resistance because you will be left with only shotguns and bolt actions. It isn’t an
opinion that they would try to push it further it is a fact. Tommy guns used to be legal and they were true assault weapons they mainly banned them to
put an end to Bank robberies and the Mafia. So let me ask you this is the mafia gone did it put an end to bank robberies or since then have criminals
stopped holding up banks with fully automatic weapons. I posted a video earlier that should answer two of the three questions.
We only need to look at Australia to see how weapon bans have worked out for them. Not only did the crime rate go up but the government didn’t stop
there with banning dangerous looking items. They have gone so far that they have banned slingshots, crossbows, blow guns, throwing stars and all kinds
of pointy knives, just about everything you have seen in a martial arts movie but yeah those are weapons. Fact is they didn’t stop there the kept
going with fireworks, bb guns, LASER POINTERS, some kind of Yo-Yo’s, paintball guns, high pressure squirt guns, certain web sites, video games,
literature, and movies plus a bunch of stuff that makes even less sense.
So why exactly do you want to follow Australia’s lead? Oh yeah and don’t forget that they are essentially an island and don’t have outside
influences like Mexico but hey it did wonders for their crime rate it went up 49% and the murder rate stayed the same. They have the illusion of
safety though. Good for them. Our country went the other direction and loosened restrictions on CCW permits the crime rate dropped across the board
So when are we going to talk about the real problem? The reason people are losing their minds.
edit to add
BTW you can’t tell me the government is doing this to protect us or that people really give a damn about life, not when I can go to the convenience
store and buy a pack of smokes. It’s all just an illusion of safety.
