Gun Confiscation at our Doorstep

As the Canadians are wrestling with the elimination of firearms registration, there appears to be a last ditched effort to confiscate guns that the government has recently reclassified as prohibited weapons.

Are we next?

Gun registration/licensing is exactly what makes confiscation possible.

It's just a line on a piece of paper written by dead whitemen that deals with muskets for the National Guard it has no relevance in today's world.

That hasn't stopped our federal government from declaring entire classes of weapons illegal in the past, forbidding their manufacture, and creating such onerous restrictions on ownership of existing arms, that they've become virtually impossible to own. And it hasn't stopped various state and city jurisdictions from prohibiting them, outright, and making it a crime to even possess one.

The SCOTUS deemed RKBA as an indivual right in Heller. No Confiscations are in the foreseeable future.

but allowed restrictions

canada isn't losing all its guns only the ones deemed prohibited.

by the current ruling as long as we are allowed to have some guns they can prohibit a lot of them and then confiscate them.

That was one of the fears I had living in New York state. If I buy a particular gun and 6 months down the road it becomes illegal, I would have to either have to turn it in, sell it to someone out of state or it becomes a permanent safe queen never mentioning it or showing it to anyone.

It started that way in England. First it was handguns, then all semi-automatic firearms, and finally it was all firearms.

Canada is a joke of a country. I don't want to even get started on it. Each province of Canada does more trade with the US State to its south than the rest of the 'country'.
