    How many guns were turned in? How many refused? How many were prosecuted. How many guns from those who refused were confiscated? Did it stand up in court?

    You just finished telling me in another thread that confiscation won't happen.

    So what's your point?

    Is the government coming for your guns?

      I don't think confiscation will happen only on a background check only law, and that's what were discussing....as background checks are already done federally in all dealer sales.

        If registration were tied to a new national law....that's a different story, and I would have a different view of it.

       I would not be for it, I would not think it is right, I might not even comply....not sure, as it hasn't happened yet.  I do know, that I agree with others...if registration became a reality, I would want a part of that law to have a written guarantee that it would never go beyond the registration.  Confiscation would be a legal impossibility by the same law promoting registration....a promise in writing that any gun I register would never be taken.

      With that said, I don't think registration itself will ever pass nationally, in this political climate.  Could that change?  Perhaps.....I just don't think it will pass. I'm glad about that.
