If an "assault weapon" bill passes on a federal level, there will be millions of felons for them to round up. I'm still waiting for the big earthquake...

I have to wonder, why would a recently convicted felon not be in the custody of the state? I mean, didn't they confiscate any firearms the felon had when they admitted him/her to the hotel graybar? Or does this mean that All firearms at the home of a felon, though not necessarily in the direct possession of the felon, are being confiscated by the state?

So, let's say Poppadrinksalot gets his third DUI (or whichever takes it up to the felony level) conviction in court and is whisked off to the jail until time to transfer him to a prison. The felon would be separated from the firearms by fences and guards; why exactly would the firearms still need to be confiscated?

Alternatively, are they confiscating ALL firearms from the homes of newly RELEASED felons? What about the wife of Mr. newly released felon? Can't she have a private gunsafe to keep the felon off HER firearms? I could've sworn i'd seen that discussed as satisfactory many times.

Law enforcement won both of those. I am merely stating a fact, not a political opinion.

Ruby Ridge cost the govt a lot of $ and it, along with Waco cost them an unmeasurable amount trust which now is gaining exponentially.

I believe the settlements were around $1,000,000 give or take. Admission of guilt.

How many of these people 'labeled' as felons are truly dangerous??? So those of us who protest these violations of our rights just need to be labeled as felons by 'our' government and then they can 'legally' disarm us, right??
It won't be long and the government will come after your guns if you are convicted of DUI just as they now do for DV!
Where will it end? Study history and you will find the answer!!!

I still don't understand how this is necessary.

Gun confiscation could not happen if the people refused to register their guns. But it is commiefornia where even the criminals register their firearms

True. Enough of a majority there have managed to get a ton of repressive gun laws on the books. God knows what the fine print allows them to do. My advice: fight or GTFO.

We already have universal background checks and handgun registration. Gun owners are such a small minority here that I feel it's pointless to fight so I'm in the group of people trying to GTFO.
