If that dreadful day ever comes that Big brother decides he wants all of our firearms , Would you give them up ? I know there are some who ONLY have one firearm for protection and are not really fanatics like others with large or high end collections . Then you have some who would follow the rules and comply whether they have one or 100 to avoid prosecution . Say the penalty for not complying would be 5 years in jail and or 10,000.00 dollar fine . Would you then give them up ? Or would you stand by your right , go to jail and still lose your weapons ? I'd like to think that my response would be '' Oh they were stolen last night '' line. For me , I only have a dozen or so out of 40+ that were purchased though a retail shop . What if the penalty for owning it were just as bad as not turning it in ? What if you faced extreme prosecution for using it in self defense ? If it came down to it , would you rather be a convicted felon or a un-armed subject Or give them up one bullet at a time ? I also think maybe to buy a few el cheapos to give it up and claim private sell on the rest ?
