    This is not a TEOTWAWKI thread, just a valid question.

    If the powers-that-be ended up getting ALL the gun grabbing laws passed they can dream up, do you think they would go after antique guns? I ask not because of blackpowder, but because I was fortunate enough to buy a Finnish M39 "Mosin" rifle that is not only an antique from 1896, but a centerfire rifle as well. It's not my favorite gun, but it makes me wonder if I should stock up on 7.62×54R ammo.

    If the anti-gunners had their way they would take all guns, every one.

    If more restrictive gun laws get passed then it is doubtful that they would allow ownership without permit. Period. Based upon what is seen in other parts of the world, rifles would be limited based upon their ability to do harm at longer range. Handguns would be limited based upon their ability to be concealed. Shotguns are among the safest guns to own if additional restriction is a concern, and among shotguns a manual action is favorable to a semiauto. Similarly, guns without magazine are favorable over magazine fed guns, and the smaller number of barrels would be favorable to larger numbers of barrels. Some European laws have brought into existence the triple barreled shotgun for these reasons, but I would think a classic “antique” double barrel to be relatively safe from the “gun grabbers” should legislation ever get to that point. Thankfully I don’t suspect that we will see such laws anytime soon in the USA, but this world changes quickly and nobody knows what is in store for us tomorrow.

    In my opinion, a true "Man of Arms" should be capable of being effectively armed with anything from a ball & cap revolver on forward.

    No way you'd get to keep those and most especially once conversions become known to the grabadges.

    Keep in mind they arent really concerned about weapons that are dangerous to you, criminals, your neighbors, or the children!!!!!

    They are concerned about whatever it dangerous to THE STATE.

    When I take my Hawken or musket to the range I’ve seen some of the tacticool guys with their ARs howl in laughter.

    With AR ammo hovering at a buck a shot, who’s laughing now?

    My black powders are just as cheap as they’ve always been with no ammo shortage affecting them.

    Do you believe for a moment these fools actually understand anything at all about guns or the shooting sports? From what I have seen the word gun is all inclusive. Think about it and read the quotes by most of them. They are not quite a bright lot when it comes to guns.

    If you're not concerned about what's ahead you must be living in a cave.

    They're coming for every last one. I truly believe the days of firearm ownership as we have known are almost over forever.

    Fearmongering? A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

    Pass on if you think there is nothing to see here.

    After they get "just the ARs", it will be "just the semi-automatics". After that, there will be this huge media push, comparing standard scoped hunting rifles to "high powered sniper rifles". Once they get to SA pistols, and antiques, they'll figure out some way to spin owners of these firearms as somehow freakish, Gun rights are like a cake, they keep carving huge slices off of and never putting anything back.
    They won't be happy, till BB guns and water pistols are illegal.

    Like pairof44sp said, take a noob shooting. Haven't seen a lib argument yet, which can compare to a good day at the range.

    This. This right here. The fact that people, especially gun owners, still believe this. This is why gun control will succeed.

    Why not go after everything? Some types of pellet rifles are illegal in certain states.
