    FTF sales leave little or no record. If you have the cash, why wait any longer?
    The line of people at the local, typically small show today reportedly was a quarter mile long.

    Deals are made all the time in quiet corners of Wal Mart, Kroger parking lots...or behind McDonalds.
    The popularity of this method might be growing by the hour.

    This broke A** Country and this Broke A** state can't afford to buy my guns back.
    Besides, they didn't sell them to me anyway, so how could they buy them back?

    yup. once you show up with them, and say you don't like the price they offer. Do you think they will let you turn around an leave? Nope.

    Bring your own food. I'll share ammo, but not food. :)

    In all seriousness, though, I have a collection which (before the "run" started) was worth in excess of 125K.

    I'm not turning them in.

    No force on Earth would compel me to do so willingly.

    I'm offering a slightly used HK USPc in stainless for a government buy back. They can have it. For $700.

    I could never imagine it getting to the point where you have to load up all your guns & drive to some police station or headquarters & hand in your guns,in a line with others doing the same thing.If that happens,the next thing you might see are buildings going up with the words "Arbeit Macht Frei" on them.

    Were the call to disarm to come, I would be worried for our nation.

    However, were my family threatened directly, I would disarm voluntarily.

    One thing that does concern me was that the firearms I had registered with Fort Bliss are still logged to me, despite my ETS. When I asked, I was told that they would be tracked to me perpetually by the Provost Marshal's office and could not be deleted. Worrisome, but out of my hands.

    "Nuts" would be my response.

    Seriously? If anyone threatens my family with lethal force, the next thing I'm going to see is a sight picture and muzzle flash.

    No one threatens my family, under the color of ANY flag.

    ^This.

    The main reason I'm a gun-owner is to keep them safe.

    Let's be real folks. A government buyback program would likely offer no more than $50 per firearm turned in. That is the typical amount offered in cities where buybacks have taken place. Like many others, there is no way that I would turn over any of my firearms - if the "authorities" decide to come look for them they had better have a warrant and be prepared for a legal battle all the way to the supreme court. This entire situation is a trumped up BS plan for the biggest gun grab in history.

    I'm a fan of the "independent buy-back" (sic) in which honest purchasers (you know, without taxpayer-stolen funds) offer more to the folks waiting in line. Unfortunately, the jackboots won't tolerate that for long.

    Boys boys boys,

    Feinstein has ALWAYS been about banning all guns. She has never tried to hide it. This doesn't mean she is any closer to it than before.

    The call is here and I'm worried people won't hear it.

    So does anyone actually think this could happen?

    Anything COULD happen. I'm putting it pretty far down the list.

    I'm just a lad, but I've purchased a couple rifles in my time. I know that every time I've bought a rifle I fill out a background check form. Is this the only record Uncle Sam has that I purchased a weapon? Is there any way for the feds to say "Oh, it looks like so and so has three weapons purchased under his name" and then show up at my door knocking?

    If they do (which I feel that is unlikely given the state of the economy) and I say "No, sold them all" or give them some other response, do they have any right to search my home to see if I'm lying or not?

    ^^

    You have heard the numerous GOP senators/congressman/women who are coming out these days in support of a AWB? right?

    when Hutchinson from TX and Warner from VA support a Feinstein proposal... you are in trouble...

    it'll pass... unfortunately...

    No, you aren't. Pick that piece of the sky up and put it back from where you think it fell.

    Them faking you out is just as big a part of the game as anything else. Keep your feces conglomerated and don't panic.

    Even if a federal law passed for confiscation, it would be up to the local governments to do the actual confiscation. I can tell you right now, here in South Carolina the locals would not do it.

    Secondly, if confiscation passed in the federal government, then you run into a state's rights issue. Many states in the South and West have it specifically written in their state constitutions that firearms are a PERSONAL right, not a militia right.

    Confiscation could literally split the country, and I don't think the yahoos in Washington are going to risk that.

    Reminds me of stories that I've read about tax collectors in China disappearing when they've gone into rural areas to try to collect from peasants who are use to doing their own thing.
