Do you really believe that we're close to the government outlawing guns and going door to door to collect them? Or some other measure that would achieve the same thing? I mean really? It blows my mind that some of you really believe this stuff.
I don't believe we are close at the moment, to door to door confiscation. However most gun rights enthusiasts are taking the long view and using observations of what happened to gun owners in UK and Australia to form their opinions. It is the creeping approach that people are guarding against, and with good reason IMO based on history.
What you should remember is that many gun enthusiasts hold the ability to own guns as sacred, and have always known that there are elements in society who want to eliminate that ownership. Think of something that you hold dear, and now imagine that during your entire life some people in this country wanted to take that thing away from you. Would you agree to small steps the curtail that something knowing that it could eventually be used to take it away from you?
