Permit me to take this to the next level. One world government is coming, eventually, whether you believe it or not. A free people with access to firearms will not be permitted by a one world ruler. Cry and moan all you want, bluster if you must but eventually Americans will be disarmed.

I don't like it, I don't want it and I hope I am not alive when it happens...but it's GOING to happen. Head in sand mode and tough talk will not stop it !

After reading the posted question, I reflect back to my family linage in America who fought the wars on this land since the Tuscarora War was fought in North Carolina from September 22, 1711 until February 11, 1715 between the Tuscarora people and their allies on one side and European American settlers. I believe it is the very essence of freedom you speak of by giving in to these so called leftist. The real subject is not guns, but the beginning of the end of YOUR freedom you are about to hand in. My family fought here and died here and I myself will be willing to do the same.

Keep your powder dry boys, the fun has just begun.

Let's come back to this in a couple of years and re-evaluate. For right now, I feel completely safe selling high and buying low.

BTW, if you want an AR for $2K, feel free to message me :)
I'm good. I actually just bought a Sig 556 on Gun Broker, but thanks for the offer.

OK, back to the question at hand.

Will I sell my AR? Yes. Right now. For probably three to four times what I paid for it. I'll sell everything in my cabinet that doesn't have a Walther stamp on it if I can get that same rate of ROI.

Why? Nothing is going to change. People have been saying for decades that they were going to abolish/restrict/outlaw (fill in the blank), and no one has yet to do it. So, would I take advantage of the current buzz that they're going to "take away our guns" to sell at an obscene profit? Absolutely. Then I'll buy another $500 AR in a year or two and not think twice.

In retrospect, I wish I had done that when Obama took office and there was a big spike in prices, but I was too slow. Not missing out on that this time around.
Kinda like what I have done with ammo. I bought tons of it a year ago before prices went skyrocketing. Now sell it for 10x the price. If I sell out and can't get any more then I won't have to worry about what I am going to do with all this worthless stuff when no one can have a gun to use it in. Psst I am kidding I woul never sell it all, likewise I will never give up all my guns. Boating accidents happen.

Wasn’t this country founded on principle by way of rebellion? I get a good chunk of us are gainfully employed family men and women, who wouldn’t dare take risks in the face of a de facto socialist gun policy.

I posed the same question on a California gun forum I’m on, so I’ll ask you folks here who more than likely live in FREE AMERICA:

If our founding fathers and the men who preceded us, who MORE than likely lived humbly with an honest family life, gave their all for the sake of principle and freedom....what the hell is stopping us now should the modern day redcoat strip you of everything that makes you American? Is it that cushy 9-5 job or stable income? That badass car you drive? A family waiting for you at home?

Because if we continue to be complacent with these bozos who will come after your guns, what makes you think you’ll be whole after the ordeal? What reasonable person believes that is all they want?

We’re not a group that prays for violence, but if they are to tarnish my name for their own brevity, I don’t plan on going down without fighting.

There are more guns than people in this country. That is going to take a whole lot of 3am flash bang raids.

Yes some will forcefully resist, most will rollover. I have read that only 3% of the population fought against the British (I believe that is the number I recall, please correct me if I’m wrong).

Did you see photos of those gun owners in Connecticut standing in line to register their “assault rifles”?
Did you listen to Beto O’Rorke’s response when questioned along these same lines? Paraphrasing, it went something like this, We are a nation of laws and when laws are passed most Americans will obey the law. As much as I wish that he was wrong, I would say he is probably right.

Once several examples are made of those who resist, the moral of many will collapse and they will comply. You can bet on it. Maybe you’ll be one of them, maybe you won’t, time will tell...

Tough talking is easy until the blood flows. Personally I honestly don’t know what I’d do and I hope I never have to find out.

What was the compliance rate in Connecticut? I believe it was insanely low.

You are counting on being able to purchase one again at some point. That may get more difficult.

There has been a growing resistance against anything determined to be an "Assault Weapon", and the pressure to restrict them grows exponentially every time they are used in a crime (which we know isn't that often).

I don't think there ever has been more promises made to the American public to restrict or confiscate them than there was during this election. Biden and Harris have both made it clear what they want to do. Can it be stopped? Some of it, but there are backdoor ways that they can get some things done. They will certainly try. They will go after ammo, distribution, sales, new technicalities - whatever they can reach.

Hopefully you will be able to re-purchase that AR again at rock-bottom prices when things settle down.

I'm not as confident - but I hope I'm wrong.

If this can happen in Texas -

Record Number of Anti-2A Legislation Introduced on 1st Day of Bill Pre-Filing for 2021 Texas Legislative Session



We'll see how they deal with it.

Please quote both of my sentences in their entirety should you ever quote me again, perhaps you didn’t read the whole post, If that’s the case, this is what I wrote.

“Are you ready to shoot a police officer? I’m not!”

I hope that clarifies that for you and anyone else who may have misunderstood or quit reading too soon.

Here is the bigger problem. It seems like the NRA is in such financial straights that they are no longer able to fight the anti-gun people on all fronts. Sure the SCOTUS may declare any laws that outlaw guns unconstitutional, but it takes money to finance that fight. NRA leadership has been accused of dipping into the funds. Even though they haven't been able to prove anything it is depleting their resources fighting the accusations in court. We as gun owners need to step up to save the organization or be prepared to fight the government on our own. I have been a Life member of NRA for 40 years I won't let it die. Will you?

Just a reminder. Depending on the state you reside in gun shows offer a great opportunity to buy/sell firearms without federal or even state notification. That's probably where my AR's will go and that's my story! Just an example in AZ.....multiple gun shows and no reporting requirements.....just need to be 18+ with no convictions.

This was posted in another thread.

Recently, I decided to take all my firearms and ammo and go visit my brother in Guam. I loaded all my firearms/ammo onto my 65' sailboat and headed west. About 85 miles from Guam, the boat sprung a leak.....I did a quick star sighting and plotted the results.....the boat sank at 11° 21' 24.19" N, 142° 34' 19.00" E. My navigation chart showed the depth to be 35,374 ft. I had to do a little dog paddling for a couple of days before I was picked up by a Japanese trawler. So, I made it, but all my firearms/magazines/ammo are at the bottom of the ocean under 35,374 feet of water.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

If there ever comes a time, I'd rather give them away to a local patriot organization before being forced to comply with an illegally mandated government buy-back program.
