Sorry Roys, but chances are you will pass away at home in your bed with your side arm at hand if you want it then.

I sure will want mine..... probably the Kimber CDP pro II .45

The rest my wife will decide on which she wants, offer the rest to my son and my grandson, and sell any no one wants.

I sort of hope my grandson will want my lefty cast off .40 cal flintlock kentucky long rifle

Currently that gun is worth around 1,600 bucks

They'll just twist and mutilate the words of the constitution.

Obamacare was unconstitutional, so they just changed the word tax to fee or something like that IIRC.

Same will go for the second amendment. You'll still have the right to bear arms, but bullets will be prohibited, arms will be limited to guns made in 1789 or whenever the BoR was passed, or something like that.

Dianne Feinstein Confesses to Wanting Outright Ban Of All Guns
What are Ms. Feinstein's plans for the people who reply, "Thank you, Ms. Feinstein, but no thank you. I'll keep my guns, thanks."

There will be thousands of such replies, of course, if not millions. Remember that there are almost as many legally-owned guns in this country, as there are American citizens. If only one percent of gun owners refuse to comply, that's more than a million people.

Does she have police ready to arrest those thousands (or millions) of American citizens? Does she have the SWAT teams ready to break down their doors, storm inside, and ransack each of the thousands (or millions) of houses to make sure she's got all the guns they might have?

What, exactly, ARE her plans?

I have wondered about this recently. After all Dianne Feinstein is clearly a bright girl. She is rules committe chair, normally a post reserved for the smartest cookies. Is she really dumb enough to think that banning bayonet lugs is going to make a difference? I doubt it.

Note that her new proposal would require fingerprinting and registration for all owners of so-called "assault weapons." It would require a massive new bureacracy. New bureaucracy, lotsa jobs for friends, supporters, and heirophants. And a finger in the eye of conservative/individualist gun-rights supporters. I suspect this is really what underlies Feinstein's proposal.

Me freaking too, no one is taking our guns, we have had forever.

With having two family members murdered in the privacy of their own home, come try and take my guns, i know how to shoot, and will shoot, if it means for the protection of myself or family or my home.

Are they going to take guns away from the Mafiaso, Gang Bangers, Criminals, Burglars, Rapists, Murderers, yeah like hell they will.


Feinstein and the rest of the Dweeks need to freaking leave Calif for good. Adios!
