If the day ever comes that our government starts to confiscate firearms than you know our movement into totalitarianism is nearly complete.
That step has been crucial for many different authoritarian governments. Disarm the citizens.
Now we already have legislation in effect that attack our rights.
The Patriot Act violates privacy rights.
NDAA violates many rights of habaes corpus. This past version of NDAA has allowed the use of propaganda to be used on Americans. Search The Smith-Mundt Act to get details on it.
Our slow decent into totalitarianism is progressing. Remember...in an authoritarian government...there always has to be a threat, and these new measures are for our own "safety."
Never forget...freedom is not safe and never was intended to be safe.
