Confiscation will not be done, en mass, with armored police raids. It will be done this way, over a generation or two, as registration requirements are tightened and reasons to own guns restricted. Little by little, a bit at a time, until gun owners are few and politically weak.

This process has been ongoing in New York for over a century. That is why there are so few gun owners in New York City now, because we let the Sullivan act fester there, unchecked, for a century.

It is a national scandal that such a major infringement as the Sullivan act, put into law to protect organized crime, was allowed to infringe on New Yorkers Constitutional rights for all this time.

The alternative was the police killing him and his wife. Maybe his kid(s) too. It’s all about saving the children.

I'm thinking maybe he could have placed them in custody with his attorney, at least. Contest the law.

I do agree that there will be no mass confiscation, gun owners will get picked off one at a time till critical mass is achieved.

Wait & see what happens when ObamaCare allows the Federales to dig through every (Republican’s) medical record. And that is exactly what they are planning.

I may be paranoid, but I am damn sure not stupid.

That’s my analysis as well. It’s happened/is happening in MA in precisely the same way.

Nowadays you’re half a kook if you keep a hunting rifle, never mind carry.

Tyrant Kim Un Hussein must be very pleased that his efforts to “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” are progressing so easily.

No, he gave them up.

*******************

These are the test cases... IMO...
... LEO agencies and bureaucrats experimenting and proving their tactics for passive surrender of legally owned firearms...

Hasn't this fancy-pants New York lawyer heard of an emergency injunction,
....or temporary restraining order in lieu of a hearing/ adjudication.

Never surrender your stuff without due process....
...if they mount-up a raid team in the name of this bogus reason for confiscation--
--WELLLL--
There you have a stupid-endous tremendous example of overreach with clear violation of constitutional rights, particularly 2nd, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendment rights.

Just say'n...

It will be done at the local level and the media will say nary a word about it. No one will know who else or where else it's happening IN ADVANCE OR DURING, with no way to protest against it en masse. Only after the fact will these instances become known, and limited to sites such as here but not Facebunk or major media.

No. Gangsters help get out the vote for representatives of the Democratic [sic] party, plus all the cops and politicians they pay off are affiliated with the same organization.

There is more going on here than just gun confiscation.

Back in the days of the USSR, the Communists used mental hospitals to jail people fpr political reasons.

We are seeing a broad based effort on the part of the US Government to use vague and totally subjective mental health criteria as a pretext to control people.

The Obama Administration is pulling this directly out of the Stalin/Lenin playbook.

A perfect example is using “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” as a pretext to confiscate firearms from military veterans and to prevent vets from having guns in their possession.

I’ll leave to peoples imaginations as to why the Obama Administration is so focused on preventing trained US military combat vets from having success to firearms.

“because they somehow accessed his medical records”

So, what did you think the Obamacare databases were really going to be used for?

Same thing in 1994 Staten Island after the Feinstein Federal gun ban, NYC used licenses to round up those guns.
