    I read what is happening in IL and NY is trying to do the same thing in terms of "confiscating" whatever firearms they want.

    I am trying to understand what gives govt the right to take private property that you legally purchased and all of sudden they can just say it is not illegal and we are taking it away!

    What would prevent them from doing this with cars, or books or iPods or whatever the whim of some politician believe he no longer wants people to have.

    Are there no limits....I am confused because if they can just grab anything do we really not own anything we just hold onto something until the govt wants it for themselves?

    IMNSHO, I see it as a complete and total violation of this:

    You will give them to them voluntarily. In the exact same way you give them a portion of your pay check voluntarily. Do you not think money is private property?

    Anything reclassified illegal becomes contraband and is subject to immediate forfeiture. Been that way with full-auto, and certain drugs for years.

    Because they make the laws, that's how. Who's going to stop them? The Feds? How's that statewide marijuana legalization going? Unhindered last I checked.

    A good friend owns a liquor store and the cops are confiscating his kegs whenever they bust teenager's parties. HH

    After the "State" takes your guns away, they will still have theirs. That's how.

    It's already been done. Executive Order 6102 issued by FDR allowed the police state to confiscate gold.

    Do they have the right? NO. But they are willing to use force and deadly force against you, your dog, your wife and your kids to force their will.

    How can the state confiscate private property?

    Only by FORCE.
