    I didn't write this, this is from a survival forum, but it is basically the same thing I have been warning you about for the last year.

    From a survival forum...

    Right now we have only 2 1/2 years 3 years at best before a massive clampdown on gun rights will start kicking in.

    My theory.

    #1 Trump will not get re-elected and by 2020 those who voted for him will not be better off and America will continue its slide towards irrelevance as a third rate country. A Democratic president will win the election along with anti-gun congress taking seats over time.

    #2 Mass shootings will continue with increasing regularity as the next generation of children who grew up with permissive/lazy parents who used psychotropic drugs as a way of keeping them in control continue their rampage on society.

    #3 Society sick and tired of monthly school shootings and other mass shootings are now foaming at the mouth for some sort of relief, thanks to continual 24/7 media coverage and inept parents letting their halfwit psychopath children access to weapons.

    So most likely by mid 2013 (must be typo, 2023) you will see some massive clampdown on gunrights. Here is what I expect to see.

    #1 Severe restrictions on any "Assault weapons as the media calls them" ie: AR-15 etc.. I would say all out ban on them, similar to the 1986 Machine Gun. In addition existing grandfathered weapons would now fall under similar NFA/ATF restrictions.

    #2 Severe restrictions on any semiautomatic handgun with similar restrictions as #1
    Bolt action weapons/shotguns and non semiautomatic hand guns (ie revolvers etc..) would still be legal but fall under additional restrictions.

    The chances of this happening is much greater than ever due to several factors coming together. Social media echo chamber along with a new generation of voting millennials fresh from socialist minded universities coming in great force to elect away their rights to bear arms.

    They already are terrified of free speech and require safe spaces to avoid trigger words that could send them into a panic attack, removal of the right to bear arms will come naturally to them.

    <><><><>
    The gun owning patriots had better develop a new plan, for I think it will be much worse than what is foretold here. We can see from the recent shooting in TX that an assault weapons ban wont cut it for the conservaphobes. Killings will keep on happening no matter what the type of firearm, so the conservaphobes wont be happy until all guns are confiscated.

    ...and even then the killings wont stop since there are 300 million guns in America and they can't all be confiscated.

    I didn't put a link in here as I don't like that forum and they don't like me. If you want to view the original thread, Google:

    Even if Trump is voted out, there is one key to our keeping our gun rights: Judges. And Trump has been doing a great job of filling federal courts with conservative justices. As I've said a number of times here, we will not lose our guns because the 2nd Amendment is repealed. We will lose our guns through the judicial process. If enough liberal justices infest our courts, they will simply say the 2A is not an individual right.

    Guns are illegal in Mexico so you know gun control works.

    That's how having McConnell and Ryan hurts us in the long run. They should be passing bills to make his executive orders permanent.

    No disrespect but some folks are staring way too far off into the future. I don't think Dems will take back either House this November anyway. Now that is of course Reps don't put idiot candidates up like they did in 2012 (i.e. Todd Akin, Murdock, etc.) I'm not the most intellectual, polticial person in the world, but I think I'm pretty good judge of trends.

    Then they could pass a bill that makes Judicial decisions invalid and we could do away with this silly democracy thing.

    Heroin is illegal and yet kills more annually than guns.

    This said the writer's scope is too narrow. 5 years out the national debt will be self sustaining. Between it, the hundreds of trillions in unfunded liabilities, the ever increasing crushing social programs, etc. the Fed will eventually fail financially. Any freshman high school student, if they bother to pay attention, can see this.

    Guns at this point could see an attempted confiscation to control tens of millions looking for their social security which by social security's own website says will be exhausted by 2037....right in time for me to start drawing.

    All these us vs. them arguments are just noise as politicans entrench themselves.

    I own guns and won't allow them to be taken....but those looking long term better have more concerns than that.

    Nonsense. We could easily sail through most elections. The Democrats kick our buts at organization, voter registration drives and getting people to the polls to vote. Those are all things we can do if we want to. Even when we don’t do those things, many elections are still close. We’re we to copy their playbook, we’d absolutely destroy them on Election Day.

    Dims had control of all three just a few years ago and couldn't pass anything.
