Ex post facto laws are illegal. What you legally possess nowadays cannot (legally) be legislated out of existance or additionally "restricted". That being said, DO NOT REGISTER OR RE-REGISTER YOUR GUNS. REGISTRATION ALWAYS LEADS TO CONFISCATION. Canada tried a "re-registration" scheme but was unsuccessful, despite threats of fines and imprisonment. To thir credit, Canadian citizens successfully fought back their "re-registration" scheme by utilizing massive "civil disobedience".

Really? Then why has the NRA given its blessings to all those states and imdividuals who have happily registered themselves -and in many cases their weapons- to obtain a CCW?

You make a valid point. I have a CCW. I carry a de facto registered weapon. If they ever come for my guns, they are entitled to all they can find. As a law-abiding citizen, i have no wish to shoot it out with the BATF. You don't kill a snake by shooting it in the tail.

Look for the grandfather clause to be aborted soon.

Can they say you cannot will your guns to your descendants (or others)? Since they woudln't have registered them?

I hear that CA and other states (possibly DiFi's bill) are looking to "confiscate within a generation" by keeping one from passing along guns to descendants.

If you break the law and do not register your weapon you become a criminal and therefore immune to the registration requirement since that would be a violation of your right against self incrimination. The courts have so ruled. Don't remember the case number, perhaps another reader does?

The inability to sell or will your "property" constitutes a "taking"

Following NRA spokesman Wayne LaPierre's call for placing trained armed guards in each of the nation's public schools, gun control advocates went on the attack and refused to give the idea any meaningful consideration. We thought it might help to review the timeline of the shootings on 14 December 2012 to see if it might be a good idea.
