Why can't people realize that when guns get limited or banned, it won't be a instant fix, and instead, will be a long term issue to keep on top of. Sure, many people will still have guns at the beginning. But give it a few years, and as the law gets more of those guns taken away, the amount of them available will drop. Soon, there will be so little guns, that if someone did want one, it would be too expensive for anyone but those with a ton of money. It wouldn't be available to basically 80% of the population.
Sure, it wont be instant, but people don't or can't seem to think about long term. Long term, gun bans would gradually eliminate most guns around. And as those with the guns get caught or taken away, the supply will just keep dwindling. It's called thinking ahead.

I have one NRA family member and he is absolutely nuts about guns. He's a die hard creationist republican who buys gins like groceries. He has a 5 by 5 foot pile of ammo all loaded into high cap mags for any from from his glock to his 408 Chey tak. He has survival kits in his house and has one for all his kids because he's convinced the government is going to declare martial law to take away his guns. This is your average fringe gun owner and their scary as can be. The worst part is he holds a FFL and can buy guns normally restricted to civilians and he doesn't keep them in a gun safe. Guns and ammo litter his house and his kids have access. He also never locks his door.

I have over 10,000 rounds of ammo and i'd buy guns like groceries if I had the money but don't confuse a hobby with someone that wants to shoot up a school. I mean really, does it make a difference how many guns someone has? So because I have more than one gun that makes me suspicious? I am no different than a computer nerd the only difference is a computer nerd uses computers, fiddles with them and buys the latest tech, same with me except I fiddle with guns (in a safe manner) and buy guns.

Oh yeah I remember you think people are crazy for having a hobby that involves guns now. Never mind, continue to be paranoid, over and out.

And you are just as insane as my family member. I have had to explain to his kids in private many times the government isn't going to come take them in the night from him and that Obama getting another term doesn't mean they wont live long enough to get to highschool.

So everyone knows, I am a conceal carry holder and practice regularly. I have even had to pull my concealed weapon before. I carry everywhere and own enough ammo when not out practicing for 2 mags. I support practical gun control and find myself a sane gun owner.

Sid i'm probably more sane than a lot of people on this forum. Just because I own guns doesn't mean squat. I promise you that you wont hear about me shooting up any schools or any other public places. I'm not insane as you think I am. I think you are a scared little man, I even doubt you'd use your gun if you had to. You are probably one of those gun owners that say I have a gun, that's enough, I'll just throw it in the back of the closet and be done with it.

No but if a federal officer showed up with questions about your unusual stockpile i can see you flipping and shooting him. Remember the ocklohoma city bombing was a conservative terrorist.

No, I wouldn't be shooting them i'd be getting ready to call my lawyer because last time I checked I wasn't doing anything usual or illegal. But apparently to you l'm an extremist now because I enjoy the shooting sports?

technically you are scared, you are the one not sure of your ability and subsidize that ability that with a gun.

Even the manufactures know it:

I bet you that their also all not locked securely in safes with ammo in desperate safes. You might fire back i need them accessible for self defense. I say the only one that should be outside a safe when not in use is your primary carry weapon.

Its not like I can go to a super market and purchase an Assault Rifle.. This is exactly why we shouldnt ban guns. People still have access to them no matter where!. It wouldnt solve any of these killings of those using Assault Rifles.

i see people speed all day long on the highway too, this is why we shouldn't have speed limits.

There is nothing I can say to convince you that that i'm not a conspiracy theorist with a tin foil hat on so I might as well not even waste my time with you. After all to you someone that collects and shoots guns has a hobby is an extremist and the feds should be knocking down the doors of people like me for having an "unusual stockpile". Between the two of us, I think you need to get a grip.
