In the rush to control guns in this country, has anyone in or out of government given any thought to another cache of guns stashed throughout the country? These are firearms brought home by military vets, particularly from WW 1 & 2, and Korea. Some are U.S. government issue. Some are foreign-made liberated by our troops and brought home for souvenirs. All military issue, if maintained, those guns are still usable. My grandfathers both brought home such souvenirs. Unregistered, untraceable, they are still out there. Just thinking.

There are millions of guns in this country that were purchased before paperwork was required, and millions more before serial numbers were required.

I don't have much use for a rocket launcher [at this time] but I wouldn't mind having a slave at the moment.

If you look at the Founders' quotes, you see the reason for owning guns was not even remotely about personal protection or hunting. Guns were for protection of rights from an overreaching government.

I guess that means Founders' thought our guns were for avoiding governments like we have now.

In a recent gun buy back in Conn a lady brought in a rare,very valuable(est at $40K)German Sturmgewehr 44 that was issued to SS officers only.That kinda stuff is out there but I figure they think the #'s are so small that they arent worth worrying about.Besides it's hard to regulate/confiscate something you dont know about.I have and have had some of the WWII era long guns and I enjoy shooting them but,with some exception,they cant hold a light to modern firearms so to me they arent much of a threat.

My feeling is that if the guns are operable, they are potentially as lethal as an Ar-15. The numbers of those firearms out there are incalculable, just as another poster stated about U.S. guns sold pre-paperwork and pre-serial number. To my knowledge the situation has not been addressed in the rush to background checks and banning assault rifles.

They also forgot to include a clause that would exclude ex police/mil from the proposed ban.They were in such a hurry to make some kind of presidence they made themselves look kinda dumb.
