That is a reason why I own several AR-15's because I'm afraid of Big Government. Governments like to diasarm the People before they enslave them. Big Government totalitarian regimes have mass murdered, raped, tortured 175,000,000 people throughout history...look it up. Chairman Mao, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, King George III (attempted to disarm American colonists), and many others... The greatest mass murderer and killer is Big Government : ( This is why I fear Big Government.
A government that is Big enough to take care of all your need (example: Soviet Union) is Big enough to take everything away from you.

And what will you do with your guns when they come to take everything away from you? Shoot the government agents? Do you think that will help, or will you just be #175,000,001? Then again, your guns might get you killed before they arrive.
Ray and YBFITW will cheer will the Government agents go door to door conficateing guns. The cheers will be muted when they come back for the IRA,s. I hope we will still have a internet so i can hear them rant and whine.
If the US government becomes totalitarian like Soviet Russia and I hear that they are sending armed government agents (unconstitutionally and without search warrants) riding in armored personnel carriers to get our guns. I will simply do what the farmers in Australia and the UK did when they were told to hand over their guns...
They bought waterproof plastic containers and wide PVC pipes and filled them with motor oil, then sealed them waterproof, and buried them deep, deep underground. Once the government had picked up everyone's guns up and left, they simply unburied them.
I value my life and my family's, that is why if "they" show up. I will consistently deny that I have them and I will claim that I sold them at a gun show or something like that. If I'm tortured, raped, or imprisoned, or they send me in a sealed boxcar by train with other fellow Americans to a concentration camp or gulag in far off Alaska by the Blue Shirts, so be it. I will not give them my guns. If they ask me about my guns. I will say, what are you talking about? What guns? I sold them long ago at a gun show because I needed the money, or something like that.

The world is full of paranoid schizophrenics who should be institutionalized. Ted Nugent is one of them. And, from what I've read here on this thread, there are a few here that are in that same boat. Rand Paul is just an extremist. An idiot extremist at that.
Keep drinking the cool-aid. The progressives, aka anti-constitutionists, have you right where they want you. The Tea Party types have been villified for what? Strict interpretion of the Constitution. If you want to live under the "moving target" syndrome, then please do it in another environment.
I am a conservative in most respects. I own a handgun and a shotgun and I live in NY.
I do not believe a civilian should own grenades, bazookas or assault rifles. (somebody else said that here) But it is about drawing the line between CIVILIAN and MILITARY
I think if you wanted to shoot one as a hobbyist, you should be able to go to a specialized range and rent one. But you cannot have one in your house. You are certainly not hunting with it, and if there is a situation so severe that you needed a military grade weapon to defend your house then you would need an Army, not a gun.
Just my input.
