OK personally, I think TSHTF before American politicians ever get around to an outright ban on guns. However, just for conversation's sake, let's suppose that sometime, in the future, it could be tomorrow, it could be 200 years from now, guns will be banned in America. Suppose you're kidnapped by the leaders of the NWO and put into a room with no windows and you are forced to make a decision. The interrogators say to you, "We are going to ban guns in the USA. When should the ban take effect? You can choose a date as early as next week, or choose a date 200 years in the future. We've already decided to ban guns, now it's up to [b]you[/b] to decide when the ban will take effect." Obviously, this question is purely hypothetical. When would you choose to ban guns? By the way, you're not allowed to tell them to piss off. You [b]must[/b] choose a date. And don't give me any tinfoil-hat comments, as I said this is purely hypothetical. For all I know there is no NWO conspiracy. -Nick Viejo.

Easy. April 15, 2004. If you aren't already po'ed at the .gov, you will likely be on this day.

if it had to be in my lifetime, i'd choose right now if not, then i'd have to go with the year 239843028741023409182304980981023984019238049­8102938401293840980129834098 X 10^21340981029384013298410293840192834

OK OK OK. We can all say a date way in the future, like "The Same day the sun runs out of fuel," but let's stick with a 200-year limit.

In my continuing efforts at helping out people, I would give the UN this advice: Manufacture a "terrorist event" of such magnitude that the american sheeple would beg for the government to take away their freedoms and guns in exchange for safety. Then intiate a rewards based program encouraging the sheeple to turn in those who refuse to comply. For a modest stipend, I would gladly offer my services as a consultant to the UN for this project. Please remember my assistance the next time baseless and hateful accusations are leveled against me.

With a 200 yr limit, make it 200yrs from now... 2 centuries is a long time... First, in 200yrs guns may be as obselete as a sword & shield is today... Second, any 'powers' that exist today will likely be long-gone then... So they have 200yrs to try and stay relevant AND 200yrs for us to invent new weapons (Something that Americans are quite good at. We invented the submarine, revolver (IIRC), chain guns (Gatling, Civil war, big thing with a crank on the side), the airplane, etc...) that they haven't been able to decide to ban yet...

For one they wouldn't be able to kidnap me I carry 24/7. I kill them or they kill me trying to kill them. They won't be able to ban guns to many of us with guns. Can you say outnumbered. And like they will use military force on us("We The People"). But if your dream happened I would be ready now that I hit forty.

Well since I plan to be buried in my gun safe, let's wait about 60 years. Then they can pry them from... You get the idea.

Pardon my ignorance. What is the significance of this date other that being the day Federal income tax is due?
