    If licensed to carry, will the Feds come get my gun?

    As I've been talking with folk about getting a Concealed Handgun License (as it is called in Texas), I'm being asked questions like this --

    If I have a CHL, the Feds will know I have a gun and come first to my house to confiscate it and put me in jail. If I don't have a CHL, I'll not be their target. What should I do?

    So how are you answering such questions? I want some good responses to convince my friends of the benefits of carrying their guns concealed away from their homes to protect themselves and their loved ones and others.

    Thanks for your help, Bersa Chat members.

    Better to have a permit and carry, than not have one and carry. we are already on so many lists that I dont think one more matters. I suspect that when a person buys a gun and the seller calls for the background check you go into a data base, there are organization member lists--lots of lists.




    Use the permit option while we can it has saved lives.

                I have friends who are so paranoid, they won't buy from a dealer. They only purchase guns through private FTF transactions. Personally, I think that if it ever came to the government attempting to disarm all citizens, whether your name is on a list or no... you won't be safe. Jackboots will be kicking down every door. I'd rather have the right to carry anywhere because you can never know where and when a SHTF moment will happen.

                    interesting take on it but i imagine purchasing the firearm you are already on the list
                    leads me to another question i've had....

                    its commonplace in many states/areas that if you are involved in a shooting incident they take your firearm and also clear out your gun safe and basicly leave you defenseless..... should you have the option and the time should you call wifey or whoever and have them clear it out before the cops come....hide the guns?

                    i've had this happen to me....but thankfully they only cleared out the 1 safe and missed the second.....had no warning and no way to do anything as i was already handcuffed... the guns they took with them all came back after i was cleared and thankfully all of my 'never registered' firearms were in the 2nd safe and thus still have no record...

                    were it a katrina situation and they were taking weapons would you hide the go0d stuff and leave a few 22's or somethin in the safe so they would take em and leave or fight the police/gov't?

                    i'm big on making hiding places false panels and such and just wondered if anyone else had considered those options rather than complete surrender of your firearms or bloody fight to the death?
                    Barack Obama is the first politician I have ever known that has met or exceeded every one of my expectations. As bad as I thought he would be, I truly had no idea.

                      they would have a hard time finding my hiding spots......

                        Secret hiding places for a gun? *shifty eyes* Don't know what you're talking about... but if I had *gives knowing nod* built a hidden safe near impossible to find... I wouldn't say *wink wink*

                          If you have filled out a 4473 to buy a gun your on a list. All they would need to do, would go to dealers pick up papers and start going to the address . I would hope they would find Armed citizens standing on the streets waiting . Similar thing happened long ago in a place called Lexington Mass . Government dogs ran in to armed citizens their. Later they begin having a really bad day from lots of armed citizens .
                          People look at Afghan Call them terrorist or what ever but they are Armed citizens and we can't seem to get them under control With all our military . Think if the people here went in revolt they could really control a few million armed citizens. How many of out Military police and others come over.

                          If a million or more unarmed people marched on Washington in protest and took control by shear numbers of the capital building and THREW out the congress and senators . Telling them its over we could have a new government. We could bring down this present government by shear numbers Their would be people killed and fighting . But the more that came the better the chances. Unarmed or poorly armed people all through history have taken back their country . Look at Thailand they have forced their so called leader to call for new elections They lost lives in fights with military but they have prevailed .
                          Trouble is here in USA can't get people to turn of the TV sports or other silly shows Put down the beer and do anything. So we the 300 million + remain a control population. Controlled by less than 550 people . Most of who need a close life altering experience with a tree or lamp post. That would help them see thing in a different light.
                          Our founders are crying in their graves . They gave us a near perfect form of government and it has been taken away by a few hundred.
