5. We have already seen an "Assault Weapons Ban" under Clinton.
So it "could" happen again. But I think the first ban caused these rifles to become so wildly popular that it might be politically very dangerous to try it again. Still, I'd kick myself if I didn't get them when I could, then we did see a ban. The next ban might not have a sunset.

But I agree that confiscations are not remotely possible. Anybody suggesting that it is possible is a bit off the deep end.
