The government wants to control the manufacture, sale and possession of guns and they are starting with assault weapons.
They know that assault weapons are not the cause of gun homicides. This begs the question – is this the prelude to the confiscation of the weapon most commonly used in gun homicides – handguns?
They are fully ready to confiscate guns while claiming they are not.
An internal DOJ memo uncovered by the NRA states that the government plans to limit all importation, manufacture, sale and possession of large capacity magazines:
In order to have an impact, large capacity magazine regulation needs to sharply curtail their availability to include restrictions on importation, manufacture, sale, and possession. An exemption for previously owned magazines would nearly eliminate any impact.
The memo asserts that assault weapons are not the major cause of the gun crimes and a ban on them would have little impact, especially given the fact that it would take decades to deplete the supply.
They therefore suggest that gun confiscation is the way to go:
Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be effective. [Bold by editor]
They want mandatory gun registration of all firearms. This would be a prelude to confiscating other guns.

All of you Obama supporters – what are you doing to us?
