Thoughts on 'ban-resistant' guns or workarounds

This will be mostly conjecture and theory, but what are your plans/thoughts for living through another 'assault weapon ban'? I'm assuming the normal things - magazine-capacity limits, the 'evil feature' count on AR's; maybe even bans on all detachable-magazine fed semiautos, although I don't think that would be in the first round of things we'd see.

Basically a 'what if' thing. If you were going to be in that situation (whether like the 94-04 AWB or different), what would your fallback options be?

On long guns, I'd expect to see specific guns or features (pistol braces, etc) outlawed and/or magazine restrictions. If I couldn't have my AR pistol, it would be an AR rifle. If I couldn't have an AR rifle, then the AK or M1 carbine. If all box-fed autos were out the window, I'd probably default to a levergun. On capacity, if all we had were 10-rounders, oh well I guess that's just life.

Handguns, I'd expect magazine-capacity restrictions first. If stuck with 10-round magazines, again, so be it. I have them for several guns, and have magazine blocks for more. I don't see autos being outlawed as a species, but if they did, a moonclip-fed revolver would be my edc gun.

We can say "I'll never comply" and spout and rant all we want, but in the long run, sometimes things are out of our control. For at least as long as my terminally-ill wife is still alive, I'm staying out of prison. No way I'm gonna go to jail and leave her to die alone; it really is that simple for me.

Curious for others' thoughts on what you think we're likely to see, and what would be the response or workaround for it.

It'll be whittled down one firearm type at a time.
Until there's nothing left.
Then expect it's going to get as PC as England or worse.

I've never talked much about my family or my upbringing.
But if I have to I'll revert back to using the full family last name and get dual citizenship in Poland.
I'll cut to the chase and say on my father's side of the family Grandpa served in Haller's Army in both WWI and the Polish-Soviet war. Grandma's brothers also fought against the Soviets. My great uncle and my namesake survived the Nazis/Soviet invasion of Poland and served in Anders Army aka Polish Free Forces in the British Army.

Last time I looked there were only approximately 20 people in the whole of Poland with the same family name.

Me being disarmed is not an option.

I recently picked up a bolt action, think I may have mentioned it in another thread
Remington 700, someone already tricked it out to take AICS Magazines so far I have a 5 and 10 round one.
Heavy yes but quick to reload and I want at least 5 more 10rd magazines.

I still have 2 12ga shotguns.

No lever actions yet. Probably get a Henry as they've gone side loading gate.

Handguns well now Glock 43x and what 48? Take a magazine specific to them only and only 10rds.

Revolvers I used to have plenty but now just a S&W 442 Pro in .38spl.

Now since all ammo is pretty scarce anyway if I could get a 7-8 shot DA revolver or two in .327 Federal Magnum I may strongly consider it.

But honestly I don't trust the leftists and their idiot following in the Democrat party and one bit.

While we are in different countries, we have a similar problem. I look to the results of New Zealand's answer. They dropped the hammer on one day and made a large percentage of firearms in the country illegal, both registered and non registered. You would be stupid not to turn in a firearm that was registered to your name, but only 13-17% of legal law abiding firearms owners turned in the non registered firearms. If this bs continues up here in Canada, I see similar results.

First of all I don't think a major ban will happen. 300 million guns are ESTIMATED to be out there. A lot to legislate away. But I'll play. I would keep the two Garands of course, and the fixed magazine SKS's. Probably the SMLE's too. Revolvers and under 10 round magazines are covered by the Colt .45 MKIV, and S&W .45. I also have a Taurus M66 in .357 and various others about the place. East German Makarov for carry. The 8MM Mauser's also. I have more ammo for these than I'll probably ever shoot. COme to think of it, where did I get all this stuff?

Oh I darn near forgot about the Remington 1903A3 in .30-'06 and the post war National Ordnance one. The former being original is stripper clip loadable. The later for it being a cast receiver lacks a clip guide.

Oh and I was misled on Henry offering a .327Fed Magnum in a side loading gate model. So, it's .357 Magnum for me.,. I'll look into a pair of GP100's or S&W 686's with 7 shots and 3-4" barrels.
And a matching Henry or two in .357mag.

Are you talking to yourself again?

Didn’t you meekly surrender to the police on multiple occasions?

You really can't respond without making yourself look like a complete idiot can you? Not one time did you ever put up a fight. Not to the locals, not to the State and not to the Federals. Every time it was "Put your hands behind your back" and you meekly complied. Only on the computer are you tough and no one was posting about you anyway.

Who is the "you" that you're speaking to?

Also, they already DID do it, at least partially, in 1994. We just got lucky that it sunsetted after a decade. The next one may not.

The Sunset clause was demanded by the Republicans to let it out of Committee, the 94 Ban was one of the causal factors in the Democrats Losing both the House and Senate majorities for the first time in something like 80 years, in 96. They're already going after Pistol Braces hard, and Biden hasn't even been sworn, they're also leaning on 80% kit makers as well. The Carrot is if you have a Pistol with a Brace, they'll let you Form 1 it with no Stamp Tax, for a shore period...making a Defacto Registry. There's been talk about putting both "Assault Weapons" (Using the Definitions in the Ca, NJ, NY, and Sunsetted Federal Statutes), AND Hi-Cap (ie. Standard) Magazines under the NFA...Personally i think that's just a scare tactic, because if they DID do that, they'd have to open the registry, and at that Point, if you have to Stamp it, **** it, drill out that 3rd hole and register it with a Happy Switch. I think in the end, This will be a lot like the Obama years, LOTS of ****-talking, but little legislation, mostly because a good portion of the people who have been buying up Guns and Ammo since the COVID thing started are Democrats too. Biden is going to be a Lame Duck, until they depose him and put Harris in... If the Republicans hold the senate, things shouldnt change all that much, next Midterms have the potential to go either way.
