Antiques Are No Longer Yours If Dems Get Their Way
Whether for target practice, shooting skeet, hunting, or self-defense, gun owners have always been fascinated.
Historical records show guns were invented around 1364. There are stories of guns which were used in famous wars such as The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, World Wars I and II. Famous stories also were passed down from the Wild West era.
Many of these guns were handed down from generation to generation. But imagine finding one of these guns in an attic or hidden somewhere on your property. The excitement would be overwhelming and the story behind them can be even more intriguing.
Imagine owning one, and one day the government says to hand it over. This is what is happening overseas and could happen here if we do not stand up for The Second Amendment.
Gun regulations were put into effect in 1968. It states any gun made before December 31, 1898, is considered an antique and does not need to be registered.
Every state has a different set of laws and should always be double checked before assuming. This is the definition from the National Firearms Act:
26 U.S.C. § 5845(G)
“For the purposes of the National Firearms Act, the term “Antique Firearms” means any firearm not intended or redesigned for using rim fire or conventional center fire ignition with fixed ammunition and manufactured in or before 1898 (including any matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system or replica thereof, whether actually manufactured before or after the year 1898) and also any firearm using fixed ammunition manufactured in or before 1898, for which ammunition is no longer manufactured in the United States and is not readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade.”
The Contemporary period began in 1900 and the Historical period of firearms ended.
Chances are slim to none any gun before the Civil War can be fired, but there are some that do exist.
If a gun is passed down through generations and remains in the family, the story is passed down with it. However, there are stories of people who stumble across finding these rare jewels and do not have or know the story of a historical gun.
So how does one go about finding that information?
If the gun has a serial number, it will be easy to research and find information.
The local sheriff’s department could research it. An antique model will not have the serial numbers on them due to there were no regulations or laws which required it to be placed on the gun.
The gun will have the manufacturer printed on the gun which can be researched through their website.
A gun dealer will also be able to find more information on collectibles and antiques for a price. In some cases, they may even find out who owned the gun, where it came from, and what how it was used.
As of the beginning of this year, England started cracking down on gun owners who own antique guns.
The country is gun free, well, except for the criminals. Up until recently, antique guns were allowed in England at the private owner’s discretion.
Now they are looking to ban those too and confiscate everything.
Get ready friends, this is what will happen in America if the Liberals and the Left keep getting their way.
Imagine that gun in the closet or on display where the ghostly stories of our ancestors will be taken away.
What if there was a gun found in an attic, purchased at an auction, or a collectible gun purchased at a gun show? Those will be taken away too! It is legal to own now but think of the value or history of the gun and its meaning.
It would rip the heart out of anyone who is forced to hand it over. If antiques and collectibles are outlawed, the value of the gun will drop.
It would be devastating if this would ever happen in America.
There are many people who own the guns of their Great, Great, and even more Great Grandfathers.
A gun is no different than any other item passed down from generation to generation or an antique purchased at a flea market or auction. It is a piece of history and can never be replaced.
Many famous people in history have their weapons and guns in museums.
Imagine owning one and it is your own possession. It would most likely start another war.
