    Lol, the gun confiscation has already started- every time some old guy gets red flagged by the kids for his “arsenal.”

    I agree, it's deferred compensation, however the government has the purse strings and as you said they can pull them anytime. So my philosophy is that's fine if people have pensions or as I do 401k and IRAs, not a big fan of social security but it exists and we pay into it so ok, but I just have the awareness all that stuff can get taken over somehow or otherwise finagled, hence having other sources of income and assets is always good.

    On the federal law enforcement level, I from time to time work with several agencies and from what the various agents tell me in general they are swamped just dealing with violent gangs, drugs and illegal alien crime. Do they have the time and energy and desire to go and beat down Grandpa Joe's place to get his AR?
    They aren't in it for the money. It's a certain personality type drawn to those positions.
