When you commit a crime and are convicted, and later find a way to purchase a handgun or assault rifle though a private party or gun show, you do NOT own that gun. You ILLEGALLY POSSESS that gun. You gave up the right to own a gun when you committed the crime, beat your wife, were dishonorably discharged from the military, or stalked someone to the point that they took out a restraining order on you. Through free choice, your actions voided your own rights. That GUN belongs to the state. They can come and take it and destroy it. If you're not a felon, mentally ill, dishonorable discharge, domestic abuser, restraining order, or a fugitive from justice, then this doesn't apply. Nor does most of what will be put into place in the months to come. If you're a law-abiding citizen who follows the rules, you may have to fill out an extra form at a gun show, but that's about it. Your life won't change one bit. If you're mentally ill, we know you didn't choose that situation, and it may seem unfair that the sheriff will be taking away your guns, but it's for your own safety and the safety of your community.
