It's happening here. State by State. The noose gets tighter all the time. Who would've ever thought that one state is allowed to buy a model of gun and another could not? If you have a license to carry a firearm, why aren't you able to purchase any federally legal gun covered under that license? Chipping away and nobody is doing anything to stop it.

If you look at the overall picture and not through Mass colored glasses there have actually been some decent gains. Constitutional carry, Castle laws ect.
The biggest thing that some people fail to grasp is that there is a big difference between places like New Zealand and here.
One is the constitution .
The other is people there have been subjects not citizens for generations.
We on the other hand drove the last "Rulers" into the sea.

“Disarmament Denier” - A gun owner who says it can never happen here. One needs a firearms certificate to keep a flare-gun on a boat in many EU countries. Presumably having a boat is just cause for issue...

“Category (iii) [prohibited weapons] affects the kind of small firearm that is easily concealed and yet confers high firepower. For this reason, muzzle-loading weapons (including cap and ball revolvers) and flare pistols are deliberately excluded. It should be remembered that the 1997 Act did not ban pistols as such and was drafted in terms of small firearms. NB: category (iii) includes ‘specially dangerous' air pistols and ‘specially dangerous’ short air rifles (see paragraph 3.24).”

It is not happening here. If you pay attention, slowly, more and more states are loosening up on gun laws. The problem is we live in this sh*thole State.

However, people need to keep fighting. Because it takes years and money to get rid of a law, but it takes days to vote a new law.

Keep telling yourself that. The States that are loosening up laws are the all in favor States. Every year more states are moving to crack down.
