Every totalitarian state in history made liberal use of the ordinary cops for its political roundups,

and no police element has ever mutinied or walked off the job when faced with that task. For example, the Gestapo and SS did not need to round up the Jews in occupied France: the ordinary French beat cops were glad to do it. None of them was ever punished; they transferred their loyalty seamlessly and unquestionably from the 3rd Republic to Vichy to the occupying power to the 4th Republic. Likewise, the Weimar cops became Nazi cops, who in turn became East or West German cops, and now unified Federal German cops. Hitler? Stalin? Who cares, we can retire at 45 with a good pension, and no one will miss a few Jews. Caching your Guns for a Civil War, Parts I and II | WeaponsMan

Your Say

Expect similar here. No policeman is your friend. There are a few exceptions. A few.

Suppose the gov't required the vehicle insurance companies to ask each of their policy holders if they ever transport a firearm in their vehicle(s) to sign a legally binding affidavit stating such.

(If you have only purchased firearms from private owners and are therefore not on any gov't database indicating you possess a registered firearm, these affidavits now confirm to the gov't that you do indeed possess firearm(s).

A year or 2 later the insurance company demands that you carry a liability policy for the firearm(s) that you previously stated you possess in said vehicle(s).

The vehicle insurance companies then *share* this database with the health insurance companies which then also require you to carry a firearms liability policy.

The health insurance companies then *share* this database with the property insurance companies and they in turn require the liability insurance as well.

Soon, you are paying for (3) or more liability insurance policies for your firearms.

The next step will be to price the liability policies based upon the number and types of firearms you possess and the amount of ammunition you possess. (after all, why should someone with just 1 firearm pay the same amount for insurance as someone with 20 firearms?) All of this will be confirmed as truthful on your part by your signature on the policies, and if it is discovered at a later date that your information is not truthful you could be prosecuted under federal firearms violations.

Each time you acquire or dispose of any firearm you would be required to report it to all of the insurance companies so that the cost of the policy can be adjusted accordingly.
