“1 down and 534 to go”, in reference to the Giffords shooting. With no conviction of a crime, or even charges--a Massachusetts gun owner has lost his right to own guns based on that line in his blog.
This is a major reason we resist registration and licensing. He has been deemed 'unsuitable' due to political speech--I believe the speech in question to be tasteless, but constitutionally protected.
If the second amendment allows someone's guns to be rounded up due to some government official's opinion of suitability, what exactly does it protect?
There are other bill of rights issues involved as well--should the government be allowed to revoke other licenses based on someone speaking freely, if they are meeting the standards of the license? Should a driver's license be revoked if someone is accused of driving drunk or speeding, with no arrest, charges or conviction?
