You are defining defending oneself against a confiscatory opressive government as attacking? I make the same warning: Anyone, I mean ANYONE, who tries to come and confiscate my guns will not live to see the sun set. That will not be an attack, it will be a defense, and an effective one. Confiscating guns not only violates the 2nd amendment, but the 4th, 5th, and 9th.

Moreover, on your inclusion of spousal/child abusers in your confiscatory regieme, what standards will you have of what abuse is as well as what the burden of evidence and standards of due process will be? As they stand now, the abuse regs are very weak and do not give very good protection to the accused.
