    Selling Out of Fear?

    I'm disappointed when I see sale ads with things like this in them:

    "I'm selling this Vz58 cheap because I'll be honest: I'm scared about this impending gun ban, so I'm getting rid of all my restricted rifles. However, this rifle has not been banned; but I'm fearing for the worst that it will be the next on the chopping block. I also do not have any feedback on the EE, as this is my first exchange, so I don't really feel like I should be charging too much and I feel this is a fair price."

    It is disappointing, but can we really blame those who will chose this route? I think we're only going to see more of this unless we see some real changes happening (not just talk).

    Not everyone can afford to just throw away money, and lets face it - hanging on to one of these right now carries a very high potential of having an armed government employee showing up at your door.

    Except that the sale item is a 7.5" CSA Vz58.

    I don't know. On one hand I want to be angry and call it cowardice. On the other, I can understand it as a cautious preparation for the worst.

    it all depends how important the item in question is to the seller, and how important guns in general are to the seller, and whether they attach any other conditions to themselves owning guns ie hobby vs 1776 style freedom or death...

    Cowardly.

    First: There is a 5 year amnesty.

    Second: This is only the first step.

    Why would anyone jump the gun and sell?

    Some, even here, are not convinced the amnesty is good or good enough for now and that's it's a method to buy time to implement further solutions.
    Don't blame me, I didn't vote for 'em.
