    Great, let's just hope that it will never happen then, instead of making a change to the law so that is is explicitly illegal!

    Remember how many so-called law enforcement officers "just followed orders" in LA, where there wasn't an explicit law saying they could not confiscate guns?

    I heard that LEOs have arrest powers for all misdemeanor offenses, while the rest of us can only arrest for felony or a misdemeanor against ourself/company/family... or something like that. IANAL.

    Note that this set of bills also includes the strengthened preemption to counter our anti-gun zealot AG, and the stand-your-ground bill too. I believe these two issues are more likely to have an impact on us than the confiscation language, but all three are important.

    It is better to have Favorable Firearms-related Legislation Passed into Law, as Opposed to going without such Legal Precendent in Todays Generally Anti-Firearm America.
    Absent This Important Legislation, There is ALWAYS SOMEONE who will Attmept to Strike The Second Amendment, and its Protections..., in one Fashion or another.
