Sidebar for my American friends, from a Canadian:Don't admit to owning a firearm on the internet. Imagine if the USA follows Canada in banning firearms and they may look through forums like this for proof of gun ownership. It is OK to share advice about guns, but don't directly admit to owning a gun, bow and arrow, large knife, pepper spray, or a sword. The ban on weapons won't stop with guns.
Registration = confiscation
