With the amount of media coverage on gun-related accidents, politicians are pushing for more gun control or even outright gun bans.
Gun Control | A Closer Look on Future Gun Restrictions
Possible Firearms in the Restriction List
What is your stance on the gun control debate? We've seen pushes for the 5.56 ammo ban and I don't believe gun bans are a far-off possibility.
These are five guns that I believe will be the first to go when gun rights are restricted and a gun ban comes into effect. If you want to make sure you don't miss out on opportunities to own any of these guns, look below to see which ones I think are on the shortlist to be banned and get them while you still can.
You will probably notice that all of the firearms on this list are semi-automatic weapons following the National Firearms Act (NFA) and are often associated with violence because of their look alone.
Tell us if you see any other links between them and let us know which other guns you think gun control in America would put a ban on first in the comments section below.
1. Classic AR-15
The news media thinks because it looks scary and cool. It's automatically more deadly, right?
2. Saiga 12 Gauge Shotgun
This 12-gauge can shoot 15 shots in under 3 seconds easily getting it on the list for a gun ban.

A great choice for home defense.
3. IWI – Tavor
This bullpup semi-automatic sporting rifle takes standard AR-15 pattern magazines. This is an example of a gun the media looks at and sees as a frightening and futuristic design.
So obviously it must be more deadly than another firearm.
4. Saiga AK-47
This is an example of the type of guns politicians love to go after because they are scary-looking and have obtained a bad reputation due to their use by terror groups. This is sad because this is a weapon many Americans take out and just have fun with.
5. Barrett M107
This is the king of rifles. The .50 caliber Barrett M107 represents the pinnacle of big-bore anti-material firepower in a very portable package.
Watch this video by Iraqveteran8888 about the five guns the government doesn't want you to have:
At the end of the day, these firearms are nothing more than modern semi-automatic sporting rifles. There is a misconception that gun owners are crazy weirdos but many of us integrate these guns into our family activities.
We go, have fun with the kids, and do some shooting. These guns are no different than any other firearm, other than they may look more frightening to the media.
Do you think it's fair to restrict these firearms from ownership? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
