Should the communist coup succeed, there is no reason believe that the incoming administration won't do everything they can to ban modern firearms. We may not see an assault weapons ban right away, but you can bet the ATF has a reclassification of AR pistol braces waiting in the wings, ready to drop as a fait accompli as the bump fire stock ban.
From here on out, the "boating accident" meme where you lost your guns isn't going to float. A regime truly bent on confiscating firearms will not be satisfied with excuses until they track down each one that you have or make you pay for your lies. Giving up some red herring guns to get them to leave the rest of your collection alone is like telling the wolf "eat me last."
If a new American government attempts to "buyback" guns or confiscate them Australia-style, it will be an act that is totally ill-legitimate under the Constitution and the inherent rights of man. Should the Constitution be amended to eliminate or nullify the Second Amendment, the social contract with government on guns is over. Even a packed Supreme Court ruling could have the same effect. It is clear that the founding fathers intended for the average person to have the means to overthrow totalitarian government.
Our attitude must become one of non-compliance and resistance (hard and soft). Don't turn your stuff in, because if you do, all it will take is a simple knock at the door to take you away for your past wrongthink. Every time guns were taken away by totalitarians, governments did bad things. We're on the cusp of seeing that in the formerly democratic countries.
How you choose to resist is an individual choice and not one to be taken lightly. I do know that we must stand firm together and provide a large, uniform resistance that is too powerful to stop. They can't get everyone and non-compliance in the face of obviously immoral laws and regulations will delegitimize the mission in the minds of many people; cops, politicians, and civilians.
No more joking about boating accidents. Come and take them needs to be our mantra.
