I suppose FBI, ATF, IRS, local law enforcement, and Antifa. 

I'm not worried about the US Army or Marines.  They would never follow an executive order to confiscate.
I'm not worried about my local law enforcement. They don't like the idea either.

What if it more than an executive "order"? What if a Democratic Socialist controlled Congress passes a bill and a Democratic Socialist President signs it into law?

Do you think our military would obey such a law?

Get out your crystal ball Chief...

I certainly HOPE not!   Some might.   But their superior officers would order them to stand down.
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Obama purged the upper ranks of our military and installed politically reliable Generals and Admirals. I think they are still there...

How about this?

Since they can't ban guns by law, they will try using extralegal methods.

Trump seems to be in on it. What a surprise...

If the State required that a citizen obtain a special licence to keep and bear arms, would that be an infringement on the 2nd Amendment?


Yes

Jeff made a valid point.  The slippery-slope foundation to gun licensing was established a LONG time ago. (National Firearms Act enacted in 1934)

This was your question Chief-

"Would the Supreme Court allow Gun Licensing legislation to be passed into Law?"

The answer is yes, they have already allowed it.

Are we talking about being a little bit pregnant?


Automatic weapons require licensing.   What's to stop them from requiring all semi-auto weapons to be licensed?

What's to stop them from requiring smooth-bore flintlock muskets to be licensed?

The answer is nothing.  Cry   Precedence has already been set.

Jeff made a good point?  Wow.  You don't post for a few months, and you miss so much ...

The government has no business knowing our business or who has guns.  It's not a slippery slope, gun licensing is already there with violating our rights

If there is going to be obligatory gun licensing, then what happens if:

a, there's a huge demand for gun licenses like say 72 million?

b, gun licenses are used as status symbols to popularize owning Arms or arms?

c, there's a desire for keeping, bearing, and using Arms or arms responsibly to protect innocents from being injured including fatal injuries?

Probably you'll have to jump through a lot of hoops, then wait for years to have your request denied.

Or maybe they'll just confiscate your previously unlicensed guns and charge you with a crime for having had them.
