Gun confiscation and political gamesmanship

Stumbled across an old news item while doing some reading today.

Story's from Germany, not long after the Nazis' rise to power.

As reported by the New York Times, March 20, 1933:
BERLIN, March 20. -- Charging that Professor Albert Einstein had a huge quantity of arms and ammunition stored in his secluded home in Caputh, the National Socialists sent Brown Shirt men and policemen to search it today, but the nearest thing to arms they found was a bread knife.
Are similar searches (and witch hunts) coming soon to America?

What are the chances we'll soon see raids on high profile people in places like New York or Connecticut in attempts to search out and seize "illegal" and "unregistered" arms in accordance with gun control laws passed there in 2013?

Yes, it could happen. But probably not until after the November elections.

On the other hand, concerns about possible confiscation are already ramping up after a recent extraction of records from a gun shop in New York.
