They aren't going to look for gold any more extensively than they did in the 30s, and that's if (huge IF) they were going to confiscate it. They might watch as you open your safe deposit box, and things like that. I doubt house-to-house searches will occur, and if they do, gun confiscations would have had to occur first.
By the time the government gets desperate enough to confiscate, it will be powerless to do so effectively.
Most that are smart enough to hold it will be smart enough to hide it.
In a currency crisis, everything will be done on the black market anyway.
I don't think it will be any more difficult to find someone who wants to barter for my illegal gold than it is today to find someone who wants to buy illegal drugs (especially if there is a sudden shortage).
Good purchase. I bought a couple silver bars recently: http://www.monarchpreciousmetals.com...mart&Itemid=53
No more IRS.
I am now old enough to vote.
Disclosure: I go own gold and will be holding. I just wouldnt buy anymore at these prices. I got it back when it was 700/oz
