It seems our fuzzy friend missed what happened in Nevada.
I believe that the government blinked first in that little showdown.
READ VERY CAREFULLY: I know you like to read the first sentence or two and skip the rest.
If SHTF and the government wanted they could have used drones.
It was the guns that put them off in Nevada, just the thought of having to mow there own citizens down. If they really wanted too they would have
sent tanks, armored vehicles or even a helicopter in. I bunch of Brits with shotguns and hunting rifles would have given the same issue.
IF all out war broke out then your stockpile of guns would not be a war winner. It would be those with stockpiles of food, medicine and clothing.
The guns and much better ones in a civil war or revolution will find there way in. Plus if civil war now days are anything to go by most people wont
even be using there guns, it will be IEDs, Car bombs, booby traps and over partisan tricks, gun deaths will account for very few of the causality's,
the days of open battles are OVER.
Unless someone has F-22 stockpiled and Apache helicopters then a open battle wont ever happen and if it did it would be a complete and utter slaughter
for the rebels.
If you want to prepare for resisting tyranny this are the priority's:
1) Organization and command structure
2) Food, food and even more food.
3) Medical supplies
4)Clothing for all weathers and conditions + Spares and boots, boots and more boots!
5) Bomb/IED and booby trap makeing
6) Evasion tactic.
7) Lastly Guns + Ammo, or even better know the people to go to to buy guns and ammo off the grid. In fact seeing as gun break ect its better to know
where to get them for the future.
Now if SHTF in the UK and revolution broke out there are a number of people of "ill repute" in my area alone that will flood the UK with guns. As I
stated before the local mafia imported hundred of AK-47 and hand guns very easily, they just ended up dumped in the local river as no one would buy
them. If that happened then then Im sure thousands of hand guns and assault weapons will flood the UK if the market arose for such things. Thats how
the world works, just ask Assad and Gadaffi or wait the people killed the latter one with imported guns from the west!.
Now I respect the USA 2nd Amendment in the fact if the USA loves it so much you can keep it, I wont try and get Piers Morgan about it as I dont live
there and it dont effect me. But dont pretend its about protecting tyranny ect Its cause guns are cool, simple and obviously its useful for home
protection and hunting.
And dont get all high and mighty over the UK either like we are lesser people or more prone to tyranny because we lack guns.
1) UK never has had a gun culture or obsession with guns. That's just us. Ok cool the USA does, good for you (?) but we dont. Its not good or bad
, just a difference
2) We are quite capable to standing up against tyranny thank you. If the time for armed revolution came we would get what we needed the same way
every other rebellious people have (see above, IE gun runners and interfering nations) plus you can have all the guns you you like but if the people
are cowards or lazy then it dont matter. Us Britain's are known for our riotous unruly nature. Hell thats why the USA exists cause you took our
unruly nature to the colonies!
3) UK is a Democracy, our government didn't forcefully ban guns, the UK people wanted it and got it, now I don't particularly agree with that decision
but that's how the UK works.
Just remember the American Revolution nearly died a early death in Vally forge with the patriots freezing and starving to death, luckily the french
came with supplies and bailed you guys out.
