With all the talk of firearm bans, registries and confiscation, what would it take to remove each and every fire arm in the US from civilian hands.

I am talking logistics of removal, repercussions, social changes and Geo political changes.

It would seem this task would take a long time to accomplish. The estimated US firearm count is 270 million. This is a subject that came up quite often when I was working, and the debates were very interesting.

A stomach for a great deal of violence and bloodshed.

In practical terms, it would take every law enforcement officer in the country going house to house non-stop for several years.

Simply put,
It can't be done, it won't be done.

We won't allow it.

Nothing short of Bloody Civil War. I've seen what happens when peoples have their guns confiscated. Nothing good.

A civil war? Who do you think would win, citizens with guns or citizens with spoons?

The National Guard, active duty military, Police, and armed Federal agencies as well as a U.N. "Peacekeeping" force on a large scale.

Get ready for some high level politicians actually planning this.

Don't think for a second that somebody doesn't have a plan.

Well, it certainly would 'liven' things up in my state.

Scary thoughts!

Knock, knock " this is the civilian safety force and we have records of # firearms at this address. Open the door we are here to remove the contraband."

Your move.

I doubt Q would be first on their list... by then the war will already be in full swing with Martial Law declared across the board. So you either take the fight to them or try and survive in the woods.

I shoot to kill. Then hide in my vault stacked with ammo and food.

True, the threat would be real but it also would be organized and your right, going alphabetical would be highly probable.

Depends on how many of their own casualties the force trying to take them away are prepared to deal with,because they will lose many if they try it.
