The OP's questions presuppose that it will be POSSIBLE to take up arms and fight/revolt.
The way I see events unfolding, the scenario would go like this: The Supreme Court makes a ruling that private gun ownership is now illegal. It may
or may not be announced on the nightly news. If it is announced, an "amnesty period" may be allowed for citizens to turn in their weapons. If it
is not announced, a bulletin could be sent to every police station in the country with their morning report along with a list of all registered gun
owners. Troops come bursting into your house and take your guns (while you're at work, school, etc.) or wait until the middle of the night. Do you
really believe that you're going to jump up out of bed in your pajamas, groggy with interrupted sleep, grab your bedside pistol and mount an
offensive campaign against the troop of wide-awake, kevlar-vested, AK-47-toting, military-trained soldiers in your bedroom? I find it doubtful. Will
your neighbors come to your rescue? Again, doubtful.
I think there are a lot of lard-a**ed, belicose bragadacios out there who firmly believe that they are going to survive because "By God, I don't
take no crap offa nobody!" I call this group the By Godders. They're not usually associated with any group, fire maybe 50 rounds a year at the
local gun range, once a year, drink heavily, smoke like chimneys, eat bacon sandwiches every meal and whose only exercise consists of running their
mouths and jumping to conclusions. The only thing they read is the weekly TV guide but they are confident of their self-preservation. They're
easily recognized at the gun shows by their brave remarks such as, "By God they can have my gun when they pry my cold, dead fingers off the
If you have any doubts about whether you're in the company of a bs'ing "by godder", check the body language. Their irrational statements are
usually accompanied by a sharp nasal inhalation of unfelt confidence (a snort) followed by a cocky tilt of the head, a half smirk-half snarl that
smacks of white trash vulgarity and a yanking up of their sagging trousers to cover up the exposed crack of their rotund derriers. If that type
survives a crisis of any sort it will be only by sheer luck and probably at the expense of someone else.
I say that if you have weapons, cache them now for use later. You may not get a chance to fight back when you're ready. I don't think a global
coup as well organized as the NWO is turning out to be will allow you any choice in timing, terrain, or situation.
